Measuring 32” wide and 40” long, the specially designed Front Entry walk-in tub offers bathers easy access to the oversized 24” wide molded seat. Despite this tub’s smaller size, the Front Entry can easily accommodate large body types for a comfortable walk-in bath experience.
The special feature of the Front Entry model is the front facing, outswing door which allows for effortless entry and exit of the tub. The outward swing door is crafted from industrial white PVC composite with a tempered glass panel, giving the tub a sleek, contemporary look. In addition, the Front Entry includes two access panels covering both sides of the tub which allows it to be installed in a variety of interior spaces. This model is perfect for smaller spaces where a conventional tub or shower cannot fit.

Soaking (No Jetting)
The walk-in tub shell of the Front Entry is constructed with premium acrylic in a white glossy finish, supported by a stainless-steel frame with adjustable leveling legs, and reinforced with fiberglass gel coat layers. The nonporous acrylic surface is easy to clean and impermeable to mold and mildew. A textured floor, low step-in threshold, enhance your safety and allow quick and safe entry and exit in and out of the tub.
The Ella Front Entry acrylic walk-in bathtub, measuring at 32″W x 40″L, is designed for the space-conscious, occupying less space than a typical walk-in tub yet still equipped with a spacious 24” wide molded seat. The Front Entry’s main feature is the door which is made from industrial grade durable plastic composite material with a decorative tempered glass screen to conceal the mechanical door lock system. The door is 19 1/4” wide, and swings outward from the tub to allow the bathers to comfortably enter and exit the tub. The outward swing door also creates more interior space, which allows bathers to effortlessly sit into the molded seat, pull the door and lock it. Ella U-Shape outward swinging doors use a gear and shaft driven 3-latch door lock that edges out our competition, who typically use a single latch/lever system. A 3-latch door system creates a more secure and watertight door seal, providing you with a safe, leak-free bathing experience.
One of the best and exclusive features of the Front Entry is its 2” gravity driven drain system. The drain is outfitted with its own overflow and stainless-steel cable operated drain opener with extended handle for an easier grip. Typical drainage time is approximately +/-80 seconds at ideal in-home plumbing conditions. Having a gravity driven 2” drain not only provides you with quick and reliable drainage, allowing you to safely drain and exit the walk-in tub. The two-inch drain can be connected using Tee or Y 2” pipe connector to the standard 1 ½” or 2” house drain. If possible, it is recommended to connect into 2” or 3” house drain for a faster drainage time. Ella gravity driven drains are fast and reliable because they do not require electric pump. Whereas electrical driven drains may fail due to electrical shorts or power outages.
The Front Entry also includes two (2) side panels. These panels cover the ends of the tub to give your walk-in tub a completed look.
This model also includes two reversible side panels. The side panels are used to cover the sides of the tub that are exposing the walk-in tub shell.
1. Hydro Massage System
The Front Entry walk-in tub has thirteen (13) strategically placed hydro jets in order to deliver optimal therapeutic relief. Eleven (11) upper fixed jets work to provide relief for your back, hips and thighs, while two (2) lower adjustable jets massage your feet and calves.
The Hydro Massage System includes: a hydro pump with an in-line water heater, an eco-friendly ozone sterilization system, a hydro massage intensity control dial, and a strategically positioned hydro jet system for targeted and effective massaging.
The in-line water heater is designed to maintain the water temperature at a constant level while bathing for maximum comfort. The ozone sterilization system is the most eco-friendly, chemical free disinfectant that can eliminate a wide variety of inorganic, organic, and microbiological bacteria. This sterilization system is especially helpful in eliminating odors and hygienic maintenance.
Lastly, the hydro massage intensity control dial allows you to adjust the strength of the water stream by adding more or less air into the hydro system.
2. Hydro + Air Massage System
The Front Entry walk-in tub has sixteen (16) strategically placed air jets in order to deliver rejuvenating therapeutic relief. Ten (10) upper, fixed flat jets work to provide relief to your back, hips and thighs, while an additional six (6) jets located in the lower foot area deliver a gentle massage to your feet and calves. Additionally, two (2) of the six (6) upper jets are bidet jets.
The air massage system includes an air pump with a 3-speed variable push control, strategically positioned air jets for optimal therapeutic relief, and auto-purge to maintain an air system free of any build ups.
Ella’s Air Jet System includes an Auto Purge System. It automatically activates 20 minutes after completing your bath in order to blow out any excess water and bacteria from the air jet lines. Auto-purge will run for 120 seconds to ensure your system is clear and free of moisture and excess water helping to prevent mildew build up.
3. Hydro + Infusion™ MicroBubble Therapy
Ella’s Infusion™ MicroBubble Therapy System consists of a single Microbubble jet connected to a hydro pump and a Microbubble tank system. The high-pressure hydro pump, along with the Microbubble tank, breaks down the water molecules into billions of tiny bubbles which are then sent out through a single jet. At the push of an on/off push control button, this feature can provide a moisturizing, exfoliating therapeutic experience all while detoxifying and relieving skin related issues.
