Shower seat selection for your facility is
easy if you keep a couple of factors in mind. Shower seats and shower stalls
can be a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi which can spread infections
and create unpleasant odors. We recommend that you select a shower seat that
is bacteria and fungi resistant and one that can be folded against the wall
of the shower stall to make cleaning of the seat and shower floor easy.
Stainless steel or laminated polyethylene shower seats that are impregnated
with a long lasting antimicrobial agent such as Microban are your best
choices for maintaining a healthy shower stall. Additionally, select a
shower seat that has stainless steel frames and mounting brackets so that
you will have a shower seat that can support the necessary weight and abuse
requirements of your patrons. Mounting the shower seat according to
manufacturer’s specifications using the correct corrosion resistant screws
and mounting brackets is very important.
All of the shower seats we
recommend have high gauge stainless steel frames and mounting brackets that
are designed to resist corrosion and are adequate support for anyone when
attached properly to the shower wall. Be sure to select a shower seat that
can be folded against the shower wall when not in use so that cleaning of
the shower stall floor is easy and so that the underside parts of the shower
seat can be disinfected as easily as the top side.
Microban’s bacteria and
fungi resistant quality is not diminished by washing so these seats are
comparable to stainless steel seats for bacteria and fungi resistance. Teak
wood seats are very popular and aesthetically appealing but will require
more frequent cleaning with antibacterial cleaners. When selecting a shower
seat think safety and cleanliness – keep these in mind and shower seat
selection is simple.
