The oval profiled plastic rail provides under-hand grip diameter of 40mm, so providing the user with a rail giving increased sense of security (the rail diameter is however 30mm, it being an oval section). Ergonomically designed, the grip of the rail has a unique soft-feel ribbed underside in pale green for firmer patient hold (see detailed picture). Moulded brackets offer 2 hole fixings and have smart screw covers to complement the aesthetic qualities of this rail (holes diameter is 60mm from between centres). Hand clearance from rail underside to wall is 50mm (see line drawing). All plastic construction eliminates the need for earthing.
It is very important to consider the task you want to use the grab rail for. Is it to stand from sitting to standing from a bath or shower seat? Or for support while using stepping into the bath? Or can it be used in combination with bath equipment?
The strength of the wall is very important. Can the wall be strengthened or is an alternative solution required?
Grab rails in a bathroom should have a ribbed or textured surface to give extra grip when wet. They should either be plastic or be earthed to protect against risk of electrocution.
