Hospitals are changing and for the most part in a better way. Most modern hospitals are being designed in a way that promotes the feeling of airiness, with a clear emphasis on creating space, which is in complete comparison to the dark and dreary places they were before.
This emphasis on creating clean, airy, hygienic, open plan layout has caused hospital facilities managers to think about their internal spaces. More and more hospitals are choosing to install glass and bespoke stainless steel products to create less intimidating and easier to navigate hospitals.
Benefits of Installing Steel Handrails in Hospitals
Whether you choose to install your bespoke steel handrail on an entrance ramp, steps, corridors or a mezzanine platform, all handrails are by law required to comply with DDA regulations.
If your hospital spans 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.
Due to the nature of hospitals, and the age range of people that visit them, 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.
Another key aspect of hospital health and safety is general hygiene and cleanliness. Bespoke steel handrails can be coated with anti-microbial powder coating which makes it an extremely effective control against the spread of bacteria.
