Thread: Grab bars

    Grab bars

    Does anyone know where I can purchase 30" and 48" stainless steel, 1.5" diameter grab bars from? They can be either polished, peened or standard?

    FaucetDirect had them but they are discontinued.

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks!

    Lowe's does have some nice grab bars - I also got mine from there. I bought the chrome polished ones so they would go better with the rest of the hardware in the house.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.

    Definitely get the peened one. I have a standard bar in my shower. It is too slippery to grasp if it gets wet or if you have soap on your hands - I am a T-10. I am going to change it out. Here is a link from a site with decent prices. Sorry to hear faucet's direct doesn't have them. When we built our house, I bought all of the faucets and grab bars from them.
