When architect David Reich, who was dealing with a medical condition that limited his mobility, went looking for a handrail to install in his home to ease his mobility challenge his search for a sturdy and attractive solution proved fruitless. There was simply nothing on the market that combined strength and beauty with ease of installation. In the end his project took 6 months at an enormous cost.
Promenaid handrails were created to resolve mobility challenges with style and ease of installation.
After this ordeal David realized that the ideal product, in addition to providing mobility support and preventing falls, would be cost effective, comply with all levels of building codes, and install rapidly to minimize disruption. Kell Warshaw, an industrial designer and seasoned inventor as well as David’s nephew had an idea how to do it: extruded and anodized aluminum railing incorporating a continuous channel, and brackets with cam-shaped heads that would clip into the channel with a quarter turn. David offered to invest the seed money to prove the concept if Kell would handle the product development.
The simple concept turned out to be not so simple, but about a year later Kell had a prototype that worked flawlessly, looked sharp, and was so novel that he was able obtain a patent for the invention. The result, after four years of further development, is the patented Promenaid continuous handrail system.
Promenaid products are the world’s first handrails combining stylish design, strength, speed and versatility that are suitable for any home, business or public building.

I recently ordered and received three 3' stairway rails. I LOVE them! They were installed today as I'm having hip replacement surgery in a few weeks. Thanks so much for this beautiful product, they were worth every penny!!
I appreciate the help and I’m sure I will find more applications for your product. I own several properties. The stellar engineering and simplicity that went into the design of your product is pure genius, and fun to work with.
I love my handrails. I have 3 of them. 3ft, 4ft and 6ft. Because of the handrails, l feel a lot safer when I’m walking up and down my staircases and I’ve actually gotten compliments on them!
My wife had knee surgery so I needed to install a handrail going down to the family room since we never had one. The handrail was easy to install and is very sturdy. The quality of the product is excellent and my wife is happy that I installed it so that she can get down the one step into the family room without the fear of falling. A great product!!!!
Just what I was searching for to install horizontally on an interior hallway to provide a bit of a safety rail for elderly person. Looks fantastic without that commercial appearance. Well designed and very easy to install.
