Ligature resistance, infection control, and multi-faceted mounting were at the forefront when designing the GB730 Ligature Resistant Grab Bar. Throughout the design process, we optimized our grab bar to prevent water from trapping in any part of the unit. The open end was meticulously designed with radiused edges to deter ligature, and the unit will self-drain when mounted horizontally in a negative 1 degree or greater slope. When mounted level, the GB730 can easily be wiped clean of any water with a single swipe of a cloth. For infection control, there are no drain holes or internal gutter system in the design. Our symmetrical (non handed) design allows for mounting the grab bar in any direction; vertical, horizontal, angled, or 90-degree back to back corner installations are all possible using the same grab bar. This eliminates the need to buy specific and expensive vertical or corner grab bars for multi-purpose installations. Because our grab bars meet heavy duty standards for psychiatric/ behavioral applications, mounting should be accommodated to solid blocking in the walls in conjunction with pick-free caulk.
The GB730 Ligature Resistant Grab Bar comes powder coated matte white, includes tamper resistant fasteners and is offered in 5 different lengths: 18”, 24”, 36”, 42” and 48”.

Jason TerranovaOPTIMUS ARCHITECTUREI greatly appreciate the assistance the team at BSP has provided us throughout the course of design and into construction.

Chief Executive OfficerBanner HealthThe team at Behavioral Safety Products has been a terrific partner in our efforts to update our older behavioral health inpatient units. Many of the units have dated spaces that have odd fixtures and required retrofitting to be installed. They have helped us on multiple projects and even worked with their distributor to speed up delivery time in order for us to meet internal deadlines. BSP has been a pleasure to work with and a great resource for our facilities team.
