Delta™ Transfer Bathtub Wins 2011 ADEX Award

October 03, 2011

Taylor, Mich. (October 3, 2011) - Masco Bath™, a division of Masco Corporation, and producer of showers, tub showers, soaking tubs, air tubs, whirlpools and more, was honored with a 2011 Silver ADEX Award for its 60-by 32-inch Delta Transfer Bathtub. ADEX (Award for Design Excellence) is the largest and most prestigious awards program for the design of furniture, fixtures and finishes marketed to the design trade. The Transfer Bathtub was selected for this award by a panel of industry professionals and will be recognized with other winners in an upcoming issue of Design Journal.

Part of the Universal Design Bathing System product line, the 60-inch Delta Transfer Bathtub offers a comfortable, accessible bathing experience for all users.

Several innovative features are integrated into the Transfer Bathtub to enhance its safety and accessibility. A built-in bench enables bathers to sit at a comfortable height, making it easier to get in and out. The bench can be flipped up or removed completely, making it possible to use the tub as a conventional bath or shower.

Additionally, ergonomic handles positioned on the sides of the tub provide stability and assistance while entering and exiting. A backrest molded into the tub basin adds comfort for bathers, and a bump-out area on the edge of the tub allows for easy transfer in and out, while providing an area for caregivers to sit.
