Bathroom grab bars

Bathroom grab bars are suitable for various areas of your bathroom, from the shower or bathtub to next to the toilet or even in other areas of your home where you may struggle to lift yourself up.

Bathroom grab rails are typically positioned next to seats or stairs or areas where you might need extra support, such as front steps leading up to your front door. When positioned correctly, they help elderly or disabled people live their lives with more confidence.

What are bathroom grab rails?

A bathroom support rail is a cost-effective rail and support which can help you or someone you care for carry out a range of tasks in their home. They come in a range of colours, materials, sizes and coatings to help you find the right option for your needs.

Bathroom grab rails are attached to the walls of your bathroom for handheld support in an area of the home that can often be slippery and leave people with limited mobility feel vulnerable.

What are the benefits of bathroom grab rails?

Many people who have limited mobility, such as those recovering from an injury, someone with a disability, or an elderly person, struggle to lift themselves out of the bathtub or shower, or on and off the toilet. They offer somewhere for them to hold onto for support and balance, to reduce the risk of them falling and hurting themselves.

Different types of grab bars

There are various types of support rail or bars to choose from, depending on your needs. These aids come in straight or curved designs, which offer an aesthetic choice depending on your tastes.

There are also different materials, depending on the look you’re going for – a stainless steel bar offers a timeless, modern look while a coated steel rail offers protection and longevity. A steel grab rail can be used in the home or even outside for support getting in and out of your front door.

Grab bars can be fixed to the wall or there are suction bars which offer versatility and portability if you need to take the bar with you when you travel. They provide plenty of stability and grip on smooth tiled walls for your safety, while a fixed rail is a permanent addition to your bathroom for those who need to use the bar daily.

Integrated bathroom rails double as additional features of your home, such as a towel rail or a soap dish, depending on where you install the rail and what you need in your bathroom. They’re a more discreet way of installing rails into your bathroom and are a stylish addition. Likewise, fold up rails provide support that can be folded up when it’s not in use.

What to consider when choosing a grab rail

With various options when it comes to choosing grab rails, it can be difficult knowing what to look for when purchasing support.

Style – there are numerous designs of grab rails, from polished coated steel rails and coloured epoxy coated steel to plastic rails. The choice of aids and which one you choose depends on your personal preference and the style of your bathroom.

Size – You can choose a rail that best fits your bathroom, as there are a variety of sizes to choose between. Check that the wall fixings of the rail are suitable for your wall, whether you’re installing it in your bathroom or around the home.
