Note: Handrails need to be easily identified and located for support and wayfinding and should be selected in a colour that has a Light Reflectance Value (LRV) that is 30 points different from the surrounding surface. All Gradus handrail colours have been measured to provide LRVs in order to provide the specifier with the information required to ensure a suitable visual contrast is achieved.
