The average healthy, adult human can generate about 60lbs of pull strength using their own power. That same average, adult human’s fingers generally straighten out or release at about 80lbs of pull pressure due to the sheer force on the digits. The Single Grip Portable Grab Bar has been tested to hold up to roughly 200lbs of Pull Pressure** Test surface .25 Acrylic
Bridge Medical designed and engineered their Portable Grab Bars from the ground floor up – actually consulting with Occupational and Physical Therapists as well as Orthopedic Surgeons during the design phase. This research led to a phenomenal, Patented design that not only works great, but looks great in any bathroom decor.
The key to safety, stability and hold strength lies in the composition of the rubber. Our 4.7” diameter, ¼ inch thick pads are made of the strongest, most expensive natural, vulcanized rubber in the world. They are the strongest and most reliable on the market today. There are other so-called “Portable Grab Bars” on the market that claim to be strong, but many of them are assembled with suction pads made of cheap, soft PVC plastic material that cannot hold more than a few pounds of pull pressure. Be VERY WARY of these devices! As is often said, “You get what you pay for.” In the Portable Grab Bar world, relying upon cheap devices that could release when you need them most is worse than not having one at all. Choose only the best for your safety!
At home, when traveling (ours fit great in a suitcase or purse!) or anywhere you can attach our suction pads to a smooth, flat, non-porous surface. Our Portable Grab Bars are great for use on fiberglass and acrylic tub and shower surrounds, porcelain, ceramic, Glazed Tiles, Corian, Cultured Marble, and Glass (to name a few). Use it for a balance assist on the vanity or attached to the counter in the kitchen or while seated at a large table.
Suction Cup Diameters range from 4.7” for the BC201 (Single Grip), BC500 (Telescoping Grip) and BC400 (Telescoping Pivot Grip). Our BC600 (4” Tile Grip) is our only Portable Grab Bar with a 3.7” Suction Cup Diameter and is specifically made for 4” Tile configurations.
