Safety Starts In The Bathroom
More falls occur in bathrooms than in any other room in the home; there are more emergency calls for falls in the bathrooms than all emergency calls combined. The surfaces are slippery when wet or steamy; there is more turning in the bathroom’s small space, creating a high chance of falls. It is most likely catastrophic if you fall since hard ceramic surfaces, jagged edges, and smaller areas. That’s why safety in the bathroom is of the utmost importance.
Grab bars are safety devices designed to enable a person to maintain balance, lessen fatigue while standing, hold some of their weight while maneuvering or have something to grab onto in case of a slip or fall. A caregiver may use a grab bar to assist with transferring a patient from one place to another.

However, our focus is on types that have a grip when needing to hold on. Grab bars are not only installed for older adults who are lightheaded anymore, but for handicap, young children, and injured persons as well.

Times have changed. Today, you’ll find grab bars in fancy private homes and hotels. And you’ll swear that no two look the same. Some are straight, while others are curvy. Some attach to the wall at both ends. You can move others out of the way when you’re done with them. And grab bars now come in enough colors to satisfy every decorator.
There are different types of bathroom grab bars based on their functions, structure, and installation, and the sizes range from 12 inches to 30 inches.
Please choose from our large selection of sizes and finishes, including chrome, brass, and stainless steel. We professionally install customized grab bars in your shower, toilet, and tub. Grab bars can be installed on various surfaces such as tile, marble, or on a wall stud. The most effective grab bars are diamond cut and knurled for safety, so soap scum does not stick on the safety bar.
Our Installation Specialists have experience with seniors, mobility issues, and home safety. They are highly qualified and can help you choose and securely install a grab bar practically anywhere in your home or business, even when no stud is present.
Are suction grab bars Safe?
Installation is pretty straightforward, requiring little more than a drill and some common sense. But like many safety devices, grab bars can be dangerous if installed improperly — or, worse yet, not installed at all.

Will Medicare pay for grab bars?
Medicaid will pay for one grab bar per recipient, Medicare and most private insurance plans do not pay for grab bars. They are available through medical equipment suppliers, hardware stores, and wherever plumbing fixtures are sold.
Where should grab bars be placed?
Grab bars can be installed on the back wall and control wall of the shower stall. The ADA recommends that two bars be installed on the back wall, one 8 to 10 inches from the rim of the tub and the other parallel to it 33 to 36 inches from the base of the tub.
In toilets and showers, the tops of horizontal grab bars need to be 33 to 36 inches from the floor. In a transfer shower, the bottom of the vertical bar must be 3 to 6 inches above the horizontal bar on that wall. The problem is that installers often aim for one edge of the range, and end up a bit high or low.
