Description

This 450mm grab rail with two support points and concealed fixings has been specially designed for sanitary facilities, including accessible toilets, bathrooms and changing rooms for disabled people. Adopting any position on the wall, IFS15054.45.S will help when sitting down, transferring or getting up. We offer this item in one of our Doc M pack of grab rails, in case one wants to use a 450mm grab bar for the inside face of a door. All the elements of this handrail are made of stainless steel, which is known by its resistance to corrosion and durability. Please follow the cleaning tips that you can find on the download tab below (use non-acid solutions and keep salt water away).

In order to design and manufacture this grab bar, EN 12182 : 2012 standards (European Directive 93/42/CE) were followed by an Applus accredited company.

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.

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. 

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.

What are the pros and cons of each finish?
