Choose the right grab rail for your home
Whether you’re adapting your bathroom, entranceway or staircase, a grab rail can offer extra support when moving around the home. To help you choose which grab bar is best suited to your needs, we’ve explained the different types available:
Wall-fixed or suction cup
Suction cup grab bars are easy to fix to a tiled surface, making them ideal for bathrooms. Most of ours can even be released from the wall and used when travelling away from home. Wall-fixed grab rails need to be screwed into the wall, but tend to offer more support.
Straight or angled
Depending on your needs a straight rail can be fixed at an angle, or in a straight horizontal or vertical position. Angled grab rails allow the user to rest their forearm on the horizontal section, while holding the upper section with their hand. This can be helpful for those with a weak grip, or sensitive hands or wrists, as it spreads the body’s weight across the forearm.
