The Best ADA Walk-in Shower For Elderly Residents

walk in shower for elderly

The ideal walk-in shower for seniors must combine safety, durability, and a welcoming aesthetic that lends a comfortable and familiar feel to the residence. These goals are what drove the design of the S6336TA, our ADA-compliant 5’ roll-in shower with a simulated tile pattern embedded into the surface of the shower walls.

Let’s take a closer look. 


This one-piece roll-in shower stall with simulated tile is built solid, with two layers of our proprietary blend of fiberglass-reinforced composite (hand-rolled!), an intermediate layer of polyester spray core, and an unsaturated polyester gel coat finish.

  • 63″ x 36″ exterior footprint
  • Anti-slip floor
  • Built-in reinforcement to support ADA-compliant grab bars and seat
  • 1 ½”, 1”, or 1⁄4” no-recess barrier-free threshold height
  • Strength-tested bottom plate
  • A weight of approximately 140 pounds
  • 30-year limited warranty
  • Meets ADA requirements

Not only is the unit compliant with all major accessibility codes, but the stylish tile design makes it an aesthetically pleasing and practical walk-in shower for elderly residents. The 12-inch x 24-inch simulated tile offers a combination of class and comfort, while our reinforced bottom plate — the best in the industry — will ensure this durable shower stands the test of time.

Compliant with ADA and All Major Accessibility Codes

Safety is paramount in a shower for elderly users, which is why this shower meets all requirements for ADA, the Universal Plumbing Code, IAPMO, ANSI, California Title 24, and the Washington Administrative Code. The no-threshold, “roll-in” design provides full accessibility for users with limited mobility and accommodates the installation of ADA-compliant grab bars and seats with full-height reinforcement on all of the shower walls. 

Note that both pre-and-post install of accessories is possible at the factory, during installation, or at a later date — whatever works best for your project. Consider grab bars and folding seats for the ultimate in accessibility for this ADA-compliant fiberglass shower. 

Fast, Convenient Installation & Legendary Durability

The celebrated EverFab bottom plate is pre-leveled and diamond cut for absolute precision and simplicity during a mortarless installation with no need for additional supporting legs or structures. This one-piece composite is carefully designed to address the most common failure point in shower construction — the floor! Our bottom plate is laminated directly to the shower to eliminate the risk of the shower bottom breaking, distorting, or degrading over time. It features multiple floor touchpoints to promote balance, and it’s constructed using the same durable materials that we use in all of our fiberglass shower stalls. 

Class & Sophistication in a Shower For Elderly Users

The 12-inch x 24-inch simulated tile texture offers a combination of class and comfort that is rarely found in ADA-accessible one-piece fiberglass shower stalls. Say goodbye to plain shower stalls that look clinical and bare, better located in a hospital than a home. This stunning shower brings the familiar feel of the residential tile bathroom into a durable and ADA-compliant unit that will last for years to come. Your residents and users will feel right at home with the convenient barrierless walk-in entry and the attractive tile finish.

This may be the best ADA walk-in shower for senior residents, but it’s far from the only option that may suit the specific needs of your project. Explore all of our ADA products for more world-class ADA-compliant shower designs!
