The bathroom is the most dangerous place in your home when accessibility becomes an issue. One way your bathtub can pose a potential threat is due to water temperature shock.
Most people do not think about cold water shock or hot water scalding as a major source of injury while bathing. However, it is one of the most common forms of bathroom injury, second to falls. Traditional baths do not protect the user from this possible injury. But Bentley Baths offers “Shock and Scald” protection through the use of a range of customer appropriate Thermostatic Mixing Valves.
These valves maintain and limit the blending of cold and hot water to a desired, predetermined temperature. They ensure you never receive water temperatures that could injure you. Temperatures can be adjusted for safety and comfort and for maximum health benefits when using hydrotherapy. The bather can bathe comfortably knowing that the temperature will never flow above the preset maximum. Bentley Baths strongly recommend installing a “true” Thermostatic Mixing Valve for all residential installations, and we require it for commercial installations, such as assisted living centers and nursing homes.
Water temperature is just one safety concern in your bathroom. If you’ve noticed uncomfortable temperature changes, Bentley Baths team can make your bathroom safer.
