SAFETY MEETS STYLE WITH THREE NEW MODERN-DESIGNED MOEN® HOME CARE® DECORATIVE GRAB BARS

Oakville, Ontario... As the popularity of modern styling continues to grow, Moen® Home Care® introduces three new modern-designed grab bar collections to ensure homeowners don't have to compromise style to create a safe bath. The new 90°™, Iso™ and Arris™ Designer Grab Bars not only meet safety requirements -- but the style, size, finish and installation needs of homeowners.

"Research continues to show that Baby Boomers plan to age in place*... and the most frequent modification is adding grab bars**," said Anny Ang, accessories manager, Moen Canada. "Our three new modern designs provide a perfect match to Moen bathroom suites -- so they can add safety without sacrificing style."

90° Decorative Grab Bars
New 90° Decorative Grab Bars feature a sleek, square, modern design that is a perfect match to the 90° Bath Collection. Available in lengths ranging from 12 to 36 inches, the 1 1/4-inch-diameter grab bars are featured in Chrome and Brushed Nickel finishes.

Iso Decorative Grab Bars
With an infusion of industrial elements, the telescoping design of the Iso grab bar provides a modern, minimalist touch in the bath. Available in lengths ranging from 12 to 36 inches and featured in Chrome and Brushed Nickel finishes, the 1 1/14-inch-diameter Iso grab bar is an ideal match for the Moen Level® and Destiny® bath collections. Iso grab bars feature grip pads for enhanced safety and security.

Arris Decorative Grab Bars
New Arris Decorative Grab Bars offer signature styling with cylindrical, geometric shapes and distinct 90-degree angles to create an iconic, modern look in the bath. The new bathroom collection offers perfectly matching 1 1/4-inch-diameter grab bars in lengths ranging from 12 to 36 inches and each is available in Chrome and Brushed Nickel finishes.

"While the exquisite aesthetics of the new grab bars will entice homeowners and designers, there are often concerns on grab bar installation," remarked Ang. "That includes liability concerns, as well as the time and money it takes to complete such a job."

To ease these concerns and provide easy, versatile and secure installation, the new Moen Home Care Decorative Grab Bars can be installed with the Moen SecureMount™ system. Each grab bar features a SecureMount flange that allows the grab bar to be mounted at any angle on the wall -- making it easier for homeowners to mount the grab bar securely into a stud for safe installation.

Additionally, the grab bars are compatible with Moen Home Care SecureMount Anchors. The innovative D-shaped anchor makes it possible to quickly, easily and securely install a grab bar anywhere on the wall, with one stud or no studs -- in less than 10 minutes. Since studs are not necessary, homeowners or installers save time, materials and labour: simply drill a hole in the wall, install the anchor system and mount the grab bars.

To ensure the grab bar installation is secure, independent testing was conducted by CSA and NAHB laboratories to exceed ADA, ASTM, ANSI and CSA standards. In addition, the SecureMount anchors held up to 1,500 pounds during static load testing when installed in 5/8-inch drywall with marble. The Anchors can also be installed into fiberglass tub wall surrounds as thin as 1/8 inch in thickness as well as a variety of additional substrates including marble, tile, drywall and fiberglass up to 1 1/2 inches thick -- without requiring studs or costly blocking.

Moen Home Care Designer Grab Bars and SecureMount Anchors are ADA compliant, support 300 pounds and offer a limited lifetime warranty.***
