Hinged Support Rails

Hinged support rails

Functional design

A hinged support rails offers support for limited strength and mobility. They increase safety in all areas of the barrier-free bathroom - whether at the washstand, WC or shower. An ergonomically designed, two-dimensional grip level enables a secure hold. Due to their dimensions, HEWI hinged support rails can be gripped optimally so that you can easily support yourself on them or pull yourself up. They can be supplemented by comfort elements, such as an upgrade kit for a toilet roll holder or an arm pad for a particularly comfortable support. Hinged support rails  can be folded up to the wall to save space. Fixed support rails are also available. The Duo folding support handle also has a round lower rail and thus provides optimum support when turning it sideways into the WC.

A wide range of materials (polyamide, stainless steel, chrome and WARM TOUCH) and designs offers design options, so that the support folding handle can be selected to match the sanitary accessories. The hinged support rails  are available as a mono version with one handle level or as a duo version with a second handlebar, which facilitates the transfer from the wheelchair to the toilet. The Duo hinged support rails can also be supplemented with a floor support. They are available in various lengths to meet country-specific requirements for barrier-free construction.

High-quality materials create a homely atmosphere that invites you to feel good. WARM TOUCH hinged support rails are particularly suitable for this purpose. WARM TOUCH is an innovative material that has a high-gloss surface like chrome and corresponds to the haptic properties of polyamide.

Upgrade kits such as arm pad or toilet roll holder and flush release via radio increase the comfort. The folding support handle is made of high-quality, satin-finished stainless steel.

System 900

Sophisticated functions

The System 900 folding support rail is available in various configurations - from the minimalist mono folding support rail to the fully equipped duo folding support rail with toilet roll holder and radio-controlled WC flush release. The System 900 hinged support rails have a maintenance-free brake. This dampens the lowering of the folding support handle. The spar can be moved up and down with little effort. If the angle is greater than 45°, the support folding handle remains in any position and can be lowered or folded towards the wall with little force. From an angle of 45°, the tie bar automatically lowers gently. The bearing of the joint is wear-free, maintenance-free and free of play and guarantees smooth running of the support folding handle. A defined stop prevents the support folding handle from hitting the wall. The hinged support rails are designed to provide extreme stability. An additional stiffener increases safety and provides reliable support.
