How do you choose the right wall bracket? Thuiszorg Webshop explains it.
Why a wall bracket or shower bracket?
Wall brackets or shower brackets provide support, comfort and safety for people with increased risk of falling. Especially in the bathroom and the toilet they are indispensable . You can place them around your bath but also at the toilet or in the shower.
There are different types of wall brackets: some are straight , some curved . Some short and others long or adjustable . Some are fixed with screws , some with suction cups . How do you choose the right one for your bathroom and your needs?
Straight or curved wall bracket?
Curved wall brackets have a specific bend in the design. This bend ensures that you can grab this bracket in different positions. This type of wall bracket is usually used if it has to offer support in different positions. Eg to stand up from a shower stool or to straighten out of your bath.
Short or long wall bracket?
Depending on the situation, you can therefore opt for a short, long or adjustable shower bracket . Short braces (<30 cm) are chosen if space is limited or if there is a very specific place where support should be provided. This is also a more discrete version than the larger brackets.
Longer wall brackets are chosen when support is needed at different heights and positions . For example, in a house where several people use the same bracket or a bath or shower where it is safer if one can move with two hands .
Adjustable wall brackets (always on suction cup) are often used in rooms with small tiles where there are many joints and it is difficult to place the bracket between the joints. They are also useful if you want to reuse them in different places in different homes.
Wall bracket with screws or mobile wall bracket on suction cup without drilling?
Many do not want to drill holes in the wall and opt for a wall bracket on suction cups . People often wonder if this is just as safe and secure. Of course, a fixed wall bracket has no chance of loosening. The mobile wall brackets on suction cups that we offer meet the most stringent TÜV tests. This means that our wall brackets on suction cups are very reliable and safe.
Which color and material do I choose best?
If you do not suffer from visual impairment or dementia, you can choose a neutral color that fits in the environment (anthracite, stainless steel, white, gray). If this is not the case, choose a red or dark blue wall bracket in contrast color . This is specially made for visually impaired or people with dementia.
In terms of material, there are PVC, stainless steel and steel wall brackets. It is up to the user to choose which material he or she prefers. They are all considered equally safe, however an inox wall bracket can feel more comfortable to use than a PVC wall bracket. Both also have ridges and anti-slip to prevent the slipping of your hands.
