REQUIREMENT:

Steps were hindering users with mobility impairments access to the playground. A ramp was required to overcome this physical barrier.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

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

 

END RESULT:

A Rapid Ramp was fixed against the wall, as shown.

Our proficient installers completed the installation within a three-day turnaround time.

FEATURES INCLUDED:

  •  Mesh Platform - self-draining mesh allowing 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.
  • Continuous Handrail - this handrail system ensures users always have support to hold onto.

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. Additionally, it helps users distinguish any level changes. 
  • Fine Underside Mesh - this mesh has small square holes, designed to stop litter from blowing underneath the ramp. 
  • A bespoke infill handrail was additionally installed along the wall.

FINE UNDERSIDE MESH:

I am really pleased with the work - they have done a brilliant job. Thanks a lot, Rapid Ramp!
