All of our Acrylic tubs come with Walk-In Tub Extension Panels. These Panels go on the ends of the tub and help to hide all the plumbing and mechanics inside. Furthermore, it is especially useful for bathtubs in corner or freestanding installations because it allows for a nice white finish all around.
Also, access panels can be easily taken off or put back on to allow for easier access to the plumbing and mechanics as well as to make it easier to move the bathtub during installation. Lastly, the extension panels are an optional feature that fit at the ends of bathtubs so that they can fit into longer alcoves. To wrap things up, these panels make the Ella Walk-In Bathtubs fit in almost any space, no matter the bathroom!

The Function of Walk-In Tub Extension Panels
Moving on, access & extension panels help to hide all of the plumbing and mechanics inside the bathtub. For example, all of our Ella Acrylic tub come with one access panel for your corner installation bathtubs. Next, you have the option to get a second access panel and extension panels as an add-on. Panels can be added in a case where you might want a freestanding bathtub, or if you have a longer alcove and need the extension to fit the bathtub in nicely.
Finally, the panels can be easily removed during installation to allow for greater access to the mechanics and for an easier grip while moving. All one has to do is take out the screws and washers at the bottom(as shown in the diagram) and slide the panel off of the brackets. Once the installation is finished you can slide the panel back onto the brackets and screw them back into place. The screws even come with white caps so you have a nice smooth white finish with no eyesores. Access and Extension panels give you the option to put your bathtub anywhere without any extra hassle.
