REQUIREMENT:

A new access point to the surgery was in construction; however, a variance in the concrete levels would prevent wheeled hospital beds using this walkway.
Therefore, a modular ramp was chosen as a cost-effective way to bridge the gap.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

CAD and technical drawings were designed by our specialist designer in-house. 

END RESULT:

A fully compliant ramp with a 1:15 gradient was installed with a few hours. 

The rapid installation allowed the new entrance to open within a quick turnaround time. 

The ramp included an access hatch to provide entry to the drain underneath.

FEATURES INCLUDED:

  • Infill Handrail - this product prevents users from climbing or falling through gaps.
  • Yellow Tread - this is a safety feature designed to help those with impaired vision identify the nose of the ramp. Additionally, it helps users distinguish any level changes.
  • Trombone Ends - these are added to the ends to prevent clothes catching.
  • Mesh Platform - the self-draining mesh allows water to pass through rather than collect on the surface.
  • Continuous Handrail - this handrail system ensures users always have support to hold onto.

EXTRA FEATURE INCLUDED:

  • Access Hatch  - A hatch opens allowing a person access to the underground services.
