leak proof. Bliss Tubs guarantees the door seal.

is better — acrylic or fiberglass?
Tub Body Construction: Acrylic
walk-in tubs now on the market are generally vacuum-formed acrylic
reinforced with fiberglass backing. Through the process of vacuum
forming a single flat sheet of acrylic is heated and stretched over a
waxed mold. Due to the greater size of walk-in bathtubs as compared to
standard bathtubs, the acrylic sheet must stretch much further than
normal. This stretching causes the walls and corners to become
extremely thin and fragile, hence the need for a more solid fiberglass
backing. Bliss Tubs has eliminated the need for cheap and fragile
acrylic by producing a 100% fiberglass body, which is further
reinforced in the seat, floor and tub walls for far superior strength
Tub Finish: Acrylic
often appears plastic-like and low in quality whereas our gel coat
finish has a soft and warm sheen that is pleasant to the eyes.
Unfortunately, damage can occur for unforeseeable reasons and is in all
likelihood unavoidable. In fact, acrylic and gel coat products are
equally susceptible to surface scratching and require non-abrasive
cleaners. However, damage to the thin surface of an acrylic tub is
almost impossible to repair and color match, and attempts at repair can
often lead to further damage. The triple-coated gel coat finish applied
to every Bliss walk-in tub is meticulously and thickly applied and then
buffed to a perfect sheen. If a scratch, ding or worse should ever
occur to the fiberglass finish, Bliss Tub's gel coat experts can
provide a simple color-matched repair kit with thorough instructions on
filling, sanding and buffing any blemish away. The whole repair process
only takes about a day including dry time for any qualified handyman.
