Bemis to Launch Assist, Premium Seat that Eliminates Need for Wall-Mounted Rails

Features secure, built-in support arms and stylish, residential appearance

Sheboygan Falls, Wis. (January, 2023) – Bemis Manufacturing Company, a leading bidet and toilet seat manufacturer, announces its new Assist premium toilet seat, from the Bemis Independence line, will be introduced at the 2023 KBIS Show, taking place January 31 – February 2, in Las Vegas, NV.

This standard height plastic toilet seat features two built-in Support Arms that replace the need for wall-mounted brackets near the toilet. It fits both round and elongated toilet bowls, eliminating the guesswork associated with measuring and ordering the proper size seat. Assist also features Bemis’s industry-leading Commercial STAY•TITE Installation System that guarantees a never-loosens fit that provides security for all users.

Bemis’s research shows that many users may grab towel bars or use unstable toilet safety rails that lack the stability or strength to support their weight. Assist eliminates this concern with two support arms designed with a weight capacity of 250 pounds on each side. They provide the security and safety many people need during toileting.

With a weight limit of 500 pounds, Assist is ideal for a variety of users. The seat can be lifted for standing use and has a smooth surface that is easy to wipe clean.

“We’re pleased to introduce Assist, a premium seat, to our popular Bemis Independence line,” said TJ Stiefvater, vice president of marketing for Bemis. “This line offers solutions to our growing market of aging-in-place customers, those with special needs, and anyone needing security in the bathroom.”
