Many elderly and disabled people find it inconvenient to move around, and the bathroom is damp and prone to slipping, leading to many safety accidents. The invention of accessible handrails makes it more convenient for people with disabilities and the elderly to use them, and the excellent design allows users to instantly experience humanistic care. So what are the better sizes for barrier free handrails?
The most direct purpose of setting up accessible handrails in the bathroom is to prevent the elderly or weak from accidentally slipping when using the restroom. By using accessible handrails, it is possible to achieve normal activity and self care without obstacles. Accessible handrails have a wide range of uses, such as in hospitals, high-end office buildings, shopping malls, private residences, and other places. It can be installed next to the toilet and bathtub.
The armrest installed next to the toilet mainly meets the needs of people who can easily reach it. Based on the normal human body, if the height of the toilet is about 40 centimeters, the height of the armrest should be between 50 centimeters and 60 centimeters. The height suitable for disabled and elderly people is generally between 65 centimeters and 80 centimeters.
When using a bathtub for bathing, it is inevitable that sometimes the bathtub water will overflow onto the ground, causing the ground to be damp. The bathroom tiles are slippery when stained with water, making it difficult for young people to ensure that they do not fall, let alone the elderly, weak, sick, and disabled, which can easily cause accidents such as slipping. Therefore, installing a handrail in a convenient place in the bathtub can prevent falls and facilitate their emergency response in the event of a situation. There is no absolute standard for the height of accessible handrails installed in bathrooms. It is recommended to choose specific locations and heights according to the needs of family members, and the installation of bathtub orientation is more suitable.
If there is no bathtub and only a shower room for families, it is recommended to install stainless steel barrier free handrails on the side of the shower head. Although the bathroom floor is generally treated with anti slip treatment, installing handrails can double the sense of security for family members. If conditions permit, it is best to set up a seat with a suitable height next to it to double the sense of security.
