Description

Soft yet long-lasting, this fold-down shower seat with backrest is designed to hang from a horizontal grab rail, which is not included in the box. Such a white shower bench can be placed or removed according to the situation. IFS15042.MOV.NBA can especially help mobility and improve user's independence in accessible bathrooms, showers and changing rooms. We also supply wall mounted fold-down shower seats with or without backrest as well as adjustable legs. This shower seat is made of antibacterial white polypropylene. The surface of the bench has a flat finish. So that materials can last, please wash with neutral solutions and dry, in both cases using a soft cloth.

The grab rail that one needs to hang this fold-down shower seat from must be resistant, for example like one of our shower stainless steel grab rails. The supplier does not require any specific requirement regarding the bar diameter, but the unit was tested on Ø 32 mm and Ø 34 mm bars. Regarding the recommended installation height, the seat once opened should be approximately 50 cm from the floor.

What do English regulations (Document M) say about grab rails?

We have published a blog post with a Doc M mini-guide to choose the most suitable grab rails for different wheelchair-accessible sanitary facilities and fix them in the right area. You can read it by clicking here.

Could you explain more about its antibacterial effectiveness?

The polymers that compose the white ABS coating are enriched with highly effective additives against Escherichia coli, Salmonella enteritides, Staphylococusaureus and Listeria monocytogenos.

In the first 2 hours, only 5% of the germs are left. Within 24h, the reduction is 99,9%. You can see it on the chart below.

How much weight does this grab rail tolerate?

The manufacturer tested that this grab rail supports up to 100Kg.

Bear in mind that this number is related to how properly the fixing to the wall has been made, as well as the sort of wall and the maintenance of all the elements involved. 

We highly encourage you to use the mounting material that is included in the package, follow the installation manual and read the upkeep tips.

Regarding contrast, what colour surface is the best for this finish?

Every finish reflects some light, which is measured on a scale from 0 to 100 (called light reflectance value, LRV). The difference between the LRV of two finishes is the contrast.

One grab rail and the wall or floor should have at least 30 points of contrast in accessible sanitary areas inside buildings other than dwellings according to the English regulations (Approved Document M). People with visual impairments and conditions like dementia require that these fittings have this minimum contrast with the surrounding surfaces in case of average light situations.

For instance, in case of a white painted wall (value around 85), a grab rail with a darker finish should be chosen (55 at most), like brushed stainless steel or blue.

The examples below are illustrative.

Illustrative light reflectance values (LRVs)
White80-90
Yellow, beige60-80
Orange, light blue, light green40-60
Polished stainless steel40-60
Brushed stainless steel40-45
Proper green, blue or red, dark grey10-25
Black, brown5-10

Check the LRVs of the products involved by consulting the technical sheet your manufacturer may have provided you. If they have not, you could do some research on the exact shade of colour (there are dozens of blue, each one with a different value: cobalt, indigo, sky, teal...). Also consider the finish; metal, glass, wood or plastic do not cause the same reflectance. 

What are the pros and cons of each finish?

We have written a blogpost about it. Please, click here.
