Frequently Asked Questions



How Does the Water Tight Door Work?

The access tub's water tight door seal system forms a hydrostatic seal when compressed by latching the door. Additionally, the weight of water inside the tub further compresses the door seal making it completely leak proof. Access tubs guarantees the door seal for life.

Do Access Tubs have a safety certification?

Yes! Access is one of the only walk-in tub companies that have IAMPO, ETL, UL,and CSA safety ratings and certifications. If your installer or county inspector requires proof of certification prior to purchase we are happy to provide you with documentation.

Can Access Tubs also be used as a shower?
