Impey Showers re-engineers the shower seat


Wetroom specialist Impey Showers has revealed an incredibly stylish and revolutionary new shower seat and bench.

Shower seats are essential for those with mobility issues but traditional shower seats are very clinical in appearance, bulky, create trip hazards, act as dirt traps and can damage floors.

Impey’s SlimFold shower seat is stylish, safe and functional, bears weight of up to 40 stone and has a profile of just 111mm when folded. The Slimfold bench has a profile of 55mm. The thin profile enables the shower door to fold fully inwards without colliding with the seat.

Neil Whitehead, interim marketing at Impey Showers, said: “We firmly believed that existing shower seat design needed to be evolved and improved to provide the healthcare market with an exciting, aspirational and safe product.”

Impey 2The new SlimFold is available in 10 colours and ensures maximum strength, support and durability. The products include a double curvature wall mount, cross bracing support and triangular structure which can support a weight of up to 300kg (40 stone).

SlimFold has an RRP of £175 (plus VAT) and can be fitted from heights of 417mm which ensures safe transfer between standing and sitting or from a wheelchair. There is no maximum height restriction.

The Impey SlimFold is the latest in Impey’s range of innovative wetroom products that encourage independent living. The product is made from polyethelene which is ‘warm to the touch’, semi flexible, comfortable and non-abrasive. The product is unique to Impey Showers.
