Liberty Caregiver Doors are one of the more unique solutions to water management in the shower zone for those with special needs and potentially a key benefit if a caregiver is involved with the showering experience.
The Liberty Caregiver Door system allows people with special needs easy entry and exit in the shower zone but offers privacy during the showering experience. This independence gives the consumer a sense of control and self-respect during this private process.
If a caregiver is introduced to the equation, our caregiver doors still provide privacy to the consumer. Ideally, it also shields the caregiver from potential misdirected spray patterns of shower heads. (We always highly recommend hand held showers for more control) As we “Age in Place” in our homes this component of the bathroom is vital as we transition to some assisted care in the home.
Bi-fold Alcove Doors
The bi-fold alcove doors swing 180 degrees, allowing the doors to open “in” or open “out” depending on what works for you in the shower zone. The bi-fold doors are equipped with a rise and fall hinge system which lifts the door slightly off the floor when opening for less drag. Conversely as the door is shut the door squeezes to the floor offering a positive lock for the rubber floor seal, damming the water in the shower.
Liberty Caregiver Doors are made of a strong, lightweight aluminum frame with white powder coating or a polished finish, gray handles, trim, flexible floor seals, plus semi-transparent anti-shatter PETG panels (PETG is a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family).
Multi- Functional Purposes
Our Liberty Caregiver Doors work with all wet rooms or shower trays since we have a unique fixing system in every box that allows you to adapt to all installations. Our standard size fits in alcoves from 57 ½” to 59″. Please contact us for information about other sizes and corner configurations.
Liberty Caregiver Doors are often functionally accented by shower curtains for more privacy to the consumer and less misdirected water onto the caregiver. Shower curtains in conjunction with Care Giver Doors also prevent water spillover onto the bathing floor.
