Take hold of new sales opportunities

on 22 January, 2018

Over the years the traditional handrail has gradually transformed from a simple element designed to provide safety and protection, to a design feature that can help enhance the overall look and feel of a hallway.

By stocking a variety of handrails in different styles, merchants can help installers keep up to date with growing consumer demands as well as increasing sales in 2018.

The addition of a handrail helps to reinforce the safety of a staircase, by creating additional points of contact at all times, ensuring good balance and safety.

According to research, 500,000 children under the age of four are injured in the home every year, of which 35,000 fall down the stairs. A handrail is a practical and secure solution to avoid unnecessary accidents on the stairs.

A stylish handrail can also enhance the look of a hallway, enabling installers to provide something visually impressive, with minimum mess and disruption to the household. Whether it is a commercial property or domestic living room, the devil is in the detail, so the addition of a handrail can ensure that those all-important details can be achieved to the highest possible standard.
