† Please note that the mounting height refers to the top edge of the rail and not the height of the fixing points. Horne grab rails are 32mm in diameter, therefore the fixing centres should be 664mm or 784mm above finished floor level.

Inclusive showers

Shower riser rails, aesthetically matching the grab rails, incorporate an Inclusive Design handset holder carriage mechanism with pull tab 'extender'.  These are available mounted directly to the shower panel or as a wall-mounted accessory for our dual-mode shower designs.

For public, self-service accessible and assisted showering / Changing Places facilities, we recommend our T108A2L and related shower models, with optional longer (2m) hose.  Our T1Y8A2L and related models include the riser rail in deep orange to enhance colour and tonal contrast perception for the visually impaired, including by neurological decline (e.g. dementia). Alternatively, dual-mode shower models with manual diverter valve, our T705 range, paired with a wall-mounted riser rail are also suitable for assisted showering in public facilities.  These meet Changing Places guidelines and are practical and intuitive. These models are also suitable for residential and acute care settings.

A further option, practical only for care settings, especially where space for shower provision may be limited, is our T605A2L and related dual-mode showers, paired with the white or deep orange wall-mounted riser rail.  These offer versatility for unsupervised and assisted showering, and feature an automatic flow diverter valve; when the hose is connected at the side of the panel the water flow automatically switches from the fixed shower head (unsupervised shower mode) to the handset, specifically to facilitate assisted showering. It is recommended that care providers control the use of the detachable hose and handset for assisted showering events.
