Handrails for hospitals, cARE HOMEs, veterinary practices or dENTAL SURGERies

DDA compliant handrails are required in many different areas of the healthcare industry, this includes entrance ramps, steps, walkways, corridors and terraces. Whether it be handrails for care homes, hospitals, children’s nurseries, veterinary practice or dental surgery’s, we have a solution. 


When choosing an appropriate handrail for the healthcare industry the main factors that need to be considered are security, contrast of colour to backgrounds, easy and safe grip continuous with as few handrail joints as possible, upper and lower handrails, easy to clean. These are all important for healthcare use. 

For the healthcare industry the Stargard PVC Handrail is the perfect choice. With 4mm (4,000 microns) tick PVC sleeving the handrail offers a “Warm to touch” feature which satisfies all the requirements. The handrail is suitable for both exterior purposes including entrance ramps and steps as well as interior corridor handrails. “Tactile” ends to the handrail are especially important for the partially sighted person.

Furthermore the Stargard handrail can also be installed with LED lighting which can add an extra safety aspect. By using “illumine” handrails, lights can be used to safely direct people in a poorly lit area.

Hospital and care home handrails are particularly important as patients/ resident’s mobility may be impaired through injury or illness and therefore they may rely heavily on the handrail as a support for easy access and navigation. Our handrails are highly suitable for this kind of environment with its impact protection. 

The Stargard handrail does not compromise on style whilst offering a practical handrail system ideal for use in hospital corridors, wards, SEN schools, care homes as well as many other public buildings. Our main goal is to offer assistance to those who need it as well as incorporating wall protection.
