Comprehensive grab rail range can't be beaten
Inclusive bathroom solutions supplier AKW offers a comprehensive range of grab rails in many configurations for installation as a mobility support in bathrooms, particularly for the elderly and disabled.
The grab rails include fixed and fold-up steel and plastic versions, some fluted for additional grip and others with a smooth grip.
All the grab rails can support loads up to 15.5 stone (100Kg) with heavy duty versions rated to a maximum load of 30 stone (190Kg).
AKW fold-up support rails - ideal for use in multi-user bathrooms - are available in white or blue for users with impaired vision.
Cranked grab rails are manufactured from a long-lasting cold drawn mild steel tube. They feature an offset design which allows the user to step up to and through the doorway without releasing the grip and avoiding the possibility of hand grazing.
Newel rails, also made from cold drawn mild steel tube, offer a 90 degree turn around the newel post and provide additional grip while using stairs.
Other versions in AKW's inclusive range include flat end, angled (90 and 135 degrees) and floor-to-ceiling grab rails.
AKW is market leader in designing and manufacturing showers for those with disabilities, wet rooms, accessible bathrooms and kitchens, with more than 28 years' experience. The company offers free surveying services and advice for grab rail installation.
