DDA-compliant hinged grab bars bars in public and commercial washrooms

The elderly and disabled rely on grab bars in washrooms to provide support when sitting, standing, manoeuvring, dressing and to maintain balance. There are particular compliance regulations – Building Regulations Doc M, British Standards BS 8300, DDA Act and Equality Act legislation – that grab bars must adhere to in washspaces to ensure that users feel less vulnerable. Our foldaway TSL-GR45 hinged grab bar complies on length and strength, is easy to pull down and stow up, has an effortless slow-fall mechanism in order not to frighten or injure the user and comes in different colour finishes and correct LRV values to contrast against surrounding walls. Ideal for public and commercial restrooms in office, retail, museum and hospitality sectors.

How to create a compliant washroom that still looks beautiful

When thoughtfully designed and crafted using beautiful finishes, Doc M compliant grab bars can enhance the look of commercial washrooms. The TSL-GR45 is a space-saving design that drops down when required and can be folded up when not in use. Manufactured in high-grade stainless steel, it is hygienic and easy to clean and provides disabled cubicles with a minimalist, contemporary assistive device.

Grab bars with contemporary finishes

The stylish TSL-GR45 drop-down support bar can be specified in five different finishes so you can achieve a DDA-compliant washroom with refined aesthetics. We offer coloured grab bars in Black (BK), Brass, (BR), Bronze (BZ), Copper (CP), Satin (CS). We create our finishes using Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD). This process creates coloured stainless steel by coating it with Titanium Ion Plating. More environmentally friendly than electro-plating or powder coating, this superior process improves the performance of stainless steel by increasing its durability and abrasion, scratch and corrosion resistance. The 0.5 micron thick coating hardens the surface, giving it good impact strength and making it so durable that protective topcoats are almost never necessary. To specify your finish, please add the finish suffix to the main product code. For example, to order the TSL-GR45 Hinged Grab Bar in Copper, the code would be TSL-GR45CP.
