Walk-in bath by Kubex offers the elderly or less able, valuable bathtime indulgence
Kubex UK recently introduced the Solo, a walk-in bath that will provide relief and comfort for many who find it difficult to get out of a conventional bath and fear the indignity of having to call for help. Nicely designed and precision made in Kubex's plant in Kingston-upon-Hull, the Solo has an access point only nine inches from floor level, a comfortable moulded seat and back rest and an inward-opening, profiled door that is simple to use and absolutely leak free.
It has a non-slip floor for additional safety and neatly designed twin, foot-operated wastes that speedily empty the bath so that the bather does not have to wait before leaving.
For those who want the ultimate in bathing luxury, there is also the Solo Whirlpool which offers an eight-jet Hydrotherapy Spa system with directional flow nozzles granting variable flow rates, all operated by one simple on/off button.
The compact Solo unit is 48 inches long by 26 inches wide and 39 inches high [that is 1220 x 660 x 990mm in metric terms] making it ideal for en suite installations as well as for use to transform a standard bathroom.
Since the bath is delivered as a unit, pre-set and factory tested, it is extremely simple to install, is available in a luxury high gloss finish of white or pergamon and bears a five year factory guarantee. The design of the Kubex Solo has been well thought out to allow the less abled bather to enjoy a bath in safety and comfort; even, in the case of those who indulge in the Solo Whirlpool, in luxurious decadence!
