ELCOMA Compliance Standards
The Highest Safety Standards
All Elcoma bars are fabricated to meet the requirements of ASTM #f446-85 with 1-1/2" wall clearance and comply with ANSI A117.1-1986, making buildings accessible to handicapped. Elcoma grab bars and safety rails have a wall-to-bar nominal offset distance of 1-1/2" (38mm). All 1-1/4" (32mm) and 1-1/2" (38mm) diameter welded stainless steel bars have been designed and tested to withstand up to 900 lbs. (408kg) of downward load when properly installed. This exceeds HUD, FHA, VA, ADA and other federal, provincial, and local codes.
