ENTRO handrails can be flexibly adapted to all structural circumstances. Each handrail system is made precisely to the individual specifications.
A handrail makes an important contribution to preventing falls – it secures movement of people with reduced sense of balance and provides reliable support. Round handrails are especially easy and therefore safe to grip around. Coordination and force transfer are improved,
if the diameter of the handrail is adapted to the human hand. Handrails are used as an orientation system for people with impaired vision. Tactilely discernable signage also helps these people to orientate themselves.
Handrails provide a safe, secure grip in corridors and on stairs. Handrails with a diameter between 3 and 4.5 cm are particularly easy to grip. Round or rounded shapes enable secure gripping and effect transfer of gripping force.
Tactile information, for example, storey numbers, promote orientation and therefore the independence of the visually impaired. Both Braille and raised lettering should be used.
Signage facilitates orientation in the building. It should not only be discernible visually but also tactilely, so that the blind or people with highly impaired vision can also discern information.
Internationally established Braille is based on a six dot grid, with which any information can be represented for the blind.
