Independent living aids manufacturer Evekare has unveiled a new collection of bath grab bars that have integrated night lights for extra safety.
“The lights on this patented product are sound-activated and will allow users to safely navigate their bathroom in the dark, while providing a support handle where it is needed,” the company says.
This will add to Evekare’s already expansive range of other grab bars, which includes standard grab bars with concealed or exposed mounts, as well as ABS grab bars that glow in the dark.
Grab bars are often maligned by designers and architects for not seeing any innovation. In recent years, however, more manufacturers have devoted efforts to increase the design of the category.
Launched earlier this year at the 2020 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, the grab bar range is available in five finishes, including polished stainless steel, matte black, white, gunmetal, and gold. The products are manufactured from stainless steel and can support up to 550 pounds. It will be available in 12-, 16-, 18-, 24 and 36-inch lengths.

Products in the new grab bar collection feature sound-activated LED night lights that turn on in low light to allow for easy and safe navigation of rooms. The grab bars can be installed horizontally, vertically or diagonally. “Install this unique product in bathrooms, toilets, or other locations where extra support is necessary,” the company says, adding that the range is fixed to the wall using screws and features cover plates to conceal the flanges for a cleaner and stylish appearance.
Evekare is an Australian-based company that manufactures and supplies independent living products across the globe. The company’s product range includes bath and toilet aids, grab bars, shower screens, and faucets.
