Helping handrail / Handrail

Helping handrail
Helping handrail

It is hard work to carry heavy baggage in a building that cannot install elevators or escalators. However, if you use “Helping handrail”, it is an easy work to carry baggage. Unlike other conventional handrails, the “Helping handrail” resembles the capital letter “Y” when looked from the front. Therefore, you can stably carry baggage without dropping. The conveyor belts on each side and the triangular support in between them prevents baggage from dropping or slanting. The “Helping handrail” also functions as a handle, which is one function of the conventional stair railings, so it provides additional convenience when carrying baggage.
