Choosing A Baptistry, Baptism Font, or Pool
There are numerous criteria in selecting the baptistry most appropriate for any specific application. For existing construction the dimensions may be all important. Should there be a window? Will entry into the baptistry be on one side only or will entry from both sides be required? Will the pastor wish to stand in a dry area outside of the baptistry while performing the baptism?
Fberglass Specialties baptisteries have a unique, patented (U.S. Patent Number 5,790,990) design style that features more generous step treads for improved safety and comfort.
All Fiberglass Specialties baptisteries are designed with 11″ treads and 7″ risers as required by National Model Building Codes such as BOCA, SBCCA, UBC and the 2000 International Building Code. Each baptistery step also features a “raised circular disk” pattern widely used in commercial application.
The pattern provides a high level of slip resistance and offers easy cleaning.
When Fiberglass Specialties set out to design a safer baptistery we did not want to overly increase the size of the tanks which would have required the customer to have larger openings for installation and use more water for filling. In order to achieve our goal we designed each baptistery with steps that flow into the tank area. This allowed for the maximum use of available space without waste. The result conserves water and reduces costs associated with heating the water. It also provides an integrated child’s step within the tank area.

Our EZ line is designed for ministers that prefer to stay dry while performing the baptism.
