Shower Heights | Clearances

Showers Heights and Clearances are established based on shower safety, comfort, and usability. Accommodating various user postures and movements, shower clearances consider a range of body types, ages, and skills in the placement of shower controls, grab bars, and shower heads.

Shower heads are located at a standard height of 80” (203 cm), but can be set at a minimum height of 72” (183 cm) if desired. Shower controls should be placed at a height 40”-50” (102-127 cm) above the shower floor and out of direct line of the water path to avoid being caught in extremely cold or hot water when operating. For safety, horizontal shower grab bars should be installed 33”-36” (84-91 cm) above the floor. Shower sizes vary considerably based on the floor plan, but comfortable minimal showers are commonly 42” x 36” (107 cm x 91 cm) with the flexibility to incorporate a (12” | 31 cm) seat. Shower ceilings can vary in height from 84”-120” (213-305 cm) above the floor.

Shower heads are overhead bath fixtures that direct the flow of water through perforated nozzles. Paired with water catching bathing fixtures such as the shower pan or collecting fixtures such as the bathtub, shower heads work in conjunction with valves to control the temperature and flow of water.
