First-aid Handrail / Emergency

First-aid Handrail

Nowadays, with the amount of buildings expanding as well as floors increasing, immediate self-protection appears to be much more vital than panic-long-waits.
This illuminated handrail is for emergency use, for example, during a fire or an earthquake. The product can operate on its own or, if desired, it can be combined with other components to increase the structural form.
The concept of the design takes illumination, dehydration and emergent-whistling into consideration, which prioritizes convenience and safety for the users.
