Kingfisher® Bath and Shower Board
Getting in and out of the bath can be quite a balancing act for any of us. However, by choosing a Kingfisher® Bath Shower Board, you will gain the confidence to sit over your bath to wash, or get down into the bath to stretch out and soak. Being able to sit can greatly reduce your chance of slipping over; as a result, you will be able to enjoy bath time safely and easily again with our Kingfisher® bath shower board.
The bath seat is for use on top of the bath for bathing in comfort. If you have an over bath shower, you can simply sit on it to take a shower, avoiding having to stand up for a long period.
Here are the key features:
- Easy to assemble and fit, the Kingfisher® white bath board gives a secure fix that won’t slip
- Width adjustable to fit most baths, 65.5cm to 70.5cm (26.25″ to 28.25″) wide
- Strong comfortable and slip resistant with optional safety handle, added stability when transferring and while seated
- Maximum weight capacity 200kg/31stone
- Reinforced plastic construction will not rust or erode in water
- Ideal if you cannot stand for long or want to sit and relax whilst showering. Sturdy, safe bathing aid

What else should I know about the bath board?
Easy to install and maintain. Our Kingfisher® bath shower board can be easily positioned to sit securely across the top of your bath. You will then be able to sit and lift your legs over into the bath, instead of stepping in.
The bath board seat is for use by the elderly or less mobile. If you are no longer able to safely climb in/out of the bath, you have reduced mobility or reduced strength to safely transfer, and you have the ability to sit unsupported/unaided. Because of this the bath board is not suitable for users who are unable to sit without support.
Key Safety Points:
This bath board is not suitable for a corner bath.
It is not recommended that it be fitted where there is an overlap or under hang of more than 25mm.
Ensure you do a visual check that the internal bath width does not exceed the safety guide mark on both ends of the board before continuing with use.
You might find our leg lifter useful if you need additional help lifting your legs into the bath.
If you would prefer your bath board with a handle, please choose ‘yes’ on the drop down menu above.
You can also use it to transfer safely down into the bath, or in conjunction with a bath seat.
