Drive Splash Defense - Transfer Bench with Curtain Guard Protection has a special "U" shape cut out that allows the shower curtain and liner to be closed, even with the tub transfer bench in place. The special slot leaves space for the shower curtain and helps keep water from spilling onto the floor so there are less fall risks and mess. It also allows for the person using the bench to shower with the shower curtain closed for added privacy. The bench is designed so it is reversible, it can accommodate a variety of bathtubs. The height adjusts in 1/2" increments and it has dual column extension legs which means that each leg can be adjusted as needed. If the tub is higher than the floor, the legs can be independently adjusted. The tub transfer bench is designed to be flexible so it can work in different types of bathtubs. The assembly of the back, legs, and arm are tool-free and the bench has a weight capacity of 400 lbs. The A-frame construction makes the tub transfer bench stable. The transfer bench is not padded.
