HEWI Nylon Grab Bars are high quality grab bars that surpass stainless steel grab bars in texture and aesthetic. The biggest complaint about stainless steel grab bars is how uncomfortable they feel in extreme temperatures. In cold temperatures, the stainless steel grab bars can feel like icicles and be difficult to hold on to. In hot temperatures, stainless steel grab bars can become so hot that you cannot hold them at all. The temperature extremes of stainless steel grab bars can be particular problematic for the elderly and disabled who rely on the stainless steel grab bars for support. HEWI Nylon Grab Bars do not suffer from the same temperature extremes as stainless steel grab bars. They will remain a comfortable temperature at all times.
The inferiority of stainless steel grab bars extends to its aesthetic options. The standard brushed stainless steel finish is a very industrial look and unappealing in most residential or high end commercial bathrooms. Stainless steel grab bars can be powder coated in a wide array of colors, but the finish is fragile and can be easily scratched or chipped. The colors can also appear less vibrant than one would expect when closely matching a painted grab bar to your existing color scheme. HEWI Nylon Grab Bars are composed of through colored nylon on a steel core. If HEWI Nylon Grab Bars are scratched, you will see the same color underneath and chipping is not an issue for the nylon coating. The durable and colorful nylon coating extends to the complete HEWI Bathroom Accessories line which will exactly match your HEWI Nylon Grab Bars. The brightly colored HEWI Nylon Grab Bars are particularly well suited for daycare centers and nursery schools where the colors will coincide with the brightly colored décor.
