The Importance of Hygienic Handrails

Handrails are a product which is often taken for granted in a building, yet they have a very important purpose. Not only do they provide support, but they also hep with the non-transference of germs.

Bacteria can survive on hard surfaces for months and as handrails are touched by several people, they are continuously available to transmit germs.

Strading-hygienic is a stainless-steel handrail with an anti-bacterial and antimicrobial coating. An antimicrobial is an agent that kills microorganisms and stops further growth. The coating provides a passive barrier against all bacteria and viruses, thereby reducing the risk of spreading.

Strading-hygienic is a high-quality handrail that virtually removes this risk completely. The coating does not need to be re-applied or “topped up”, it is a continuous protection 24/7. The coating makes strading-hygienic the perfect handrail for all types of location. Hospitals, care homes, schools and retail shops are all places you might find strading-hygienic.

SG Systems have further enhanced their Sentinel stainless steel and Strading-hygienic range of handrail and balustrade systems, with the addition of a new handrail coating that has been specifically developed for healthcare and care home environments. Removing the risk of cross contamination in public buildings is important, this is why we have created a handrail that does just that.

This system incorporates a stainless-steel tubular handrail which is coated with this antimicrobial finish. The stainless-steel is corrosion free and the coating is available in a wide range of colours. It can be fitted to any of our other product ranges, such as Sentinel, Stargard, and Citadel.
