Economy shower seats offer comfort and space-saving ease in a medium-duty, slim format perfect for smaller showers. Made of aluminum frames and legs, and molded plastic seats and bracket. Economy seats offer rustproof, and durable construction. The closed-cell foam pads are easy to remove and clean. The powder coating on the frame and legs offers another layer of protection from the wet environment. The legs allow height adjustability in ¾” increments, and the fine-tuning adjustment on one foot compensates for floor slope or out of level situations. Seats and arms fold up to increase floor space when needed. Seats are rated for 348 lbs. (user seated) and arms can support up to 122 lbs.
PRODUCT SPECS FOR ECONOMY SHOWER SEAT
Materials: Aluminum and molded plastic. Pads are closed-cell foam.
Adjustability: Every seat includes two forms of height adjustment. Legs can be adjusted in ¾” increments for overall height and one leg is equipped with a fine-tune adjustable foot to compensate for slope in the floor.
Maintenance: Seats should be cleaned routinely with a mild cleanser. Wipe down the entire seat—be sure to remove pads to fully clean the plastic molded parts and pads. Aluminum frames will not rust.
Weight load capacity: 348 lbs. for seated users. Arms support up to 122 lbs.
Seat bracket must be fastened to sturdy material that is well supported in the wall framing. Typically, 2 x 10 or 2 x 12 nominal lumber is installed between studs using cleats or by notching the studs for the blocking (toenailing is not a reliable fastening technique). Installers may use plywood instead of lumber, though the total thickness of the plywood blocking should be at least 1-1/2″ (two pieces of ¾” thick plywood sandwiched together, for example). Be sure to install blocking at the appropriate height for the seat and the user. Use 1/4″-diameter or #12 screws to secure the seat bracket to the wood blocking, and make sure fasteners are long enough to penetrate through all wall materials and bed deeply into the blocking.
The wall to which a seat bracket is mounted must be plumb for the seat to operate properly. The fold-up seat and arms, when swung to the vertical position, must be able to swing past 90° to overbalance in the upright position. If the seat bracket is mounted to a wall that is out of plumb, the seat and arms may not be able to swing past 90°, which may prevent the seat and arms from remaining in the fold-up position.
*Warranty: 10 year residential installation / 5 year commercial installation for original owner.
