LED Illuminated Railings: Enhancing Safety and Style in Commercial Projects

When it comes to commercial projects, safety and aesthetics are both important considerations. One way to address both of these considerations is by incorporating our iRail LED illuminated railings. Illuminated railings provide a number of benefits that can enhance the overall project and make it stand out.


One of the main benefits of LED illuminated railings is that they provide additional safety. Railings are an important safety feature in commercial buildings, as they help to prevent falls and other accidents. However, traditional railings can be difficult to see in low light conditions, which can create a safety hazard. LED illuminated railings solve this problem by providing a source of light that makes the railing easy to see, even in dimly lit areas. This can be especially important in areas such as stairways, where visibility is crucial..


In addition to safety, LED illuminated railings can also enhance the aesthetics of a commercial project. These railings provide a unique and modern look that can make a building stand out. The light emitted by the LEDs can be customized to match the color scheme of the building, or to create a specific mood or ambiance. This allows architects and designers to incorporate the railings into the overall aesthetic of the building in a way that is both functional and visually pleasing.

Energy Efficiency

LED's are known for their energy efficiency, which is another benefit of using them in illuminated railings. LED lights use far less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs, and they also have a much longer lifespan. This means that the cost of maintaining the lighting in the railings will be significantly lower over time. The energy efficiency of LED lights can also help to reduce the overall cost of the project, making it more cost-effective for the building owners.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

LED illuminated railings are also relatively easy to install and maintain. The lights themselves are small and compact, which makes them easy to integrate into the railing design. They also have a long lifespan, which means that they will require less maintenance over time. This can be especially beneficial for commercial buildings, where the railings are likely to be used frequently and may be subject to wear and tear.

We have two options for our iRail LED illuminated Railings

iRail LED - Linear & Pods
iRail LED - Linear & Pods

iRAIL™ Linear
– is a LED illuminated version of our 1.5” dia. rail. iRAIL uses an ADA compliant roll-formed (monolithic) slotted rail, that houses a high-performance LED assembly. VIVA's iRAIL™ Linear uses a specially designed LED that can provide full-length coverage of illumination for whatever your rail run may be, compared to the traditional LED railing assemblies that were only available in preset section lengths. Lighting is available in warm or bright white with either a clear or diffused lens

iRAIL™ Pods
is a versatile illumination option to any type of tubular rail – round, square or rectangular, standard available is 1.5” or 2” dia. Housed in every pod is a cluster of high intensity LED, these pods can be spaced at 18” to 36” o.c. depending upon the amount of illuminance desired. Pods are a great option for retrofits, vandalism deterrent, and variable lighting levels. These Pods can also be placed in posts for vertical illumination.

Illuminating the way

LED illuminated railings are a great way to enhance the functionality and aesthetics of a commercial project. They provide additional safety, create a unique and modern look, and are energy efficient. Additionally, they are easy to install and maintain, which can make them a cost-effective choice for building owners. If you're working on a commercial project and looking for a way to make it stand out, consider incorporating LED illuminated railings. With their many benefits, they are sure to enhance the overall project and provide a positive impact for users and visitors.
