Disabled seats for showers in commercial washrooms

Disabled shower seats are an extremely useful aid in disabled bath, shower, and wetroom areas as they offer users a safe place to sit whilst using a shower. Aside from the improved safety they offer through their support, they give users greater independence as they can comfortably use the facilities themselves.

We supply products in stainless steel, aluminium or ABS plastic, so no matter what style bathroom you have, we’ve got a solution for you. Some of our shower seat options have a padded seat for extra comfort, whilst some also have fold-down legs for added support.

Whether you’re looking for wall-mounted shower seats or folding shower chairs, all of our shower seats for disabled users are designed to be wall-mounted and can be used for changing rooms, communal shower areas, individual shower rooms and other disabled facilities.

Types of disabled shower seats we offer


  • Folding shower seats - designed to be fixed to your wall, these seats are height adjustable and ideal for smaller shower areas as they can easily be folded away when not in use. 

  • Padded shower seats - these chairs offer additional comfort to users and we even offer premium padded shower chairs to offer a more deluxe feel.

  • Contemporary seats - you won’t have to compromise on style as these have a sleek, slimline appearance which makes them ideal for minimalist and modern bathrooms.

  • Shower chairs with arms and legs - these offer extra support with adjustable features, so users feel even more safe and secure.

  • Extra wide shower chairs - this type of seat is ideal for bariatric users who require additional space to sit comfortably.

We also supply a range of disabled washroom accessories, such as back support, RADAR locks and grab rails, so you can get everything you need for your shower room in one place.

If you can’t find the product you’re looking for, or have any questions about our shower seats, please do not hesitate to contact us - a member of our friendly sales team will be happy to help. In the meantime, why not get inspired by some of our recent washroom refurbishment projects? 




What is a shower seat?


A shower seat is a waterproof chair which is designed to fit in a shower so that people with disabilities or mobility issues can shower comfortably with the support they need as they will be able to wash themselves whilst seated.


How high should a shower seat be?


Typically, it’s recommended that disabled shower seats are installed between 17 and 19 inches above the bathroom floor so that they’re easily accessible for those who need them.


How to install a shower seat


We always recommend hiring a professional to carry out work in your washroom, however, disabled shower chairs are easy to install so it should be a reasonably quick process. They are typically installed by following these steps:


  1. Cleaning the area you’ll be installing the seat.

  2. Finding the right position - in terms of a suitable position, disabled shower seats usually sit 450 to 550 mm above the shower tray. You can find height adjustable shower seat options too so different users can adjust the chair depending on their needs.

  3. Marking the location of where the seat will be attached (you can use a tape measure and soap pen which can be washed away).

  4. Drilling holes for the wall mountings, taking care not to apply too much pressure. Please note that it may be necessary to drill into concrete or other materials using a special drilling technique.

  5. Fastening wall mountings to the wall.

  6. Attaching the frame of the shower seat to the wall mountings, ensuring that the frame is securely attached.

  7. Attaching the seat to the frame with screws using a screwdriver.

  8. Checking the seat is firmly attached to the wall and safe for use.


Here at Commercial Washrooms, we also offer bathroom refurbishment services, so we can both supply and fit our products to bring your washroom project to life! 


How wide should a shower seat be?


The correct size of your shower seats, stools or benches will ultimately depend on the proportions of the user, as well as the amount of space available to you in your shower enclosure. That said, standard shower seat sizes are generally at least 14 inches in width.


What are the benefits of a shower chair? 


Here’s how installing shower chairs in your facilities can benefit both your business and users:


  • They give users more independence - those with disabilities or mobility issues will have more privacy when showering as they will be better able to support themselves whilst using the facility.

  • They’re easy to install (though we do recommend that you hire a professional to carry out the work).

  • They improve safety in your washroom, helping to prevent accidents such as slips.

  • They’reavailable in a variety of styles and finishes so you can find an option to suit your bathroom.

  • They have safe and practical designs - many products have extra safety features such as rubber feet to prevent slips and anti-bacterial properties to maintain good hygiene.


How do I choose disabled seats for showers?


Choosing the right shower seats for disabled users can be tricky, which is why we’ve listed a few considerations for you to make before making a purchase:


  • How much available space do you have? If you have a small shower area, you can find compact shower chairs and folding shower seats which are more space efficient.

  • What style of chair will suit your washroom? You can find chairs in a number of different colours and finishes so there should be an option that suits the aesthetic of your facilities. From contemporary slimline seats to more traditional and robust shower chairs, there’s something for every bathroom.

  • Do you require any extra features or accessories? Some shower seats will have additional features and aids such as padding (such as this premium black padded wall mounted shower seat with legs) which will improve the level of comfort of the seat or legs for additional support. 

  • What is the shower seat’s weight capacity? You’ll want to check the weight limit and size of the chair before purchasing so that users can enjoy maximum comfort whilst staying safe.

  • Does the shower chair need to be extra wide to accommodate bariatric users?

  • What’s your budget? This will inevitably impact your decision, but you’ll be pleased to know that we offer shower seats at a range of prices to suit all budgets. 


Who needs a shower seat?


Disabled seats for showers are useful aids for people with disabilities, mobility issues and the elderly who may struggle to stand for an extended period of time. They are used in both domestic and commercial bathrooms, so, whether you’re looking for a seat in your own bath/shower or looking to make your facilities more accessible, shower chairs, stools and seats will give users the support they need.
