Rane is dedicated to designing and creating the safest, most accessible Walk-in Tubs available. The RM3 Superior is another way we bring all of our unmatchable experience and knowledge into the development of a Walk-in Tub for your personal home use. Because Rane was a pioneer in providing safe Walk-in Tubs to healthcare facilities, we bring all we’ve learned over thirty years to ensure “no slips, trips or falls” to your home bathing experience. Yet the exquisite design of the Superior Walk-in Tub demonstrates once again how we join safety and elegance. One of the most unique features of the Superior is its innovative door which is cut-out to swing over existing toilets. The Rane RM3 Superior is an excellent choice for people with all degrees of limited mobility and their families.
The Unique Features of the RM3 Superior Walk-in Tub
The Superior Walk-in Tub by Rane offers the shortest of all our thresholds and is small enough to easily fit most bathrooms. One of the most sought-after features is the unique 34.75-inch-wide door with the lower part cut-away so it can swing outward over an existing toilet. This helps to utilize precious floor space to the maximum. The door is available to swing out to the left or to the right depending on your floor space. Rane’s RM3 Superior is American-made in Tennessee at our family owned facility. We take the same great pride in every detail which provides the safest most accessible Walk-in Tubs available. As with each of Rane’s Walk-in Tubs, we offer a “Best in Class” warranty, resulting in low cost ownership. The Superior offers the same Roman Mount Valve Package made from solid brass with a polished chrome finish and hand held wand that gives an elegant look.
Optional Features for the RM3 Superior Walk-in Tub
Safety, Accessibility and quality are standard on all Rane Walk-in Tubs, yet we like to add a few options to add to the enjoyment of your bathing experience. Learn more about these possible options:
CleanRane™ Air Spa System, Whirlpool System, Aromatherapy, Chromatherapy, and extra accessories.
CleanRane™ Air Spa System
The 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.
The heated whirlpool system provide you with an invigorating deep massage to rejuvenate muscles and relieve pain through eight heated, deep massaging water jets strategically placed in your Rane bathtub. Whirlpool is part of the Supreme Package.
Aromatherapy feature releases the aroma of essential oils through a diffuser on the rim of the tub into the ambient air, to enhance psychological and physical well-being. Various oils have varying properties that can lift your mood, energize you, or relax you, depending on your needs. Aromatherapy is part of the Supreme Package.
Our Chromatherapy feature uses multicolored lights positioned in the tub to illuminate the water. Using colors therapeutically is said to foster harmony and well being, with each color corresponding to a unique vibration with its individual speed, wavelength and rhythm. Chromatherapy is part of the Supreme Package.
