Restore independence with Surface Specialists® safety tub conversion. Have your existing porcelain, steel, acrylic or fiberglass bathtub converted into a shower unit at approximately 80% less than the cost of remodeling. The process involves removing a section of the bathtub wall and then re-creating a lower wall height for easier access into and out of the bathtub. For added security, a slip resistant texture may be applied to the bathtub floor and the newly created step.

Below you will find photos of three different procedures Surface Specialists may use for creating step through access on bathtubs. All three procedures may not be available for your individual tub. Please consult your local Surface Specialists technician and after discussing the material your tub is made of and your individual needs for the tub they can provide you the best options for creating walk through access in your existing bathtub.
