Bathroom safety refers to maintaining a safe environment for people with impaired mobility and motor functions and for the elderly who have a difficult time moving around in the bathroom.
Bathroom safety rails are individual or sets of safety rails that are installed in the bathroom to provide support for patients to move around in the bathroom. They are commonly installed around bathtubs and near commodes & shower areas.
Safety rails should not be confused with handrails that are installed near staircases and walkways. These safety rails are specifically designed to maintain a person’s stability while moving around the slippery surfaces of bathrooms.
Bathroom safety rails serve the same function as grab bars, but the basic difference being they can be installed in series to support continuous walking or moving around in the bathroom.
Toilet safety rails are used for the shower and bathtub and are attached to bathroom walls. When buying one, it is essential to remember the requirement, such as the weight of the individual who will be using it and where. Shower bars are made of different materials and have varying quality grip.
Types of toilet grab bars include wall grab bars, tub grab bars, knurled grab bars, shower suction grab handles, curved grab bars, and security poles.
The heavy-gauge steel knurled grab bar offers stability with a knurled chrome-plated finish. It provides a secure hand-gripping surface and can be mounted to the wall as structural support at various angles.
This safety bar is easily attached and installed without much hassle. It does not screw permanently into a wall, making them a perfect solution for renters or for use when traveling.
