UK Company Invents The World's First Lifting Shower Doors

Impey Showers, the UK’s leading wetroom brand and pioneers of the level access wetroom, has revealed the latest technology in showering for those with mobility issues.


The company’s innovative Impey Freedom air assisted doors incorporate a unique air assisted spring mechanism that lifts the doors clear off the ground at the press of a lever. This helps to prevent the floor seal dragging, prolonging the life of the seal and making operation as easy as possible.


The door can be secured in position by gently pressing down on the handgrip and the specially designed floor seal creates a completely watertight seal.


The doors are strong and have lightweight powder coated frame as well as anti-shatter PETG panels.


Other benefits of Impey Freedom doors are that they are durable and covered by a lifetime guarantee; plus the spring mechanism is maintenance free.


Impey Showers’ technical manager, Shaun Hunt, said: “Opening and closing conventional shower doors can be difficult as the rubber floor seal can drag and wear badly.  Unless the door is manually lifted clear of the floor some users may experience difficulty, especially those in a wheelchair, the frail and the elderly. We wanted to create a product that overcomes this obstacle to provide easier showering for those with restricted mobility and we’re delighted with the result.”
