Grab bars should be installed in every bathroom. Everyone has had a close call stepping out of your bathtub. Bathrooms are slippery. Installing safety hand rails in strategic places in your bathroom will give you a greater sense of security and help prevent falls. Grab bars can offer a number of key benefits that make them worth the investment, and there are many stylish options available now.
The Benefits of Grab Bars
Install grab bars securely into reinforced walls in needed areas. Grab bars can help facilitate mobility in the bathroom, where crutches, walkers, and wheelchairs might be inconvenient. Consider these advantages:
Grab bars can help prevent serious injury
Slips and falls, especially in slippery bathrooms, can cause serious injuries. Bumps, bruises, broken bones or traumatic brain injury can be caused in a slip and fall accident. When you have grab bars installed, on the other hand, you have something to catch onto if you do start to slip and fall. Grab bars, unlike towel rods and other items in your bathroom, are unlikely to come crashing down with your weight as soon as you grab at them.
As your mobility decreases, you may struggle to sit down onto the toilet, or get up out of the bathtub without help. With grab bars installed you can increase your overall independence and continue doing things by yourself.
Increase comfort and stability.
Your balance may leave you feeling uncertain. With grab bars in place you can enjoy increased comfort and stability within your home, keeping you steady whether you want to take a shower or use the restroom in peace.
Beauty and Function
Even if you understand the benefits of grab bars, you don’t want your bathroom to look institutional. After all, you’ve put a lot of love into its design over the years. Fortunately, grab bars don’t have to be unattractive. There are many stylish options and clever multi-fuctional designs.
Towel Bar with a Grab Bar
We carry a few different styles of towel bars that double as a grab bar that work really well just outside your shower. So long as they are properly installed with reinforcement behind the wall, you can use the towel bar to support yourself as you step out of the bathtub, and your towel is right there within reach. There are straight bars or a piano curved bar for a designer look.
We offer a corner shelf for your shower, that doubles as a grab bar. Because the shelf is secured to 2 walls the front edge bar is an added safety bar. Add storage space, add safety and keep your bathroom looking great.
You may want to hold onto something while adjusting the water pressure and temperature. The Valve bar can be installed around the mixing valve. It ends up looking like an added design featuure instead of a fuctional grab bar
Side of Toilet Grab Bars
The toilet is another part of the bathroom that many people need a little extra help to get up and down. The side of toilet piano curved bars look like the towel bars, but they also have a toilet roll holder. Mounted on a wall beside the toilet this beautiful bar is multi-functional. We also have folding side of toilet bars that you can mount on the wall behind the toilet to fold down beside you. You can even install two, one for each side.
