Trusted in Homes and Hospitals
Health workers appreciate the extra safety provided by our shower water retainer. Safety is increased by retaining water in the shower areas to keep the rest of the area dry preventing slips. Roll in, barrier free, curbless shower stalls all can benefit from using our collapsible shower water retainer dam.
Easy to Install
To install the retainer dam simply trim the strip to fit, remove the backing from the self adhesive strips, and apply in place directly below the shower curtain rod. It can be cut to your measurements or shipped in a bulk roll for multiple jobs.
To ensure the water dam is able to catch your shower curtain you can use our extra long shower rings to easily lower your shower curtain to the proper height. Also, the shower curtain kits seals the curtain edges to either side of your accessible shower providing even greater curtain control.

recommend using an exterior construction adhesive such as
Liquid Nail or PL 2000 which is found in most hardware stores.

How to make a curve or right angle with a shower water dam?
You can make a series of relief cuts to allow for an overall slight curve when attaching the water dam to the shower unit. In some cases, a home owner may need to make a right turn with the water dam. This is done by cutting out a small triangle shape on the one side of the water dam base that does not have the vertical loop. By cutting out the triangle in the base, this allows for a right angle turn without cutting through the vertical loop.
