The Erie Walk-in Tub is a Freestanding tub that allows the care-giver 360-degree access to the bather. One of the main unique features of the Erie is there are two choices for placement of valve placement, either on the side or front of this particular commercial Rane Tub. Our Rane specialists are honored to work with you to help you make an educated choice for the best Rane Tubs for your facility. Rane makes all their tubs in America in their leading-edge complex in Sparta, Tennessee. The Rane family were pioneers in the Walk-in tubs for healthcare facilities and we remain at the head of the field today with our innovative designs inspired by over three decades of working with therapists and healthcare workers to create the safest, most accessible, most comfortable, and most stylish bathing solutions available for healthcare facilities. With the high-risk factor for injury to residents and care-givers while bathing, we always keep safety as our number one goal, as we’re sure you do as well. Rane wants to be your bathing solution.
Unique Features of the RK12E Erie
The Erie is a freestanding Walk-in Commercial Tub that offers caregivers unobstructed access to your residents while bathing. With its wide-open doorway and low threshold, it offers safe and easy access for mobile residents and those who need extra help with transfers or lifts. Check out the versatility of the Erie with two choices of placement of valves- either on the side or front of the tub. The door of the Erie Walk-in Tub sports our exclusive KeyLock™ mechanism which guards against leaks; and comes with a secondary door lock to prevent accidental opening while in use. The contoured seating was designed to fit human anatomy in a slightly-reclined position so the bather can lay back to enjoy a relaxing bath. The anti-scald mixing valve and digital thermometer keeps water at a safe level. The handheld wand can be used as the Erie quickly fills to 48 gallons in three minutes. This reduces the “chill factor.”
Optional Features of the RK12E Erie
The Erie will make your bathing area look like a private spa. Take it to the next level and add the CleanRane Air Spa System to provide the therapeutic hydro-massage of hundreds of warm bubbles soothing aches and pains, relaxing the body and calming the mind. Keep your residents, their families and your staff safe and happy with a Rane Tub for your healthcare facility.
CleanRane™ Air Spa System
CleanRane™ Air Spa System enhances the therapeutic and relaxing effects of bathing and provides a pleasant experience for the resident. Hydromassage provides millions of preheated air bubbles in the water which increases stimulation of peripheral blood circulation, reduces pain and inflammation in the joints, gently massages away dirt, and induces deeper relaxation.
Door Hinge Option
The RG9 Victoria and RJ15 Caribbean are both side-entry bathing systems, accessible through a swinging door located on the side of the tub. These bathing systems have the option of a left hand or right hand door swing. The plumbing package of the bathtub always follows the door hinge (or hand). When choosing between left-hand or right hand, you must consider the layout of your bathroom and toilet setup.
Autofill is a timesaving feature available on the RR7-II Atlantic and the RS8 Geneva that allows caregivers to fill the tub to a preset level while completing other tasks or collecting the resident. With the push of a button, the tub fills to a preset level (24 gallons for the RR7-II and 64 gallons for the RS8 models), eliminating waiting/observation time.
Front Plumbing Configuration
Plumbing hookups are at the end of the tub where the control panel is located.
Side Plumbing Configuration
Plumbing hookups are on the side of the tub opposite of the door.
Island Plumbing Configuration
Allows for 360 ° unobstructed access for the caregiver, with no visible hoses or cords. (The plumbing hookups are under the tub).
The RR7-II Atlantic has optional battery backup. This enables use of the tilting function in the event of a power outage. (This is a standard feature on the Height Adjustable model of the RS8 Geneva.)
Rane Disinfectant Solution
Rane’s lemon-scented is effective against H1N1 Influenza A virus, TB, MRSA, Hepatitis B/C, VISA, VRE, HIV-1, and pathogenic fungi.
