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.
