Mounting a handrail to a tile wall.

What's a good way to attach a handrail to a wall consisting of tile on drywall? Assuming we want it to stay in place and don't need to worry about any 220 volt electrical requirements, what's the foo brain trust recommend?

Wet location?
Are we talking bathroom type handrail (aka grab bar) or traffic use?

Generally... locate studs/furring and drill it. If it's a wet location, you could seal the penetrations. Then just screw everything in?

Ruben would first mount the wall to the handrail. Sorry, thought this was the "What would Ruben do (WWRD™)?" thread.

It's an office bathroom, and we're hoping to avoid any wacka wacka puffa puffa for anyone that needs it.
Thanks cbad for the video, that should be what we need to do. And I know who to ask if we want to install a flat screen tv with cable and internet connections in there.

If the studs aren't quite where you need them, install a nice looking back board to the wall using the studs then secure the handrail to the board.

You guys are all in left field.

Drill a 1/2" hole with a Milwaukee Hole Hog,put 3/8" bolt through wall(aprox.5") to other room,finish with 3/8"washer and nut.

You're welcome.

You're supposed to built the room around the handrail.

Well, don't forget to just go ahead and try to meet some semblance of ADA standard with the rails. If you want, send me a PM and I'll try to scan you the ADAAG handbook section relating to it next week.

Drill it. Bop it. Twist it. Then ride it.

The wall in the video isn't tile. If your wall is tile you will need to break through the glaze on the tile with a hammer and center punch. Remember you're just trying to punch a nick in the glaze to give the drill something to bite into. A carbide masonry bit will get you through the tile after the glaze is chipped. Drill the tile with a 1/4" bit. Then use the appropriate drill bit for he supplies screws.

Not to worry pilgrim.
If no motor uses the "hole hog"he'll go through that tile wall like pee through a screen.

3 seconds with a countersink bit and your worries about tile glaze are over. After that the only worries that arise are those about how one could possibly prepare this delicious bass I caught for the OP.

No, it's not. Handrails are required to be able to withstand a 250 lb force in any direction. The chances of the epoxy being applied properly giving it that kind of strength are slim.

It was meant as a reply to the duct tape comment, not a realistic one.

You guys are doin' it rrrong!

U need a high powered Elk Hunting Rifle... Fill it up with target punching ammo and shoot at the desired location. Then screw in a big nut-headed Tapcon using a beefy manly drill. And remember, if your drill if weak, get a new one!
