"These enclosures allow builders to offer a solution for homeowners with limited mobility, who are concerned about safety in the shower," said Kathryn Needham, universal design product manager for the Delta brand. "However, they are designed to be easy and convenient for users of all ages and abilities, and to complement the décor of a contemporary bathroom."
The Delta brand Contemporary Shower Systems offer innovative features designed to make the user's experience safer and more comfortable:
- Zero threshold entry/trench drain. The shower bases install flush with the floor and feature a trench drain spanning the entire opening. A strong, stainless steel drain cover permits easy access for foot and wheelchair traffic alike. The shower base features a slip-resistant textured floor to help protect against slip-and-fall accidents.
- Flip-up bench. Made with durable high-density polyethylene on a stainless steel frame, the flip-up bench adds comfort and convenience. Easy to clean and maintain, the bench is compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.
- Anti-scald shower system. Delta brand Contemporary Shower Systems come standard with the Grail® 17T shower, including TempAssure® controls, and available with a Delta pressure-balance or thermostatic valve to maintain consistent water temperature within ±3.6º F. The showerhead features Delta Faucet's exclusive Touch-Clean® design. The enclosures also include a Delta brand ActivTouch® handshower, which provides eight spray functions and a pause button to let the user temporarily stop the flow of water.
- Integrated grab bars. A key safety feature, the grab bars also offer attractive styling to complement the shower trim. With a brushed stainless steel finish and a clean, flangeless design, the grab bars meet U.S. government standards and are ADA compliant.
An easy-to-install alternative to custom tile shower alcoves, Delta brand Contemporary Shower Systems installed as four-piece units, making them easy to maneuver into structures and ideal for both new construction and remodeling. The integrated trench drain accommodates up to six gallons of water per minute, eliminating the added time and cost associated with installing a room floor drain or a collapsible threshold.
Grab bars and the seat frame are factory-installed on the wall pieces. The innovative Delta Faucet bracket-and-cleat system makes full contact with the studs, ensuring the strength of the grab bars and seat, while permitting installation of the walls in minutes.
The Delta Faucet MultiChoice® universal valve is also included with the enclosures. This provides greater versatility for upgrading, allowing homeowners or contractors to quickly and easily change the shower trim and valve after the shower enclosure has been installed.
