Why Use Hand Grips in Your Acrylic Bathtub?

May 16, 2019

As we grow older, sometimes we have to add certain things around the house to help us be more mobile, or feel safer. The bathroom is one place where things can get dicey, and it’s important to take the right precautions to stay safe.

In the bathroom, the shower is somewhere people worry about falling or slipping the most. To eliminate this worry, you might be thinking about calling in a bathroom remodeling contractor to see how they can help you. However, there is no need to worry if you have hand grips for your shower.

The Benefits of Hand Grips

For starters, having a hand grip or grab bar makes it so much easier for those who have mobility issues to get in and out of the shower or tub. This cuts down on likeliness to fall, and can increase one’s sense of independence and confidence.

Creating ease for the user is the main purpose of a hand grip or grab bar. They not only make it easier to get in and out of the bath or shower, but they also make it easier to lower yourself in to a bath. Plus, they can help stabilize you and keep you balanced throughout your shower so you don’t slip.

Hand grips and grab bars are also available in many different shapes and sizes, which makes it easier for someone to pick out the best hand grips and grab bars for their needs. There’s straight bars, angle bars, and grips that you can choose from. You should pick the kind that best suits your needs.

The Types of Hand Grips

Hand grips and grab bars are very versatile and so there are many different kinds that you could get. There is a variety of material you can choose from, from plastic all the way to chrome. You can get them installed on your shower wall, or they can be clamped to the side of the tub, or put in place with suction cups that make it easy to move where you need it. There’s even different shapes for the grab bars, from straight to L-shaped and everything in between.
