Certificates and independent test reports for our AS1428.1 approved range are available to download by the links above. The reports were completed by a test lab fully accredited by NATA for testing products to AS1428.1 requirements.
Our products look different to conventional grab rails and we have been careful to ensure they comply with the relevant Australian standards. We have created this page to help explain the AS1428.1 requirements and to reduce confusion.
The full range of Avail Calibre Mod (not Ergo 25mm as diameter is below 30mm minimum) and Glance products are approved for use as Grab Rails in public buildings requiring AS1428.1 wheelchair and ambulant accessible bathrooms. They have been independently tested to over 1100N (110kg) in all directions by a NATA accredited SAI Global certified test lab in Australia and have been given a pass for all relevant clauses in AS1428.1. The dimensions and layouts shown in our install guide for DDA bathrooms reflect the requirements in AS1428.1 and have been independently assessed.
Australian Standard AS1428.1-2021 is required only for public buildings. For private residences/independent living, the users individual requirements must be considered. We recommend an occupational therapist come and assess your home to find the best solution for your needs.
AS1428.1 ‘Design for access and mobility’ was created to allow people with disability to travel more and live a more independent life outside their home. There are specific requirements for public bathrooms regarding the design and location of grabrails and shower seats.
