I believe that most people have a bathroom in their homes. The bathroom is where we take a bath. Some people’s bathroom and toilet are connected together, and some people’s bathroom and toilet are separate. Different bathrooms have different designs, but the same is that almost all bathroom designs will have bathroom grab bars. What is a bathroom grab bar? A bathroom grab bar is a safety device that can prevent slipping. Next, let's take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of bathroom handrails and see how to choose them.

一. Advantages and disadvantages

1. advantages
Sturdy and durable, streamlined design, simple and practical. Strong stability, high density, heavy weight, no peeling, no fading after electroplating and polishing, and it is not easy to rust in a humid environment, not easy to age, and the overall structure is not loose. Corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance and low temperature resistance, strong stability, no fading, anti-wear function, good bonding force.

The surface is plated with bright chrome, the texture is perfect, the coating has strong bonding force, no rust, no peeling. It has high-strength anti-corrosion and anti-wear functions, good bonding force, uniform coating, thick visual perception, and the surface color is as bright as a mirror.

2. disadvantages
After using for a long time, the surface will darken and a thin layer of copper oxide will be formed. If the copperware is placed in a humid environment, green patina will form on the surface. After being used for a period of time, a layer of mist will appear on the surface of the stainless steel, making the surface of the handrail dark. The hardness is relatively low, and at the same time its wear resistance is relatively poor, and the melting point of aluminum is relatively low.

二. Selection skills

All the accessories in the bathroom can be said to have the finishing touch. Not only are they necessary, they have a variety of shapes, but also the key to creating a bathroom space. However, it is still an old saying. Use it in vain. Four elements should be mastered when purchasing:

(1) Material: The bathroom handrails in the market are made of the following materials: copper chrome, stainless steel chrome plating, aluminum alloy chrome plating, etc. Among these materials, pure copper chrome plating products can prevent oxidation and rarely fade; the price of stainless steel chrome plating Cheap, but the use time is relatively short. Although bathroom handrails are small things, consumers should pay attention to choosing good quality products, otherwise they will have to replace the bathroom handrails every time.

(2) Coating: Coating treatment is very important for hardware pendants, and it is related to product service life, smoothness and wear resistance. Good coatings are black and shiny and have a moisturizing feel, while inferior coatings are dull. A good coating is very flat, while a poor-quality coating will find wavy undulations on the surface if you look closely. Those with dents on the surface must be inferior products. Good coatings are more wear-resistant, and there are basically no scratches on the surface, while inferior products will have dense scratches on the surface.

(3) Brand: If you want to buy bathroom handrails with after-sales protection, consumers are better to choose brand bathroom handrails. Although branded items are expensive, when the quality of bathroom handrails fails, consumers can find businesses to replace or repair them. In general, it is more cost-effective to buy brand bathroom handrails.

The above are the advantages and disadvantages of bathroom handrails and purchasing skills. It is best to choose stainless steel for bathroom handrails, because bathroom handrails need to be used in the bathroom for a long time. Metal is a relatively active substance, and it is easy to rust and oxidize in a humid environment. Stainless steel bathroom handrails are not easy to be oxidized and rusted, so they are a better choice. The handrails in the bathroom also need to be replaced regularly and cannot be used all the time. It is best to replace it every five years to prevent aging of the bathroom handrails.
