Three important questions when recommending grab bars.
Are you recommending grab bars because an individual in the
home has a specific need?
If there is a specific need, only a qualified medical professional can properly identify where grab bars should be placed, as well as other specific information such as weight requirements, diameter,angle,texture, etc.
Who is installing the bars?
Only a trained professional can properly in
stall a grab
bar. They know
that the LAST PLACE to install a
bar is in the studs! We reco
mmend using hangers
made specifically for the purpose and will hold the proper weight specified by the medical professional. We recommend using the SecureMount® system by Moen. Inexpe
nsive, easy to install and made to hold up to 300lbs.
Who decides what style,color,etc.
A. Only a design professional knows how to discuss with the individual what style, color, etc to use.
