Safety, accessibility, and functionality are important when deciding on the bath’s placement 🛁.   Below are some key points to take into account:

  1. Service and Cleaning Access:
    • Accessibility: Ensure that there is sufficient space around the bath for maintenance and cleaning. This includes access to plumbing fixtures, drains, and any electrical components.
    • Clearance: Provide enough room for service personnel to reach the bath without obstruction.
  2. Clearance Between Door and Bath:
    • Door Swing: Consider the swing direction of the bathroom door. Ensure that the bath’s position doesn’t interfere with the door’s movement.
  3. Hoist and Wheelchair Access:
    • Hoist Space: If the bathroom is designed for individuals who require hoists, plan for adequate space around the bath. This ensures smooth transfers.
  4. Underfloor Pipe Work and Cabling:
    • Planning: Before finalizing the bath’s location, verify the position of underfloor pipes (such as water supply and drainage) and electrical cabling. These utilities should not obstruct the bath’s placement.
    • Avoidance: Avoid placing the bath directly over critical pipes or cables. If necessary, reroute them to accommodate the bath’s position.
    • It is important that there is no buried surfaces below the perimeter of the bath as this can affect fixing the bath to the floor for optimum safely
