Grab rails can be used to hold on to while manoeuvring from room to room.
They can also offer something to grab onto in case of a slip or a fall. All PVC grab rails can be used both indoors and outdoors, but indoor grab rails are typically white – some people prefer the look of the ‘outdoor’ brown or black rails, to match the windows, door or drainpipe, or blend in with the brickwork. They’re most commonly used to help tackle front or back steps. Securing a rail onto the wall by a step is a great way of helping you stay stable when moving in and out of the house.
They’re also brilliant for help getting in and out of the bath, or on and off the toilet. In instances where additional care needs to be taken in raising or lowering whilst keeping the body steady, these supports are vital.
