More and more building and interior designers are making the switch from the traditional to the modern, incorporating LED handrails into their design fit-outs. And once you see the finished product, it’s easy to appreciate why. They’re incredibly eye-catching, even when the installation is subtle, providing an innovative lift to any commercial building, inside and out.
There are multiple types of handrails available, all finished in a range of styles to complement your commercial facility perfectly. Traditional stained oak bannisters look beautiful wrapped around internal staircases. And powder-coated stainless steel handrails provide a safe and durable option to exterior balconies and walkways.
They certainly make an incredible addition to any premises bringing older buildings into the now with a modern look, or providing much-needed lighting to darker areas or walkways where enhanced illumination is key.
We can specify internally & externally for locations such as stairwells, walkways, offices, balconies, foot/road bridges to bring you the latest in balustrade handrail lighting design.
There is much more to LED handrails than just their aesthetic; they also play an important role when it comes to safety.
In applications such as staircases, it is a legal requirement to provide a handrail running on one side for support (in some instances, both sides). By opting for LED handrails, you’re not only providing that support, but you also illuminate stairs and walkways, making them easier to recognise and use – particularly in darker-lit areas.
In the event of a main power supply failure, LED handrails can work exceptionally well as emergency lighting too. An integrated 3-hour battery system for backup will ensure continuous lighting along escape routes such as corridors and stairways, supporting the safe exit of occupants from the building.
Our battery backup power kits conform to British Standard 5266, operating automatically and illuminating exit routes to a sufficient safety level.
With energy costs constantly rising, anyone involved in facilities management is wise to consider an efficient power source.
Consuming less energy than fluorescent or halogen bulbs, an LED installation won’t cost as much to run as a traditional lighting solution.
Whether it’s a certain ambience you’re after, an increased safety aspect across your premises or a saving on energy costs, installing LED handrails just makes sense. It’s time to bring your commercial space to life and protect your building and its occupants – whatever and whoever they are. Here’s how LED handrails work in a variety of settings:
Illuminating bump rails along corridors and on staircases
Using IP-rated waterproof lighting solutions as indoor grab rails for extra support
Installing along ramps, stairways and around lecture theatres
