  5. Installation

Safety

The main point of grab rails is help assist the user move within a room safely. The best way to ensure safety is to only use grab rails specific for the room. A great example for this is using anti-ligature or security rails which are designed for prisons, psychiatric hospitals and other environments where the users mobility and safety need to be considered.

Something to also consider is what the user’s preferred hand to use the grab rail would be. Grab rails are often designed to be hand-specific, left hand or right hand.

Always get advice about which grab rail is the right pick for what room, as this will ensure you’re buying the correct product first time round.

Mobility

Independent living and mobility is important for many people and providing the equipment to assist them is readily available. Grab rails can be installed for the home, office and public spaces to assist people maintain mobility and independence.

There are several different types of grab rails for all rooms including the bathroom, shower and toilet. These rail types include drop down rails, toilet backrests, shower grab rails, freestanding toilet rails and straight rails.

Stability

Grab rails must significantly help with stability. They must be designed to handle the force and pressure being applied and are made from strong, durable steel which make the user feel like they can trust the equipment they are using. They must also be easy to hold on to and slip-resistant. Some grab rails come with a peened or diamond shir-grip option for added grip. Each manufacturer of grab rails and accompanying accessories can provide you with their recommended cleaning guidelines to ensure dirt and grime that builds up overtime is easily and often to minus a slippery surface.

Australian Standards

Australian Standard guidelines are written and enforced to ensure that accessible equipment like grab rails and toilet backrests are installed and used correctly. A private dwelling, however, is exempt from these regulations. These Standards allow for all accessible bathrooms to be uniform and usable for anyone who needs. To check that your rail selection meets these requirements simply ask your sales representatives and they will be able to assist you.

Installation

Installing grab rails are generally easy to do, but sometimes they may require a professional to ensure they are mounted on the right surface. If you’re installing them at home, make sure you have read all the instructions provided and the chosen surface is suitable for a grab rail to be installed on. No matter what room you’re installing the grab rails in, please ensure that the surface can hold the grab rail and they are fully accessible to the user as their safety is the main priority.
