Cover snaps over mounting flange to conceal screws.

Concealed mounting flange 1/8″ (3mm) thick stainless steel plate, 2″ W x 3-1/8″ H (50 x 80mm), with two screw holes for concealed anchors.

Cover is 22-gauge (0.8mm) stainless steel with satin-finish, 3-1/4″ (85mm) dia.

Grab bars that provide 1-1/2″ (38mm) clearance from the wall can support loads in excess of 900 pounds (408-kg) when properly installed.

Meets ADA Accessibility Guidelines in U.S.A.

All joints and supports are contour cut and welded.

Concealed anchors and fasteners available as an optional accessory. Peened nonslip gripping surface available.
NOTE: 2-wall grab bars are generally a bad idea. The reason is they are made perfectly square and it is extremely rare for 2 walls to be exactly at 90 degrees. If using in prefabricated shower enclosure the grab bar works well.

MATERIALS:

Grab Bar — 18-8 S, type-304, 18-gauge (1.2mm) stainless steel tubing with satin finish. 1-1/2″ (38mm) outside diameter. Ends are heliarc welded to flanges. Clearance between the grab bar and wall is 1-1/2″ (38mm).

Concealed Mounting Flanges — 18-8 S, type-304, 1/8″ (3mm) thick, stainless steel plate; end flanges 2″ x 3-1/8″ (50 x 80mm) with two holes for
attachment to wall. Intermediate flanges 2-5/8″ x 3-1/8″ (65 x 80mm) wide x 3-1/8″ (80mm) diameter.

Snap Flange Covers — 18-8 S, type-304, 22-gauge (0.8mm) drawn stainless steel with satin finish. 3-1/4″ (85mm) diameter x 1/2″ (13mm) deep. Each cover snaps over mounting flange to conceal mounting screws.

STRENGTH:

Bobrick grab bars that provide 1-1/2″ (38mm) clearance from wall can support loads in excess of 900 pounds (408kg) if properly installed. Other grab bar configurations can support loads in excess of 250 pounds (113kg) if properly installed, complying with barrier-free accessibility guidelines (including ADAAG in the U.S.A.) for structural strength.

Warning: Grab bars are no stronger than the anchors or walls to which they are attached and, therefore, must be firmly secured in order to support the loads for which they are intended.

INSTALLATION:

Provide concealed anchor device or backing as specified or required in accordance with local building codes before wall is finished. Fasten concealed mounting flanges to anchor device or backing with two screws in each flange. Snap flange covers over each mounting flange to conceal mounting screws.

Concealed anchor devices and mounting screws are not included with Bobrick grab bars and must be specified as an accessory.
For Grab Bars with an Intermediate Flange(s), Pull Snap-Flange Covers away from mounting flanges. Place grab bar in desired mounting location. Use intermediate flange as a template to mark location of mounting screws at intermediate flange only. Mark screw locations at the center of the slot in the middle of the double-keyhole shaped mounting holes (2) in the intermediate flange. Remove grab bar from wall. Drive the intermediate flange mounting screws into wall at marked locations. Note: Make sure to leave a space of just over 1/8” (3.17mm) between the underside of the screw head and the wall. Install grab bar on the wall by placing the round ends of the intermediate flange double-keyhole shaped mounting holes over the mounting screws (2) are located in the middle of the flange slots. Install the mounting screws into the wall at the end flanges and secure tightly. Tighten the mounting screws at the intermediate flange. Press all snap-flange covers into place to conceal mounting flanges.

Note: Recommend use of 1/4” or #14 (M6.3) sheet metal or wood screws to install Intermediate Flange. #12 (M5.5) screws may also be used.
