The Orca’s lowering and lifting motion is controlled by a simple to use lightweight ergonomic floating handset that has a powerful integral rechargeable lightweight battery, raised profile coloured buttons and an emergency stop feature.
The Orca’s smooth surface and water drainage design make it is easy to clean and it has an impressive user weight limit of 140kg (22stone).
Installation and Disassembly
The Orca comes in two parts. The base section fits securely to the bottom of the bath using large oyster suction cups that give exceptional stability and safety even to steeply curved and textured baths. The backrest section simply locks into the bottom section.
The backrest can be folded down and fits neatly into the base section allowing for easy removal, transport or storage.
