Description

The IFS15042.NBA white fixed bench is designed for use in sanitary facilities like bathrooms, showers or changing rooms, especially those adapted to people with mobility restrictions. One can fold up or fold down the hinged seat depending on one's needs. Such a wall-mounted folding shower seat with flat surface is made of antibacterial polypropylene. Regarding maintenance, clean it with a soft cloth with neutral soap and dry it also with a soft cloth. The package includes stainless steel wall supports, known for being a durable material. The recommended fixation height is 45-50 cm from the floor. In the tab below, you will find one full-size template to guide during installation; to print it, an A3 paper must be used.

On the other side, we also supply equivalent shower seats with backrest and/or adjustable feet, or a unit to be hanged from a grab rail (so it is removable).

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.
