# What is a Barrier-Free Shower?

A barrier-free shower allows easy access for individuals with limited mobility due to age, injury or disability. Key design elements include:

– **Walk-in or roll-in access** – no raised curb or barrier needed.

– **Grab bars** installed on at least two walls for stability while transferring.

– **Seating** such as a built-in bench lets the user sit comfortably.

– **Single-lever or lever-style controls** that are easy to operate from a seated position.

– **Hand-held showerhead** provides flexibility for different users’ needs.

– **Non-slip flooring** eliminates tripping hazards and provides traction.

Universal design makes barrier-free showers beneficial for people of all abilities to shower independently and safely without assistance devices.
