handraiLIT in use.

It was recently installed in the Wilfenberg tunnel on the high-speed Mannheim–Stuttgart line,  and also in the longest five tunnels of the Ulm–Wendlingen S21 subproject: The handraiLIT LED handrail from Rhomberg Bahntechnik.


This top product from the construction site and tunnel safety equipment specialist in the Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group is a modern, robust and inexpensive guidance system. The stainless steel handrail with integrated orientation lighting guarantees the highest level of safety. handraiLIT meets the most exacting demands with its optimal user-friendliness, low maintenance requirements and compliance with all relevant standards and guidelines.


Modern LED technology guarantees a long service life. The optional redundant operation and the protected integration of the lighting fixture in the handrail profile (impact strength IK10) ensures full and continuous illumination. The handrail can be fitted in existing and new tunnels, has an LED light strip permanently integrated into the housing and recess lighting and escape sign luminaires can be added without difficulty. handraiLIT has injury-free, seamless transitions and is quick and easy to assemble. No special tools are required. This product is so robust that it can be cleaned with a water pressure of up to 100 bar – an invaluable advantage in areas that are highly prone to soiling, such as railway tunnels. The guidance system has been tested in accordance with current EMC directives.


In addition to being used in tunnels, the handrail is also suitable for municipal or private projects such as underpasses, emergency staircases, schools and kindergartens, or hotels. The product’s quality was recently confirmed by Deutsche Bahn, which has assigned it its Q1 “Lighting” quality status.
