    These sorts are not on a plaster wall. The walls are reinforced & long screws are used to secure them to the wall & the batons or uprights.

    I used to have a small shower with a pivot door which made it impossible to fit in a chair/stool. In the end I got a corner stool which allowed the door to open and close and I could use it. Many of the catalogues give the footprint so you could measure up before buying.
    Would that be an option?

    Yes, Beau, & you can get free-standing shower seats too for disabled people, of many sizes. I do not just mean those shower chairs with huge wheels on, with brakes that are too hard to put on & off. Social Services should discuss this with you actually. It is about meeting your needs.

    Hi, I am glad to report that the problem has been solved!! I have obtained a three legged shower corner seat with adjustable legs. I have been able to adjust the 'rear' leg to allow the seat to be right in the corner, thus taking up much less room in the shower. It is free standing so I have not been subjected to reinforcing the wall etc. Many thanks for your comments and advice. S.

    Hi all, Many thanks for the interest and comments. I now have a three legged stand alone shower stool which seems to 'do the job'!! Regards, S.

    Thank god you sorted that out. A flip up stool attached to any framework would have been an accident in the making. Let's hope the shower tray doesn't crack where the stand alone stool feet touch it.

    What a shower!
