Handrails

Safe access for patients, staff and visitors

Available in a range of profiles, materials and finishes; our selection of handrails and protective handrail equipment guarantees safe, stable and cost-effective access for all stakeholders.

Handrails

Designed to be easily grasped for ultimate stability & support, our selection of handrails can be used in corridors and stairwells in order to prevent injury by falling. Available with antimicrobial coating, our handrails can act as a strong line of defense against manual transmission.

Beyond reducing the likelihood of accident and injury, handrails act as a primary shield that protects walls and other surfaces from bumps, scrapes and abrasions.  They help healthcare organizations avoid unwanted repair costs, and since handrails are available in a wide range of colours, materials and styles, there’s no need to compromise on aesthetics.
