The bathroom tile is slippery when it is stained with water. It is difficult for young people to ensure that they will not fall down on it, let alone the old, the weak, the sick and the disabled. It is very easy to cause accidents such as slipping.
Therefore, installing a handrail at a convenient place in the bathtub can prevent them from falling down and facilitate them to make an emergency response in case of any situation. There is no absolute standard for the height of barrier free handrails installed in the bathroom. Try to choose the specific location and height according to the needs of the family, and the bathtub orientation is more appropriate.
If the family has no bathtub but only a shower room, it is recommended to install stainless steel barrier free handrails on the side of the shower head.

If conditions permit, it is better to set a chair with appropriate height beside it to double the sense of security.
