INSERT LED handrail downlighter.

The cost-effective and easy way to install handrail lighting.
For new and retrofit applications

LED handrail downlighter: INSERT for cost efficient installations

Above all INSERT is tough, waterproof and vandal resistant.

A compact, high-performance fixture,  cost efficient whilst offering the widest choice of beam spreads.

INSERT can be configured with any of the PRO S lens options, from  14- 94 degrees.

Install INSERT coupled with the optimum PRO S  lens at spacing’s to suit the required light levels and uniformity. As a result there will be less fixtures, no unwanted hot spots and greatly reduced energy consumption / running costs.

Consequently choosing the right lens ensures compliance in intensity and light distribution, whilst  reducing the number of fixtures required for each project. A typical installation consumes 1.5 – 2 watts per metre.

INSERT is waterproof to IP 67. Manufactured in Marine Grade 316 Stainless Steel and hence provides excellent corrosion resistance. Alternative material options are available.


The handrail tube is the perfect conduit to run wires, house terminations  and install INSERT LED handrail downlighter.

In order to install INSERT, drill and tap a M16 x 1 hole, connect wires and screw in.   The body features a discreet shoulder in order to prevent total insertion.

As a result the installation is a  positive mechanical fit with an impressive resistance to vandal attack.

In order to achieve asymmetric projection across the walkway or stair, install the handrail at a rotated position.

LED Handrail drivers and Emergency

Last but not least the choice of LED Handrail Driver.

Above all else safety has to be the main concern and on this basis the choice is either Constant Current or Constant Voltage.

Constant Current

Series connection. The easiest circuit to install with INSERT’s connecting to each other with a single wire return.

The driver provides a constant amperage, but as the number of INSERT’s increases so must the voltage, by nominally 3 volts per unit. In order to comply with SELV we recommend Class 2 drivers at a maximum output of 48volts d.c.. As a result  this means a maximum of 15 INSERT’s per driver.

See Constant Current Drivers>

Constant Voltage

Parallel / Series connection. A 24 volt d.c. supply requiring Dc-Dc converters in order to power up to 6 INSERT’s per converter.

The driver provides a constant voltage of 24 volts d.c resulting in compliance with SELV and the connection of any number of INSERT’s, limited only be cable loss.

See Constant Voltage Drivers>

See d.c.-d.c. converters>


We provide 3hour Maintained battery back up for 24volt Constant Voltage operation

In order to operate on UPS Emergency systems we can provide A.C. drivers that will operate on a d.c. voltage as well
