Don't tear out a bath tub when
you can convert it with TubcuT™
The TubcuT™ is a reversible bath tub modification that allows an existing bath
tub to be converted into a walk-in shower! This affordable alternative converts your existing tub
into a walk-in shower for a fraction of the cost and in a fraction of the time. The TubcuT™ system is
not a cap. It becomes an integral part of the bath tub itself and provides a seamless factory
appearance, is completely reversible, and is backed by a lifetime manufacturer warranty.
HealthLink Development has used the TubcuT™ in Assisted Living and Independent
Senior Housing from Florida to California, and everywhere in-between to stretch limited renovation budgets
by saving our clients time and money. One client utilized the TubcuT™ on an adaptive re-use conversion of
an apartment building to assisted living and reported cost savings in excess of $65,000!
The TubcuT™ is the simple, effective and affordable solution to accessibility problems in the bath at
approximately 80% less than the cost of remodeling. The TubcuT™ process works with your existing tub
whether it is fiberglass, steel, or cast iron. Soaking tubs, whirlpools, deck-mounted, or tiled-in tubs
are all easily accommodated with the TubcuT™. The step-thru opening is handcrafted from high quality
components that are shaped right on the job site and are bonded for a custom fit. This process makes it
possible to match any tub's contour and it can be sized to your specifications making the lowest step
possible and the opening as wide or as narrow as needed. The finishing touch is an airbrushed spray finish
that matches the tub making the cutout a durable and easy to clean structural component of the tub. In one
day, HealthLink can give you the accessibility and independence in the bath that you deserve and your tub
will be ready to use the next morning. Remarkably, the TubcuT™ is also completely reversible. If the TubcuT™
is no longer needed, the cutout can be replaced and your tub restored to its original condition. Finally,
the TubcuT™ is available in widths from 18" to 44" and can also be used with custom glass shower doors if
The benefits of the TubcuT™ include:
- It is reversible! The section of the tub that is removed can be re-installed
in the future.
- It is versatile! The TubcuT™ can be installed in any tub - fiberglass, steel,
and cast iron - with a "factory" finish.
- It is a time saver! The TubcuT™ installs in less than a day.
- It is affordable! The TubcuT™ can be installed for 80% less than the cost of
tearing out a bath tub and replacing it with a walk-in shower.

Don't be fooled or settle for an inferior product! There are inferior tub
conversions and imitators out there. These imposters will cut out a section of the tub and then
cap the opening with a pre-formed cap or insert of a fixed width and a fixed, limited, depth.
Typically, these plastic caps are attached to the tub with caulk only, and they frequently leak.
More importantly, the 'lip' or overhang of the cap can pose a potential tripping hazard especially
with a cut that is often not deep enough for easy clearance. HealthLink never offered this type
of system because these restrictions and potential problems made this method questionable at best.
Additionally, the cap-type systems look like cheap after-market modifications. As a mater of
marketing and "curb appeal", HealthLink has heard from Administrators and Regional Directors that
the finished appearance of the TubcuT™ makes for a better marketing impression of their buildings
since the finished appearance looks like the bath tub came from the factory with a step
Insist on the original TubcuT™ in your facility. With the TubcuT™ system, the cutout becomes an
integral part of the tub with a seamless, factory appearance that is both functional and attractive
as well as being completely reversible.
