Disabled Access To Shops, London
WHITE POWDER-COATED FINISH ON A SHOP DISABLED RAMP
As part of the shop refurbishment project, an access ramp was required to provide disabled access.
At the time, only steps were leading up to the store.
A modular disabled ramp and step unit replaced the existing steps. The systems were powder-coated white to colour match the building.
The customer was pleased to note the cleanliness of the installation on the newly refurbished car park.
A key benefit of the modular ramp is that it leaves no messy building work, allowing for a professional finish.
- 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.
- Standard Continuous Handrail - this handrail system ensures the users always have support to hold onto.
EXTRA FEATURES INCLUDED:
- Yellow Tread - this is a safety feature designed to help those with impaired vision identify the nose of the ramp and helps users distinguish any level changes.
- Step Unit with Infill Handrails - an ideal addition to any ramp installation, providing the access needed for able-bodied users. Infill handrails prevent users from climbing or falling through gaps.
- White Powder Coated Finish - ramps are powder-coated to create a durable finish that is tougher than conventional paint.
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
Rapid Ramp comes in black as standard however you can choose a colour to match your requirement.
All we require is your RAL colour number. A colour chart can identify this.
The ramp system has been well received and we will contact again if there is a need in the future.
