Bathtub Side Clearances

Bathtub Side Clearances refer to the standards of clear space maintained alongside a bathtub fixture. Functioning as an access zone for climbing into and out of a standard 24” | 60 cm high bathtub, this clear space often varies in width depending on the floor plan designs and restrictions. Bathtub side clearances are recommended to maintain a consistent width of 30” | 76 cm, with comfortable clearances set at around 44” | 112 cm and extremely minimal widths at 22” | 56 cm.
