Steel Handrails for Cinemas

glass staircases for cinemas

For the owner or operator of a cinema complex, the importance of complying with relevant health and safety guidelines should be of paramount importance.

In order to appeal to a wide audience and meet local planning criteria, cinemas are being built in a multitude of different designs and layouts which may mean that complying with buildings regulations can be very tricky if you don’t seek the right advice.

Non-compliance with building control regulations could lead to extra costs to rework designs, hefty fines from the relevant authorities, or at the very worst, lead to accidents occurring due to poor designs, layouts or of sub-standard equipment.

A bespoke stainless steel handrail will help you comply with the regulations and provide your cinema facility with a clean modern look.


Installing a bespoke steel handrail in your cinema facility is not only a benefit but also a legal requirement.

Quite simply if your cinema spans across multiple floors, with multiple staircases, it is compulsory to have a steel handrail on both sides of the staircase, to protect people from falling from great heights as set out in the Approved Documents K&M.

Given the age range of people that visit a cinema, the handrail you choose to install must be suitable to be used by all types of people, especially those who are physically weak and have a poor grip.

This is why it is essential to seek the help of a specialist like Essential Projects, who can help you navigate the pitfalls of the building regulations and provide you with a stylish bespoke steel handrail system that is cost effective.
