​At Semperit we have been producing handrails since 1955, making us one of the world's longest established handrail producers still in existence. Today Semperit produces handrails at its production sites in Wimpassing in Austria, Shanghai in China and Fair Lawn in the USA.

 

Semperit exports its handrails to the majority of the countries in the world and is accordingly one of the leading international producers of black and coloured handrails for escalators and moving walkways. Semperit offers the right solution for every specification.

Semperit handrails offer you the highest quality and outstanding reliability. Our handrails are produced under application of the latest scientific technologies, and only high-grade and ISO certified raw materials are used in their production. We work in close co-operation with our customers to develop and produce handrails for every area of application - indoors or outdoors - and for the escalators and moving walkways of all manufacturers.

THE BEST CHOICE FOR ESCALATOR HANDRAILS

The first escalators were already equipped with handrails made of rubber. Up to 20 bending changes per one circulation of the escalator cause heavy loads for the handrail components. Assuming that a high-quality handrail circulates over 2,000,000 times before being exchanged, the handrail has to resist more than 40,000,000 bending changes. For this reason Semperit handrails all satisfy the following conditions:
