What is a grab bar?

Grab bars are safety grab brails that provide critical handhold grips to enhance stability and promote slip prevention.

What are grab bars used for?

Grab bars help maintain balance to prevent slips and falls, ease fatigue while standing, support some weight while maneuvering, or to have something to grab onto in case of a slip or fall.

Grab bars are generally installed in and around the following areas:

  • Showers
  • Baths / Bathtubs
  • Toilets
  • Bathrooms
  • Bedrooms
  • Stairs

The most popular places to place grab bars are in bathtubs, showers, and toilets to allow a safe step in and out and to allow extra support that may be needed to comfortably get up and down. Grab bars can be used for any area that requires an extra handhold for additional support.

Who uses grab bars?

Grab bars are used by people of all ages and abilities that can benefit from extra support and stability while maneuvering around the shower, bathtub, toilet, bathroom, or any other area where physical stability is of issue.

Grab bars are primarily installed for and used by the following people:

  • Seniors and the elderly
  • People with physical and mental handicaps
  • People with special needs
  • Patients recovering from injuries.

Grab bars are beneficial for all ages and abilities, however, they are especially important for anyone who needs a little extra help in the bathroom. If you feel that you or your loved one may need grab bars, you should err on the side of safety.

Why are grab bars important?

A simple grab bar, when properly placed, can prevent a slip or fall that has the potential to lead to months of rehab.

People that use grab bars feel much more secure living independently. Grab bars provide the following benefits:

  • Reduce the risk of falling in the tub or shower.
  • Help steady oneself getting in or out of the shower or tub.
  • Assist in raising or lowering oneself from a seated position.
  • Provides you and your loved ones peace of mind every time you step into the shower or tub.

Grab bars help people live in homes safely, independently and comfortably, regardless of age or physical ability level.

Why you should buy a grab bar?

If you or a loved one has noticed a decrease in balance or strength, a grab bar may be just the thing to help you do everyday in a safe and reliable way. Grab bars can help to reduce the risk of falling in the tub or shower, help you to get into and out of the bathtub or shower and assist you in safely lowering and raising yourself from a seated position. Grab bars are an easy way to add a sturdy surface to hold onto to assist with sit to stand, balance or safe transfers or general safety.

Are grab bars necessary?

Grab bars are only necessary in certain circumstances.

  • Commercial: For commercial applications such as public restrooms, grab bars are required by ADA law and local building codes.
  • Residential: For private residential applications such as home bathrooms, grab bars are only necessary if the person using the restroom requires extra assistance. There are no laws mandating grab bar installation in privately owned homes.

Bottom line, grab bars are inexpensive, fairly easy to install, prevent injuries, and save lives.
