The Algonquin

If you’re looking for a roomy and versatile walk-in tub, The Algonquin is the one for you! This top-of-the-line model is our most popular for a reason – measuring 53″ long and 30″ wide, with a height of 40″, it offers plenty of space for a comfortable and relaxing bathing experience. In addition to this, it also has an interior space that’s 25″ wide, so you’ll have plenty of room to stretch out and relax. But what really sets The Algonquin apart is its unique design. With an inward opening door, getting in and out of the tub has never been easier. And with a 7″ extension that brings the total length to 60″, it’s the perfect replacement for most standard bathtubs.
