Make your bathroom safer and more versatile by adding grab bars. In your bathtub or shower, grab bars provide extra security for that first slippery step. We'll show you the best way to install them.
Grab bars aren't just safety devices for hospitals and public restrooms. In your own home, a strategically placed and solidly anchored grab bar can mean the difference between a relaxing bath and a trip to the emergency room.
Here are guidelines for placing the bars:
- Place an 18-in. to 24-in. long bar vertically at the tub edge to assist in getting in and out of the tub. The bottom of the bar should be 32 to 38 in. above the floor. Position the bar so it can be anchored to a wall stud.
- Mount a bar at an angle between two wall studs on the long back wall of the tub. The bottom of the bar should be about 6 to 10 in. above the top of the tub. For studs 16 in. apart, a 24-in. long bar provides a nice angle. A person can use this grab bar to help lower himself and get up again.
- If this bar will be used primarily by a person sitting in a bath chair, raise the bottom to about 18 in. above the tub.
- Mount a bar horizontally about 36 in. to 38 in. above the bottom of the tub as a convenient handhold while showering.
