How high should I install my shower safety bar?

Pro Handyman suggests that shower safety bars be placed where they are most needed. That usually depends on the size and condition of the person who will be using the shower and whether they will be sitting or standing while showering. For example, a safety bar for a standing shower might be mounted 36 to 40 inches from the ground, while a tub bar might be closer to 28 inches from the ground.

Follow the Manufacturer's Guidelines

The University of Missouri Extension cautions that for maximum safety, shower safety bars must be "institutional grade, stainless steel, and installed according to manufacturer's directions." If a certain location on the wall would be convenient, but does not have a solid enough structure behind it, it is a poor location for a safety bar.

Bottom Line

Know the needs of the individual using the shower safety bar and position the bar in the most convenient location possible while taking into consideration the structure of the wall and the manufacturer's guidelines. More than one bar may be needed to maximise the safety and functionality of the shower.
