Bathroom grab bars can be installed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. It is important to understand each of these options when installing your grab bar.
- Horizontal grab bar installation is great for providing support in a larger area along a wall. This position will help with sitting or rising. It is also good for grabbing in case of a slip or fall.
- Vertical grab bar installation allows for easy grip as well as great stabilization in specific areas, such as getting in and out of the shower or tub. Additionally this position will help with balance while standing.
- Diagonal grab bar installation provides for more versatility with support regarding different heights and area. This installation position may be easier for people to use when pulling themselves out of a seated position.
