Fire indicator / handrail

Fire indicator
Fire indicator

This temperature-sensing handrail is applied with thermo-sensitive material on the surface. When a fire occurs, the color of the stair handrail changes with the tempature accordingly, which allows people to quickly tell the condition of each floor and choose the right way to escape. This design does not only facilitate the escape, but it also help rescue workers identify the fire position.
