Clever and Comfortable
If you've ever leaned or knelt against a tub/shower door track while bathing a baby, washing a pet, or scrubbing the tub, you're likely all too familiar with the painful divots and grooves the track leaves on your arms or legs. Well, we've got news for you: The innovative minds at Sterling have come up with a solution to this universally uncomfortable issue, introducing a product that's earned them a coveted spot on the This Old House Top 100 Products 2014 list. (It's sure to find a place on your "must-have" list, too.)
Tub and shower doors have their advantages—namely, their attractiveness and ability to contain water inside the tub or shower stall. But dealing with the harsh metal frame is not always a pleasant experience. Sterling's Prevail™ doors with ComforTrack™ technology feature a cushioned threshold, allowing you to kneel, sit, or lean comfortably, making it easy to bathe a child or pet, clean the bathing/showering space, or simply put your feet up while you're soaking in the tub.
Not Just for Bathtubs
It's a good thing ComforTrack™ is also available on shower doors, because few minor injuries can cause pain (or outbursts of profanity) as much as a stubbed toe. ComforTrack's soft and flexible bottom track is ideal for getting in and out of the shower without bruising your digits.
Designed with a low profile for a sleek look, ComforTrack™ has been vigorously tested to ensure it will withstand everyday wear and tear. And the heavy-duty material is resistant to mold and mildew buildup, so your cleaning chores will not only be more comfortable, you'll have fewer of them to do.
