Hold on to your sense of security with grab bars from Stair Ride.
Since 1965, Philadelphia-area residents have relied on Stair Ride for accessibility and mobility solutions to help them continue living in their own homes safely and independently. One of the simplest ways of making a home safer and easier to move around as its residents get older is the smart placement of well-designed, securely installed and unobtrusive grab bars.
Grab bars help compensate for the natural decline of balance, coordination and strength that comes with aging and can be especially helpful if you are recovering from surgery, an accident or a chronic condition. Stairways and bathrooms are among the most frequent locations for grab bars, which come in a variety of attractive designs and finishes.
When placed and installed by Stair Ride experts, grab bars can be an important and affordable part of making you feel comfortable and independent in your home.
Stair Ride has been helping people hold on to their independence by providing grab bars in Philadelphia.

Frequently asked questions
Q: Can I purchase grab bars and install them myself?
A: The ability of a grab bar to help compensate for a resident’s diminished strength or balance is almost entirely dependent on secure, professional installation. At Stair Ride, our professional installers use hardware and mounting techniques developed by WingIts, an ADA compliance leader known for providing The World’s Strongest Fasteners.®
Q: Will grab bars make my home look less attractive?
A: Stair Ride offers grab bars with a variety of finishes, including stylish contemporary options that minimize obtrusiveness without compromising your safety and security. If you happen to use an interior designer, Stair Ride is also happy to collaborate with them.
Q: If I am having a lift, ramp or barrier-free shower installed, are grab bars still necessary?
A: Grab bars often add an extra layer of safety and security to other home access improvements. During your free home evaluation, Stair Ride professionals will suggest the most efficient combination of solutions, considering your personal needs and the existing design of your home. We provide custom solutions for every customer.
Q: Where should toilet grab bars be placed?
A: According to ADA guidelines, the grab bars should be placed on the sidewall closest to the toilet. This ensures that this will assist people with sitting or standing, and in shifting from a wheelchair over to the toilet seat. There should be a grab bar placed on the wall behind the toilet as well.
