  • shower grab bars

    ...hello all. i'm looking to install grab bars for a fiberglass shower stall. the stall has
    unusual walls. they appear to protrude out approximately 3/4 inch or so away from the wall. if i were to attach a grab bar i would be fastening through this void to a solid wall behind the fiberglass surround. is there a preferred type of fastener for this application? i'm afraid to drill through because i don't know what type of anchor to use in this situation. perhaps there is a type of 'bushing' of sorts to install to keep the surround from cracking when tightening? i hope someone has some ideas. sorry no pics. i also hope i made it understandable too. thanks in advance.

    Is the surround already installed & the room finished?

    Thanks.

      You need to use a product like this to install grab bars onto a fiberglass shower. Just make sure you know exactly where to drill your holes first.

            Me personally...I would never install grab bars on a fiberglass shower enclosure.
