Suction Grab Rails
Suction grab rails are a handy way to maintain independence in your bathroom and other rooms around the house. They are very easy to install with no drilling required. You simply mount them onto clean tiles and other smooth surfaces using the suction cups. They are easy to remove making them portable. Ideal for when visiting relatives or when staying away from home.
Suction grab rails are available in a variety of colours and are easy to wipe clean. Using a grab rail helps to prevent slips and falls around your home and will give you increased confidence. They can be put in shower cubicles, by your bath, toilet and used in any room with certain smooth surfaces. These surfaces include; metal, glass, stainless steel and acrylic. They can’t be used on painted surfaces, uneven tiles or non-porous surfaces.
Not just for bathrooms.
Whilst most people tend to use them in their bathrooms, they’re also handy in other rooms. They stick to certain kitchen surfaces. This can help you get off a perch stool or to steady yourself as you move around the room. They are also useful for young children, helping them in and out of a bath or shower safely and with confidence. However, they are intended as a guide not to be fully weight-bearing.
These rails are an affordable alternative to electric bath lifts, stools and seats. Walk-in baths and wet rooms are expensive so grab rails provide a handy solution and save you a fortune. The rails are waterproof and oilproof so you can use your usual bath oils and shower gels.
These suction grab rails can help guard against slips and falls and give you increased confidence and independence around the home. With over a third of people over 65 having a fall each year, and half of those over 80, these really are a useful idea.
Falls are the most common cause of death from injury in the over 65s and cost the NHS over £2bn a year and over 4 million bed days. (source: UK Health Security Agency)
They could even be given as a thoughtful gift for those difficult to buy for loved ones.
