How Panel Showers can save on Bathroom Reconstruction Costs

Individual Pivoting Wall Shower - ADA CompliantRemodeling a restroom is never easy.  While users are expecting an upgraded appearance, facility managers are looking for every way possible to keep costs down.  This alone can lead to a mad scramble for fixtures and accessories that will meet requirements on both ends.  The situation is further complicated when organizations decide to build showers into an existing restroom.  Most restrooms already suffer from limited wall and floor space.  Plumbing inside walls is not always cost effective, and many times, not possible.  In these situations, panel showers are the best choice for contractors.  They ship preassembled with all the pipes and valves necessary to individual shower operation.  Because they surface mount to any wall, they are far less expensive to install than group showers that require cutting into the wall and plumbing its interior.


There can be many reasons why an organization would want to upgrade a commercial restroom from a simple bathroom to a combination bathroom/shower room.  In the industrial world, providing employees with a shower facility helps safeguard human health and safety.  Organizations that require their employees to wear uniforms during the work day are starting to install showers in the restrooms to keep uniforms clean and fresh.  Public rest areas along the highway, and public campgrounds, have also begun installing panel showers so that users can clean up and change clothes after walking on trails, swimming in lakes, or simply sweating in the increased summer heat of the last few years.  Many spas, private health clubs, and municipal recreation centers have also started to install showers in order to provide additional amenities to members, guests, and employees.


One of the many advantages offered by individual wall showers is the ease of accessibilityIndividual with which they can be configured.  ADA models exists which feature pivoting shower heads attached to a flexible cord that a wheelchair bound user can easily maneuver by hand.  These units are so convenient that they can be used by everyone.  When remodeling a restroom with limited wall space, many contractors opt to install ADA compliant panel showers that will furnish superior comfort and convenience to all user groups entering the facility.  Further steps can also be taken to make the shower area completely accessible to disabled persons.  Shower seats can be installed with each individual shower unit.  Shower stalls built with partitions can also be fitted with grab bars to provide leverage and maneuverability to wheelchair bound users.


From a budgetary perspective, remodeling a restroom with individual wall showers is also far less costly than installing group showers.  The cost of cutting a large section out of the wall to plumb its interior and to install a recessed mounted shower assembly is something that most organizations would prefer to avoid at all costs.  Surface mounted fixtures and accessories cost less money for remodeling crews to install because they can be mounted much more quickly without damage to the surrounding wall.  Surface mounted panel showers with self-contained plumbing assemblies save even more costs because they eliminate the need to install pipes, valves, and plumbing behind the wall. 


Corner-Mounted Individual Wall ShowerUser privacy can be ensured by installing curved shower rods or shower partitions to create individual shower stalls for users.  Call us for assistance in configuring cost effective stall space in your restroom remodel.
