The Function of Access & Extension Panels
Access & Extension Panels help to hide all of the plumbing and mechanics inside the bathtub. All of our Ella Acrylic Walk In Bathtubs come with one access panel for your corner installation bathtubs. The second access panel and extension panel are optional add-ons. This is for cases where you want a freestanding bathtub installation or if you have longer alcove and need the extension to fit the bathtub in nicely. 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.
