World leading handrails from Semperit

Vienna, Paris, New York, Singapore, Tokyo, London, Moscow or Brussels – wherever you are in the world, you can be sure that our handrails will work reliably around the clock. We export our products to more than 80 countries and are one of the world’s leading manufacturers of black and coloured handrails for escalators and moving walkways. Customers benefit from our extensive know-how and our proprietary processes.

Semperit can look back on a long tradition of handrail manufacturing. We have been producing handrails since 1955, making us one of the oldest manufacturers of its kind in the world. Our plants in Wimpassing (Austria), Shanghai (China) and Newnan, GA in the USA, ensure our handrails are available all around the world. Our priority is not only to deliver the highest quality and outstanding reliability but also to ensure our customers around the world are completely satisfied. Our international sales and service network meets our customers’ needs day in and day out. 

Certified quality

Our high-quality handrails provide outstanding reliability. They are manufactured using the latest technologies and nothing less than the highest quality raw materials.

All our production sites operate in compliance with the strict quality requirements that must be met for ISO 9001:2015 certification. We are also one of the few handrail manufacturers with both ISO 14001:2015 (environmental management standard) and ISO 45001:2018 (occupational health and safety management systems) certification.

All production facilities around the world operate in accordance with our strict quality standards. A test certificate is issued for each handrail, documenting that the dimensions are within the specified tolerances.

Extensive know-how and proprietary processes

Research and development is an essential and perpetual part of our success. We have the necessary know-how to plan, test and implement product developments in-house.

We use our superior knowledge of rubber and plastics for the benefit of our customers. A fully equipped technological laboratory in Europe, a team of chemists, engineers and process technicians, and the product development department ensure that we deliver state-of-the-art products. We have access to a large number of test rigs in Austria and China for testing our handrails on a wide variety of escalator systems. We combine state-of-the-art development methods with practical test runs to offer our customers and partners outstanding quality.

State-of-the-art production facilities

All key processes are handled in-house:

Compounding, extrusion, rubberization of fabrics, vulcanisation, finishing and packaging. Semperit was the first handrail supplier to implement a fully automated assembly process. All production locations use the same pressing technology to vulcanise the handrails. We achieve the required degree of precision and reproducibility by continually monitoring and improving our processes.
