Keeps water from running out of your roll in or barrier free shower stall. Stands 1.25 inches but collapses to just 0.25 inches when stepped on or rolled over.
Health workers appreciate the extra safety provided by our shower water retainer. Safety is increased by retaining water in the shower areas to keep the rest of the area dry preventing slips. Roll in, barrier free, curbless shower stalls all can benefit from using our collapsible shower water retainer dam.
To install the retainer dam simply trim the strip to fit, remove the backing from the self adhesive strips, and apply in place directly below the shower curtain rod. It can be cut to your measurements or shipped in a bulk roll for multiple jobs.
The water retainer dam is made of a high density memory foam that returns to it’s original shape after it has been rolled or stepped on. It’s unique fence-like shape catches the bottom of the shower curtain to prevent it from blowing out over the water dam.
To ensure the water dam is able to catch your shower curtain you can use our extra long shower rings to easily lower your shower curtain to the proper height. Also, our shower curtain kits seal the curtain edges to either side of your accessible shower providing even greater curtain control.
We suggest using white silicone caulking to either caulk the dam to the shower wall or fill in the cavity at the end of the dam with the caulk.
Our rubber dams were build to last and the adhesive is bonded to the base of the dam. We would expect 12 -15 years however you may have to apply additional adhesive at sometime during the lifetime of the rubber.
Some tile sealer products can effect a good bond or a section can be caught and breaks its seal – exterior construction adhesive such as Liquid Nail or PL 2000 which is found in most hardware stores.
The lip should be facing the drain inside the shower unit.
