August 21, 2009, Newsletter Issue #180: Have A Shower? Have A Seat

Tip of the Week

Some public restrooms provide shower facilities, and shower seats are necessary if the handicap bathrooms are going to include showers. Handicap bathroom supply stores provide folding shower seats. Provide L-shaped folding shower seats for shower stalls that are 36x36 inches (915mm) to comply with ADA restroom requirements. Mount a shower seat on the wall of the shower opposite the temperature control knobs at a height of 17-19 inches (430-485 mm) above the floor. Be sure that the seat allows enough space for a shower curtain at the front of the shower stall. Avoid skimpy seats; a shower seat and mounting device should be able to support 250 pounds.
