A: The TubcuT® is an adaptive tub conversion. In about half a day it creates easier, step-thru access in the front of any existing fiberglass, acrylic, steel or cast iron bathtub.
The TubcuT® opening is made with one-half inch thick panels that are shaped right on the job-site for a custom fit. The panels become structurally part of the tub with our strong bonding process. The panels are made of a durable material that is easy to clean. And the tub color is matched perfectly to the panel’s edge for a seamless look. Once installed, the bathtub can only be used as a shower, since there is no door.
A: Our competitors use plastic caps or one-piece inserts. Those products are typically attached to the tub with caulk only. And since they are pre-formed, caps have a fixed width and a fixed depth of only nine inches or so. That means if your tub is nineteen inches tall, your step-up will still be ten inches.
Our product can reach to the bottom of the deepest tub, and can be made as wide or narrow as needed for the situation. Even soaking tubs, whirlpools, decked-mounted and tiled-in tubs are no problem.
A: Yes if The TubcuT® is no longer needed, it can be easily RESTORED. Saving the tub’s cut-out section can preserve the option to restore the tub to its original condition. Most caps or one-piece inserts don’t allow your original tub to be restored.
A: It only takes about half a day to do, and you can use your tub 24 hours later. It is not a messy process, and the only reason you’ll know we were there is because you now have easier access to your tub.
The TubcuT® is a very practical solution to making your bathtub more accessible and increasing your independence. It’s a more affordable option than the impractical “spa” tubs, which have an average installation cost of $8,000 and limits your use of your bathroom for up to 3 days. With a TubcuT®, we are in and out in just a few hours and leave no mess behind!
