Showers

Showers are bathroom fixtures designed to allow for bathing with sprayed water. Consisting of a showerhead with a nozzle for adjustable water pressure and a floor drain, showers are most commonly paired as fixed wall-mounted elements above a bathtub. Showerheads are also designed as hand-held hoses that can be mounted and unmounted from a wall to allow the user to spray the shower in hard to reach places. Showers are a more efficient use of water for hygienic uses than bathtubs with nearly half the water use on average.

Showers Heights and Clearances are established based on shower safety, comfort, and usability. Accommodating various user postures and movements, shower clearances consider a range of body types, ages, and skills in the placement of shower controls, grab bars, and shower heads. Shower heads are located at a standard height of 80” | 203 cm, but can be set at a minimum height of 72” | 183 cm if desired. Shower controls should be placed at a height 40”-50” | 102-127 cm above the shower floor and out of direct line of the water path to avoid being caught in extremely cold or hot water when operating. For safety, horizontal shower grab bars should be installed 33”-36” | 84-91 cm above the floor. Shower sizes vary considerably based on the floor plan, but comfortable minimal showers are commonly 42” x 36” | 107 cm x 91 cm with the flexibility to incorporate a 12” | 31 cm seat. Shower ceilings can vary in height from 84”-120” | 213-305 cm above the floor.
