When people think of bathroom grab bars, they picture what they’ve seen in hospitals or doctors offices. This usually means harsh, metal pieces that can be cold to touch. But there is good news! There are many different styles, colors, and materials available for grab bars.

A grab bar is a supportive rail that is typically attached to the bathroom wall and can assist a user in transferring more easily and safely into and out of the bathtub or shower or maneuvering onto and off of the toilet. Grab bars also provide additional support when washing in the bath or shower and are a simple cost-effective way to reduce slips and falls on wet floors.

Grab bars are usually bolted into the wall and can support up to 300 pounds. Ideally, permanent grab bars should be secured to the studs in the wall.  However, often times the studs do not allow for proper placement for adequate safety.

Either way, grab bars provide a significant safety improvement over bathrooms without grab bars. Grab bars provide good hand holds for anyone who is a bit unsteady on their feet and allows for users to be more independent in the bathroom than they would be without the help of grab bars.
