moen decorative grab barsChoosing the right grab bar and finding the right placement for your grab bars at home may be more complicated than it seems. Here are some guidelines that will be very helpful for choosing the best grab bar placement for your home.
– ADA safety rated grab bars –
Our specialists and contractors have gone into homes setup with “grab bars” that have been mounted by friends, families, or unfortunately even contractors with dangerous and unsafe setups. – towel bars, shower poles, and even toilet roll holders have been substituted for grab bars and are unsafe and insufficient to support the weight and safety for individuals for safety in the bathrooms. Furthermore we have found old grab bars that have been inadequately secured into the walls with screws into drywall and even glued to the wall. We recommend using ADA safety rated grab bars for your home that are weight rated and safety rated for your home’s accessibility.
– Consider color – not only a matter of aesthetics

BILD recommends if possible the use of color contrasting for your home grab bars. Contrasting color provides a visual cue to make sure that you don’t accidentally miss the grab bar. Regardless of your visual acuity this cue assists with safely locating and grabbing handles that provide you the security and safety that may mean preventing a hip fracture or fall in the bathroom. Using color may also provide a more aesthetic appeal to your bathroom grab bars as well. Ponte Giulio offers an affordable series of colored grab bars that provide contrasting colors, a “warmer touch” non-metallic coating, that is also antibacterial in nature.
