Illuminated handrails are functional fixtures that integrate lighting into guardrails to provide illumination for enhanced safety and ambiance. From lighting interior staircases, balconies and ramps to exterior spaces such as bridges, walkways and parks, illuminated handrails are an architectural element integral to a robustly designed environment. They not only offer the added benefit of utilitarian lighting but also enable architects to highlight striking architectural features with fully integrated handrail lighting systems. LED handrails leverage the exceptional energy efficiency, photometric performance, durability and reliability of LED technology. LED handrail systems include interconnected LED modules designed to accommodate maximum run lengths and impact-resistant acrylic diffusers regressed within heavy duty stainless steel or extruded aluminum housings. Available in symmetrical and asymmetrical light distribution patterns, LED handrails provide high performance photometry with unmatched uniformity across a wide range of interior and outdoor applications.
