How Teak improves safety? And help prevent accidents
Did you know? 200,000 non-fatal bathroom injuries are recorded in the US every year, with 81% of them being slips and falls? Predominantly an issue facing the elderly, slips and falls can happen in the shower to people of all ages, including children.
Teak shower benches and shower tiles look elegant and contribute to a Zen-like atmosphere, but it’s important to remember that they also help ensure safety in the bathroom.
Whether a mobility issue, a health issue or as a preventative measure to slippery when wet shower bases, teak shower tiles are the way to go.
For maximum safety, they can be coupled with an ADA compliant teak shower bench (such as ARB Teak's), a valued bathroom aid for those weak from illness or fatigue.
Teak shower tiles are as essential to any shower project as the choice of shower head!
My mother has been using both a teak shower bench and shower mat for years due to advanced Alzheimer's. I can personally attest that this has greatly contributed to both her comfort and safety—as well as my own peace of mind. – Satisfied customer
Additionally, teak’s natural oils keep the shower flooring and benches splinter free, most welcomed for exposed skin in the shower!
