How do Disability Showers Work?
Disability showers operate in the same way that power showers and electric showers operate, with a number of additional features – designed specifically for both safety and ease of operation. These features can include contrasting colours on the control panel, for maximum ease of use and safe operation. Larger buttons, to again increase ease of use, alongside audio feedback for changes in settings and temperatures.
These showers are universally protected by thermostats, which help maintain a safe showering temperature. Once the off button is pressed, these showers gradually cool down, flushing the hot water out of the system – preventing any rapid change in temperature.
The disability showers market is dominated by Mira and Triton, who have developed an excellent safety and performance record in this field. Below are our best sellers.
