Campus & Co Shop
CREATING AN ACCESSIBLE SHOP ENTRANCE
A modular ramp to the shop.
The system needed to support various weight loads including shopping trolleys, wheelchairs, and pedestrians.
A modular ramp with a 1:15 gradient was installed with a few hours.
The rapid installation allowed the shop to reopen within a quick turnaround time.
- Mesh Platform - self-draining mesh allows water to pass through rather than collect on the surface.
- Trombone Ends - these are added to the ends of a Rapid Ramp to prevent clothes catching.
- Telescopic Legs - these can be adjusted to accommodate different threshold heights.
EXTRA 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 and any level changes.
- Step Unit - an ideal addition to any ramp installation, providing the access needed for able-bodied users. They can also be stand-alone units, independent of the Rapid Ramp System.
DO SHOPS HAVE TO PROVIDE DISABLED ACCESS?
The Equalities Act requires service providers (such as shops) to make reasonable adjustments for disabled people by removing barriers that could stop individuals from gaining access to goods and services. >Further information on the law around disabled access to shops<
