Unique features of the RT4 Chesapeake Walk-in Tub
The major difference in the Chesapeake is it is designed to fit in a traditional alcove type setting. You may want to make your facility feel more like a residential home. Residents will enjoy the comfort of stepping into this walk-in tub that fits into a more traditional home setting. The low threshold and wide door allow safe easy access for ambulatory residents as well as those who need extra assistance with a transfer or lift. Rane’s specially designed slightly tilted seating is ergonomically contoured for ultimate comfort while relaxing in bath water that is mixed with an anti-scald valve. The Chesapeake fills quickly at a rate of 15 gallons per minute and the hand wand can be used while filling to reduce the “chill factor” for your residents. The easy-to-operate control panel can be wall-mounted to be used by either the resident or care-giver. Your staff will love the convenient time-saving built-in disinfection system that can sanitize between baths. Rane offers our exclusive KeyLock™ mechanism to ensure against leaks as well as a secondary lock to guard against accidental opening while in use.
Optional Features of the RT4 Chesapeake
Depending on your decor, you have the option to get the Chesapeake in either Sky Blue or Cool Gray. Add an extra level to the bathing experience by getting the CleanRane Air Spa System to hydro-massage your residents with hundreds of warm air bubbles that soothe achy joints and stressed out nerves. Help keep your residents calm and content by offering a relaxing spa like atmosphere while bathing.
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.)
