Looking for one shower seat that can do it all? You’ve found the answer.

Ruggedly built and sized for any need, MAXBench is the most durable, versatile shower seat available, and with a weight load rating of 1,000 lbs., it has no rival for carrying capacity.

Like all ARC shower seats, MAXBench is hinged, allowing you to swing it against a wall when you want more space to stand or maneuver in the shower. The heavy-gauge stainless steel leg structure conveniently follows in parallel with the seat as it is folded and unfolded.

Independent polypropylene slats provide a slightly flexible, forgiving seat, and transferring onto the seat is eased due to the smooth surface (which also makes cleaning fast and easy). The seat’s extra width and depth improve balance and comfort while bathing.

This unit is built to handle big needs, and to do that it requires a stout wall and a strong floor structure for support. Be sure to securely install strong blocking in the wall to which you attach the seat.
