Looks like their designs have the doors opening inward...
That's a big plus for strong design IMHO...

Nothing like having the pressure of the water in the tub helping to hold the door closed tighter...

The Safety Tubs we use have a pump assisted drain. It clears a full tub in a little over a minute.

As far as "what if" scenarios are concerned, it is no different than if they pulled the plug on a regular tub drain and it just happened to be stopped up, there's going to be a tub full of water coming out somewhere.

It is doubtful that would happen without other indications or symptoms before the bathing event.

Looks like a total "marketing" company to me, not a bathtub business. Cheap Chinese tubs, poorly written dealer "media kit" full of typos, working out of a virtual office. You can do way better by finding a real dealer in this business and team up with them to market and install in your area.

Huh? Why would the drain line all of a sudden stop flowing? That's unheard of. No different than any conventional bathtub.
