Safety – Independence – Dignity
Staying in one’s own home is important, SAFETY in that home is essential. Maintaining a way to complete daily tasks and functions INDEPENDENTLY, or with a minimal amount of help required, allows one to retain as much DIGNITY as possible for the tasks in the day that have always been private. Tub Cutter! will do its part to help.
A standard tub is 14 – 16 inches high. The Tub Cutter! Conversion reduces the height by approximately 8 – 9 inches, leaving a step of 5 – 7 inches.
The installation process for our tub conversion can be completed in as little as an hour and up to 4 hours depending on the material used to manufacture the tub. Our technicians clean as they go leaving virtually no mess.
Any color you want as long as it’s white. Sorry, white only!
A typical conversion for a fiberglass or steel tub is less than $700.
A regular shower curtain does the trick. You may need to lower the curtain rod to ensure it falls below the opening.
With our optional Quick Door solution, a cut tub can be easily converted into a bathtub in a matter of seconds.
