Custom cabinets are available by special order: • Cabinet height can be adjusted plus/minus 3-inches – for a door entrance between 17 and 23-inches. • Cabinet fronts can be custom-matched to the profile of existing cabinetry • Tub can be ordered without cabinet fronts, to allow for on-site cabinet matching or tile front. • Tub can be ordered without cabinet base and the base can be custom-built on-site.

  16. 16.

Accessible Baths for www.aquassure.com Independent & Assisted Living 17
  18. 18. Ozone Disinfection System Aquassure is pleased to offer a chemical-free, ozone system that sanitizes the equipment without exposing the bather to irritating chemical residues or ozone. The O3 System will sanitize the bathtub system after each and every use. The O3 System minimizes the risk of cross- contamination infections. After a bath cycle, the O3 System automatically activates a one-hour delay timer for the sanitizing process. The system will start the cleaning process for a period of 15 minutes to sanitize the jet systems. There is a manual override if you wish to use the tub while the disinfection system is running. Ozone will eliminate all known disease-causing microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, yeasts, mould, mildew and cysts. It breaks down harmful chemical residue and dissolves minerals. You will not need expensive and potentially harmful cleaning products for this disinfection system. The system is not only safe for the environment, but is also gentle on bathtub components. This system is a recommended add-on to hydrotherapy jet systems, especially in multi-bather and facility situations.Aquassure Accessible Baths Toll Free: 1-866-404-882718
  19. 19.

  22. 22. Support Harness & Seatbelt Some bathers have difficulty remaining in a seated position in the bathtub due to core weakness or paralysis. Aquassure has an optional 4-point seatbelt as well as a belt harness that the bather can use to secure themselves in place once in position for bathing.Aquassure Accessible Baths Toll Free: 1-866-404-882722
  23. 23. The Left sliding door, pictured here, is the most requested Aquassure bath door configuration: This puts the water controls and hand shower at the bather’s right hand. Most people are right handed, and the majority of stroke survivors are affected on their left sides.Left vs. Right Door Bathtub The Right sliding door, shown here, is often used in a location where other existing fixtures and equipment may get in the way of a left door. The water controls and hand-shower is at the bathers left-hand side. Accessible Baths forwww.aquassure.com Independent & Assisted Living 23
