Elevate and FreeGlide half-height shower doors

Designed, developed and manufactured by Impey in the UK, these new shower door ranges provide outstanding innovative features for both user and carer.

They also meet the needs of professionals, from Occupational Therapists specifying accessible bathroom solutions for private and sheltered homes to Technical Officers looking for quality and affordability when pricing for care homes and residential new builds.

Following an extensive redesign, they incorporate features that make them particularly suitable for care environments and users with a range of impairments.

Key benefits of the new Elevate and FreeGlide doors

• for people with arthritis, the doors can be operated with minimal grip
• visually impaired users benefit from the contrasting colour schemes which provide optimum visibility
• those with dementia find the non-reflective door panels calming; reflections can be very disturbing
• the unique market-leading wipe clean surface layer with no dirt traps provides for excellent infection control
• safety is paramount; the folding door hinges are fully enclosed, eliminating any risk of finger trapping
• PETG panels won’t shatter in the unfortunate event that a user falls against them
• carers and users both benefit from smooth, quick and easy-to-open mechanisms
