HEWI LifeSystem Support Rails: Grab Bars for Luxury Bathrooms

988.84.199.1LifeSystem Support Rails by HEWI are a durable, high end alternative to traditional stainless steel and alternate nylon grab bars. HEWI Nylon Grab Bars are not exactly cheap nor are they poor quality; but, with the introduction of the HEWI LifeSystem Support Rails, HEWI created a more aesthetically appealing grab bar for bathrooms in high end homes, offices, or even in hospitals. HEWI LifeSystem Support Rails are actually more of a substitute for HEWI Nylon Swing Up Grab Bars. The difference is that the HEWI LifeSystem Support Rails are designed as more of an armrest that you would see on a chair or in a car. The grip pad at the front is ergonomically designed for a comfortable grip and the HEWI LifeSystem Support Rail allows height and length adjustments for more comfortable usage. An assortment of colors for the nylon armrest and CFC-free polyurethane grip are available to complement a variety of color schemes.
HEWI did not end their innovation with the HEWI LifeSystem Support Rail. They expanded the LifeSystem line to also encompass ergonomic, handicap accessible bathroom accessories to assist the elderly or disabled. From the HEWI LifeSystem Towel Holder with Walking Aid Holder to the HEWI LifeSystem Adjustable mirror, HEWI has produced a line of high quality, high end accessories for residential bathrooms, commercial restrooms, hospitals, and nursing homes. The HEWI LifeSystem accessories serve as a complement to HEWI’s already stellar array of nylon grab bars and bathroom accessories.

HEWI Nylon Grab Bars: A Superior Substitute for Stainless Steel

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.
