Ella U-Shape Outswing Door Walk-In Bathtubs

Ella U-Shape Outward Swing Door Walk-In Tubs main feature is the door made with industrial grade durable plastic composite material with a decorative tempered glass front screen to conceal the mechanical door lock system. This door is engineered to open outward, facilitating easier access upon entering and exiting.

The outward swing also creates more interior space, which allows bathers to effortlessly sit into the molded seat, pull the door closed and lock it. Ella U-Shape outward swinging door uses a gear and shaft driven 3-latch door lock that edges out our competition, who typically use a single latch/lever system. A 3-latch door system creates a more secure and watertight door seal, providing you with a safe, leak-free bathing experience.

Ella Acrylic Walk-in Tubs are vacuum formed from a solid, long-lasting acrylic sheet. The non-porous material in white gloss finish is easy to clean and impermeable to mold and mildew. Under the acrylic shell facade is a rust proof, stainless steel frame reinforced with multiple fiberglass mesh and gelcoat layers to ensure the durability of the tub’s structure. The frame has multiple leveling legs that can be adjusted for an easier installation and stronger support.

Most Ella walk-in bathtubs come with our unique Ella Dual Drain Technology (DDT) consisting of two 2” gravity driven drains with four 2” outlets, 2 overflows and 2 openers, allowing a fast, reliable drainage. Two caps are also included to cover up to 2 of 4 ports if needed. The 2” drain outlets can be connected to the standard 1 ½” house drain with a T or Y fitting and piping selected by a professional plumber. The drain pipe configuration and selection of the pipes and fittings is up to the homeowner or licensed plumber. However, for the most efficient drainage, please consider connecting to all 4 ports and to a 2” house drain if possible.

Some may wonder how an Ella brand drain can drain faster even though it’s connected to a 1 ½” house drain using a T or Y fitting. That’s because as the water drains, air is pushed through the 2 overflows creating a vent system and reducing the amount of air bubbles preventing a free flow of the water. As a result, this produces the fastest gravity driven drain in the industry. The average drainage time evaluated by our dealers range from only 50 seconds to a couple minutes based on tub size, condition of the house drain and configurations.

Smaller models, the Front Entry and Mobile, use our Single 2” Drain with two 2” outlets that is equipped with an emergency pull up chain. It is still faster than the standard single 1 ½” drain because it has the capability to connect to two 2”drain outlets of your home drain, creating faster drainage.

The Capri is our most popular standard size walk-in bathtub, measuring 30” x 52” with a 20” wide molded seat. It is recommended for average size bathers and built for bathrooms spacious enough to facilitate an outward swing door. The Monaco is the same design as the Capri but made 2” wider, measuring 32” x 52” with a 24” wide molded seat. This model was created to accommodate larger body types and recommended for bathers who want a roomier bathtub interior.

The Lounger is a longer tub at 27” x 59” with a comfortable 19” molded seat. It is designed for taller bathers who require additional legroom and hamstring support. The Lounger is a great fit for narrow bathrooms that have enough space to facilitate an outswing door.

The uniquely narrow size of the Front Entry walk-in tub gives bathers easy access into the oversized, 24” molded seat that faces the door. This tub measures 32” x 40” and comes with 2 side panels, thus covering all 3 sides. The Front Entry is a unique model that can fit in a narrow space whereas a conventional tub or shower cannot.

The Mobile is more compact than a standard size bathtub, measuring 26” x 45” with a spacious 19” wide seat. The Mobile is designed for bathrooms with limited space, making it an ideal selection for those who live in trailers, condos, or bathers looking for a compact bathtub option.

The Shaq is the largest single seat walk-in tub in the WORLD, measuring a whopping 36” x 72.” Sit back and relax in an extra-wide, 29” seat. This never before seen model is designed for athletes and bathers who are taller than 6’4.”

Please consider any bathroom objects that may prohibit you from opening an outswing door when selecting from the outswing door walk-in bathtub models.
