Description

This angled grab bar has been designed for use in bathrooms, especially those adapted for disabled people. In particular, IFS15159.NBA is supposed to be fitted on the left hand side of the toilet. It can be used as well in showers or changing rooms. Since the 4mm ABS coating is antibacterial and warm, the grab rail is proper for healthcare premises too, like hospitals. A 700mm arm meant to be vertical and a 400mm arm compose this inverted-L-shaped grab rail. The angle that both arms make is 90 degrees and right-hand side. The core is made of aluminium and the wall supports are made of stainless steel. These components can be really durable should you follow the maintenance tips on the download tab below (clean with a cloth -not a scourer- and non-acid solutions). Note that the fixings and flange covers to conceal them are included in the box.

Applications: Adapted bathrooms for disabled, Adapted toilets for disabled, Bathroom, Bathtub, Changing room, Healthcare, Public Toilet, Shower, Wash basin, WC, WC-Bidet


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)
White 80-90
Yellow, beige 60-80
Orange, light blue, light green 40-60
Polished stainless steel 40-60
Brushed stainless steel 40-45
Proper green, blue or red, dark grey 10-25
Black, brown 5-10

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. 

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.

What are the pros and cons of each finish?
