Compact 18" x 16" wall mounted shower seat:
Selected for their quality and durability, our heavy duty wall hung folding shower seats have a weight capacity of 300 pounds and are available in four attractive seat finishes. Mounted on a heavy duty rust proof type 304 stainless steel frame, folding shower seats utilize a self locking mechanism to fold up and secure them against the shower wall when not in use. For safety and durability, we avoid the use of springs that will corrode and eventually wear out. A constant friction, wall mounted bracket guides the U shaped yoke freely up and down, resulting in a low pressure constant spring action to raise and lower the seat. Our seats are maintenance free, light in weight yet heavy on performance!
These wall mounted seats are intended for walk in and roll in showers. For shower / bathtub combinations check out Folding Bathtub Seats.
The seat tops are 18" x 16". Phenolic slats are 3" wide x 1/2" thick. One piece high density polyethylene tops are 1/2" thick. Stainless steel tops are 14 gauge. These folding shower seats have a weight capacity of 300 pounds.

How do I install a wall mounted folding shower seat?
Mounting the seat is not difficult but will require an experienced carpenter or handyman. Experience in light framing, drilling through and installing ceramic tile may be required.
Tools required can include:
Electric drill, masonry bit, punch...
We find the typical shower wall surround to be a 2x4 wood stud frame, covered with gypsum drywall, tile board or plaster lath. The wall finish is typically ceramic tile. These materials alone are not adequate to support the seat unless you can mount into existing wood blocking or studs. You can use a 1/8th-inch masonry bit, drill through the tile grout to determine if wall support is in place.
Adequate wall support is absolutely necessary! Installation of the wall mounted folding shower seat requires wood blocking in a typical stud wall. This is not a problem in new construction. We suggest installing continuous 2 x 12 wood blocking between the studs, starting from the floor plate up to at least 24 inches above the shower floor. Remodeling an existing shower can be more involved. If the shower backs up to an interior wall, consider removing the wallboard and installing the blocking from the backside. If not, it may be required to remove and replace a portion of the existing shower wall tile.
Once the wood blocking is in place and the wall finish has been installed, mounting the folding shower seat is easy. Position the seat at the required height, normally 17-19 inches above the floor. Use a magic marker to mark the flange and wall bracket screw locations. Use a punch and hammer to carefully nick the tile to prevent the drill bit from wondering. Use a masonry bit and drill through the tile. All anchoring hardware must be carefully selected to insure proper installation. Mount your new shower seat. Detailed instructions are included with your purchase.
Good luck with your project. We hope you enjoy the convenience of your new
folding shower seat. If you have questions or need further assistance, please
feel free to contact us.
Phenolic seat tops:
The seats are available with phenolic tops and covered with a smooth, easy to clean, plastic laminate in ivory color or a wood grain finish. Phenolic slats provide superior slip resistance and drainage.
What is phenolic?
Phenolic is a hard, dense moisture resistant material made by applying heat and pressure to layers of cellulose material impregnated with synthetic resin. When heat and pressure are applied to the layers, a chemical reaction (polymerization) transforms the layers into a high-pressure thermosetting industrial laminated plastic.
