What style, length, size grab bar should you choose when remodeling?
The majority of grab bar diameters are either 1 ¼” diameter or 1 ½” diameter. The diameter size is a best fit solution. Meaning the smaller the diameter the better suited the grab bar is for someone with a smaller hand.
Covered Screw vs. Exposed Screw
Choosing between a covered or flanged grab bar and an exposed screw Handlebar™ Grab Bars is an aesthetic choice. If you like to see the screw heads choose an exposed screw item. If you prefer to hide the installation screws, purchase an item that has a cover flange. Once the Handlebar™ is installed the flange snuggly fits over the mounting area to conceal the screw heads. Both styles are ADA compliant when installed correctly.
Safety Grip vs. Non-Safety Grip
Safety Grip is a peened finish on the Stainless Steel Handlebar™ Grab Bars that makes them easier to hold on to. This finish can be especially helpful if the Handlebar™ Grab Bars is going to be installed in an area where it maybe wet, like a shower, or if the users hands maybe wet, like a bathroom. Non-Safety Grip Handlebar™ Grab Bars are simply smooth stainless steel. Both styles are ADA compliant when installed correctly.
