Description

Such a 1200mm grab bar with three support points is designed for use close to toilets, bathtubs, showers and changing places, especially those accessible for disabled people and the elderly. This bathroom grab rail has an aluminium inner core with a 4mm antibacterial ABS coating, whose surface is soft and warm to the touch. The materials of IFS15054.120.NBA are therefore suitable for sanitary facilities, also at hospitals and similar environments. The wall supports (included) are made of durable stainless steel. To conceal the fixings, white flange covers are provided too. Note that the handrail does not require to be earthed.

We encourage to follow the maintenance tips below so that the grab rail lasts for as much time as possible in the best condition (use always soft cloths and neutral solutions).

What do English regulations (Document M) say about grab rails?

We have published a blog post with a Doc M mini-guide to choose the most suitable grab rails for different wheelchair-accessible sanitary facilities and fix them in the right area. You can read it by clicking here.

Could you explain more about its antibacterial effectiveness?

The polymers that compose the white ABS coating are enriched with highly effective additives against Escherichia coli, Salmonella enteritides, Staphylococusaureus and Listeria monocytogenos.

In the first 2 hours, only 5% of the germs are left. Within 24h, the reduction is 99,9%. You can see it on the chart below.

How much weight does this grab rail tolerate?

The manufacturer tested that this grab rail supports up to 100Kg.

Bear in mind that this number is related to how properly the fixing to the wall has been made, as well as the sort of wall and the maintenance of all the elements involved. 

We highly encourage you to use the mounting material that is included in the package, follow the installation manual and read the upkeep tips.

Regarding contrast, what colour surface is the best for this finish?

Every finish reflects some light, which is measured on a scale from 0 to 100 (called light reflectance value, LRV). The difference between the LRV of two finishes is the contrast.

One grab rail and the wall or floor should have at least 30 points of contrast in accessible sanitary areas inside buildings other than dwellings according to the English regulations (Approved Document M). People with visual impairments and conditions like dementia require that these fittings have this minimum contrast with the surrounding surfaces in case of average light situations.

For instance, in case of a white painted wall (value around 85), a grab rail with a darker finish should be chosen (55 at most), like brushed stainless steel or blue.

The examples below are illustrative.

Illustrative light reflectance values (LRVs)
White80-90
Yellow, beige60-80
Orange, light blue, light green40-60
Polished stainless steel40-60
Brushed stainless steel40-45
Proper green, blue or red, dark grey10-25
Black, brown5-10

Check the LRVs of the products involved by consulting the technical sheet your manufacturer may have provided you. If they have not, you could do some research on the exact shade of colour (there are dozens of blue, each one with a different value: cobalt, indigo, sky, teal...). Also consider the finish; metal, glass, wood or plastic do not cause the same reflectance. 

What are the pros and cons of each finish?

We have written a blogpost about it. Please, click here.
