If a grab rail cannot be installed on the wall next to the toilet or if there is no wall next to the toilet.
Key considerations for purchasing a support arm:
Dimensions: Please take a note of the width of the wall on either side of the toilet suite where you plan to attach the support arms. Also, ascertain the length from the wall to the start of the toilet seat. This will help you choose the right length for the support arm.
Construction Material: Since the support arms will be screwed into the wall, please ensure that the wall is either made with concrete or has been constructed with gyprock with the use of studs.
Weight: Please ascertain the weight of the user and the weight-bearing capacity of the toilet support arms. It is important that the toilet support arm should match the user’s requirements.
Safety and Comfort: Ultimately the user has to feel safe and comfortable using the toilet support arm, therefore, it is important that the user tests the toilet support arm and can guide the installer about their fitting preferences.
