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.
Specifically designed to ensure safety while using the bathroom and provide support while getting in and out of the bathtub. The clamp-on tub rail has powder-coated steel construction and features a stainless-steel locking mechanism. The non-wearing rubber pads provide scratch-proof security.
It offers safety and support in and around the bathtub, and the clamp design stays secure after repeated use. In addition, its patented step-through design provides an unobstructed entry and exit path, allowing better hand positioning—the bi-level hand grip for maximum flexibility and safety.
Mounts to standard or elevated toilet seat and provides arms to help get on and off the toilet. It features closed-cell foam armrests that offer a comfortable, sure grip. The handles are adjustable and rotate back to accommodate comfortable and secure positions. The easy-to-clean aluminum frame mounts securely onto the bowl with an adjustable bracket and is latex free.
