We’re introducing the flagship Elite, our most popular standard size walk-in tub sporting a modern and sleek look. Designed with your comfort in mind, you’ll be able to relax in a 2” wider seat than the Petite and Deluxe models. Now available with a rejuvenating Hydro + Independent Foot Massage option!
What makes this model stand out from our competitors, are the incredible features and fixtures.
The Ella Elite is constructed from the highest grade of white acrylic, with an easy to clean gloss finish that is reinforced with fiberglass. The acrylic shell is supported by a rust proof stainless steel frame for durability and multiple adjustable leveling legs for easier installation and stronger support.
In addition, this model has an adjustable threshold height option for easier access when entering and exiting the tub. The supporting frame raised on adjustable frame legs allows the drain pipe to be installed above the floor for easier drain connection to the existing house drain. You can also lower the threshold with leveling legs when access to the crawl spaces or basements are available and drains can be recessed below the floor level. Please refer to specific model manuals for more details, talk to our customer support specialists, your contractor or Ella’s Bubbles authorized reseller.
The Elite also features a removable stainless steel door with frosted tempered glass. The stainless steel door adds a modern and sleek look to the tub. With its detachable feature, hard to reach places have never been easier to access and clean.
Furthermore, this model also features a 4-fold shower screen door. This Euro-style screen gives an airy open feeling with the option to push the screen aside quickly and easily. The sturdy construction of 1/8” thick lightweight glass secured in anodized aluminum frames enables smooth door operation with equipped high quality geared hinges strong enough to endure rigorous daily use.
The Elite model has the option to come with a complete shower kit. This modern and beautiful complete shower kit features a chrome column that holds a large overhead rain shower, as well as an adjustable slider that allows you to select the best height to place the handheld showerhead unit. We found a simple solution for you to upgrade your existing shower system, without having to go through a full bathroom renovation. This shower kit replaces the need for a wall-mounted showerhead, allowing you to have a dual shower system that includes a luxurious overhead rain shower and a powerful handheld showerhead. Please note, the 2 showerheads cannot spray simultaneously and for added safety, the shower rail is anchored to the wall with screws. Immerse yourself in a truly relaxing shower experience and enjoy the modern style of this beautifully designed shower column.
