Access is a fundamental requirement of any property infrastructure, but for those with a disability, the act of accessing a property via the stairs can be a difficulty to say the least. To combat this, part III of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 was enforced in 2004 to make it illegal to “run a service or provide goods or facilities in a way which makes it impossible or unreasonably difficult for a disabled person to use the service or goods”. Subsequently, there are lots of different access solutions now on the market, with wheelchair ramps being among the most popular.
As specialist suppliers, we at K5 have a wealth of experience and knowledge surrounding the various products currently available in today’s competitive market. As an employer operating in a commercial or public property, it’s vital that you make reasonable adjustments to the property to ensure that people with disabilities can access and exit your property when needed. Whilst there are many products available, we at K5 have found the wheelchair ramp to be among the most effective solutions available.
Currently, we at K5 supply a wide range of wheelchair ramps which have become popular with wheelchair users and property owners alike. However, it’s essential that all property owners and employers in public and commercial properties fit an appropriate means of access for disabled people. Whilst lifts are convenient, in an emergency situation they cannot be used and therefore other means of exit should be provided, which is where the wheelchair ramp comes in. They are perfect for emergency situations and day to day activities, providing those with limited mobility the freedom of movement throughout a building.
As professionals in the industry, we feel confident that we can help identify the type of product which meets the specifications of those using your building.
