Before you start imagining your new lighting, let’s take a closer look at the benefits of lit stairs.

Safety First

Every year, more than 1 million people in the United States hurt themselves going up and down stairs. In fact, many of those individuals end up in the emergency room. Dark stairways are dangerous.

Lumenrail® lighted railing will brighten your steps after the sun goes down. Indeed, Lumenrail can be designed so that the darkest parts of a staircase get the most illumination. Thus, they’ll protect your employees, customers or family members. And these lights are particularly helpful to elderly people or those who have mobility issues. In addition, Lumenrail® is cool to the touch. With the added benefits of being non-toxic they are ideal for use around young children.

Energy Savings

With Lumenrail you don’t have to worry about significant increases in your utilities bills. That’s because LEDs are efficient. They require 90 percent less energy than their incandescent counterparts.

On top of that, they can last as long as 60,000 hours. This means, they can keep going for about 25 times as long as incandescent bulbs. And LEDs are extremely durable.

With this winning combination, you won’t have to replace them often, saving you money

If being environmentally friendly is a concern for you, you’ll be happy to know that LEDs can be recycled.
