Importance of Handrail Braille Sign

At the beginning of the 20th century, a new architectural design method, barrier-free design, emerged in the field of architecture due to the call of humanitarianism. It uses modern technology to build and transform the environment, providing convenient and safe space for the disabled, and creating an environment of "equality and participation". At the beginning of the 1930s, facilities for the disabled were built in Sweden, Denmark, and other countries. In 1961, the United States formulated the first Accessibility Standard in the world. Since then, Britain, Canada, Japan, and other dozens of countries and regions have successively formulated relevant laws and regulations. Accessibility facilities refer to safety facilities that are convenient for the disabled, the elderly, and other people with limited mobility or visual impairment.

For the full implementation of barrier-free facilities and the people with visual impairment who are important protected groups, the handrail braille sign is particularly important.

The braille information is implanted on the escalator handrail or elevator handrail. So the visually impaired people can know what area the corresponding floor is by touching the handrail when going up and down. Moreover, handrail braille signs can not only be implanted with braille information but also deepen the users’ impression of the signs by changing the materials to make the users feel differently.

Handrail braille sign is an indispensable part in public places such as hospitals, subways, parks, museums, etc. As a barrier-free designer, our company, Wuyi Xiongchang Hardware Manufacturing Co., Ltd, will strive to create a safe and comfortable modern living environment full of love and care.
