As a green company and veteran / minority / woman / family owned company located just outside of the Twin Cities in Hugo MN, Safe T Bar Inc. manufactures and packages all of our grab bar products right here in the USA.
In 1977, founder of Safe T Bar Inc. Gary Markovich (Veteran of the USA), was approached by the Minnesota State Consul for the Physically Challenged and the ADA (American Disability Association) to engineer a true non-slip surface. Their interests were to design a grab bar that had a true non-slip surface and would exceed current codes and become a standard non-slip grab bar. Other grab bar companies offered their nonslip surfaces, however, often when hands were wet & soapy the surface would become slippery. This was the beginning of Safe T Bar Inc. back in 1979, and the beginning of our patented true nonslip surface, Grip Tight™.
In 2008, Safe T Bar Inc. added a line of toilet partitions, working with toilet partition manufacturers who have been leaders in the industry for over 60 years.
We have remained focus on the safety of the design of our grab bars and we use the highest level of safety and quality materials in our products. Safe T Bar Inc.’s Grip Tight™ grab bars are often requested and have replaced many competitors bars by customers whose current grab bar products do not meet their safety or quality needs. Our trademark Grip Tight™ is a true non-slip surface and is requested often.
We often recommend installing safety grab bars as towel racks as they are generally strategically placed near the tub or shower areas already. In terms of slipping, falling and injury, the bathroom is the most dangerous place in the home and standard towel racks and even certain grab bars are not designed to support the human body. One can imagine the unfortunate results if a person was to fall in the bathroom having reached for a towel rack for support only to have it pull out from the wall and come crashing down. Injuries such as a dislocated hip, shoulder or worse, broken bones have resulted from instances such as this. Unfortunately, grab bars are often thought of post-injury, for the physically challenged or elderly, instead of having them installed as a prevention to injury. Each individual is capable of slipping and falling, no matter the age, which can lead to injury or other physical challenges. Prevent this scenario in your home or business by installing our Grip Tight™ safety grab bars.
Our grab bars are designed to enhance the safety in your business or home and will help extend your living independence. A grab bar is not just a grab bar when it’s a Safe T Bar Inc. Grab Bar. Safe T Bar Inc. looks forward to the opportunity of enhancing the safety of your home or business.
