Satin-finish 18-gauge type 304 stainless steel tubing 1-1/4" (32mm) diameter. Flange has exposed mounting screw holes. Grab bar supports loads in excess of 250 pounds (113-kg) when properly installed. Meets ICC/ANSI A117.1-2003 Accessibility Standards in U.S.A. Mandrel bending process ensures uniform bar diameter around curves. All joints and supports are contour cut and welded. Concealed anchors and fasteners available as an optional accessory. Peened nonslip gripping surface available. Patented (B-4998, B-4998.99)
Grab Bar — 18-8 S, type-304, 18-gauge (1.2mm) stainless steel tubing with satin finish. 1–1/4 (32mm) outside diameter. Ends are heliarc welded to flanges. Backplate — 18-8 S, type-304, 3/16" (5mm) thick, satin-finish stainless steel with four screw holes for attachment to wall.
Swing-up grab bar is manually raised for approach or departure and lowered to horizontal position for support; once grab bar is raised more than 45° from horizontal position, counterweighted design prevents grab bar from falling back down to full horizontal position. Meets ICC/ANSI 117.1-2003 Accessibility Standards in U. S. A.
Swing-up grab bar can support loads in excess of 250 pounds (113kg) if properly installed, complying with barrier-free accessibility guidelines (including ADAAG in the U.S.A.) for structural strength. Caution: Grabs bars are no stronger than the anchors and walls to which they are attached and, therefore, must be firmly secured in order to sustain the loads for which they are intended.
Provide concealed anchor device or backing as specified or required in accordance with local building codes before wall is finished. Fasten grab bar to anchor device or backing. Concealed anchor devices and mounted screws are not included with Bobrick grab bars and must be specified as an optional accessory.
