Bathroom Grab Bars help everyone
Installing grab bars in any bathroom is an inexpensive way to make the bathroom safer for people of all ages and abilities.
No matter how old you are, having a secure safety bar properly installed in the right locations will make you feel safe in the room where the most household slips and falls happen.
Where should Bathroom Safety Bars be placed in the Bathroom?
There is always room to add a grab bar or two in relevant spots to help someone get out of the bath or shower or near the toilet. Here are some suggested places where safety bars would be beneficial:
In the bath or shower
· horizontally along the back wall
· horizontally underneath the controls.
· vertically at the entrance, usually opposite the control valve, or on the side that someone would be stepping into the shower.
Outside the bath/shower
· Having a safety bar integrated with a towel bar installed just outside the shower provides extra support, and convenience of having your towel within a safe reach.
By the toilet
· Side of toilet bars help provide support when either sitting, or trying to stand up from sitting for those that may struggle with that.
· Folding bars are available so you can move them out of the way when they aren’t needed.
Integrated bars are available with a toilet roll holder, so you have have the convenience of both purposes handing where you need it.
