Elevation Change in barrier Free Shower - Do you have a slight elevation change at the shower entrance? It appears to be so or maybe it's just a shadow.

Here you can see some steel tubing on a project we are building right now in Vancouver. The bench will appear to float off the wall and not touch either side.

This is 2" steel tubing stock. I will need to finish the bench so it can be tiled or clad in stone and the enter support will be waterproofed with Mapei's Aqua Defence - one of my favourite waterproofing systems.

The connection point from the bench to the wall should offer up some flexibility and a product called Mapeband will be used for this.

If designing a shower as a steam shower different materials would be needed and this bench could easily be water and vapour proofed with products from Noble Company (Noble Seal TS and Noble Sealant 150).

The play by play for this bench's construction I will outline on my blog site.

Frosted glass panel - Is the frosted panel next to the toilet fixed or is it part of a pocket door? The hole appears to be there to be used as a handle.
