Thanks to the modular product range the color handrail system offers many and diverse possible combinations, enabling solutions that are precisely orientated to individual requirements. The diameter of the System color tubular design is optimally matched to the human hand and can therefore be gripped easily and securely. The pleasantly warm polyamide surface increases gripping comfort.
Apart from preventing falls, handrails are also used as an orientation and guide system for people with impaired vision. Highly contrasting design and tactile aids amplify the effect. The tactile aid can be attached to the handrail, not only with Braille but also with raised lettering.

A large selection of components enables the handrail to be adapted flexibly to the structural circumstances. All elements are made to fit precisely. System color is available with 40 mm and 33 mm diameter.
Handrails must stand out in rich contrast to the background, so that they can be used as an orientation aid by people with impaired vision. The extensive choice of colours offered by System color enables highly contrasting design, matched to the building's colour concept. Detailed information on visual contrast and calculation of the light reflection value (LRV) is available here.
