The law sets out a strict set of rulings that demand any property available to the public should be accessible to the disabled in equal measures. Disabled people should be able to enjoy the facilities with the same ease of use as non-disabled people do, and whilst a large part of this law defines indoor mobility, automatic doors, access ramps and elevators etc, it also includes the necessity for a monitored, disabled parking bay. The emphasis in that sentence is upon the word monitored, as failure to ensure these front-of-house spaces are not being abused can result in a crippling fine. Now, you can make that supervising process easier and more secure, with the ingenious HandiPark Barriers from K5!
These bright blue barriers are especially designed to ensure only disabled people are occupying the spaces they reserve, and they do this using a push-button initiative.
Installed into the parking space, straight on top of the tarmac, the barrier remains in an upright position until the signal for it to flatten, freeing up the parking space, is engaged. That signal comes from a button press on the related handheld device. Once the barrier has levelled, it will remain there until the car leaves the space, when it will return to its tall standing position automatically.
The chief advantages of installing these barriers on your commercial property today include:
- Protect the public – ensure your parking spaces aren’t being abused, and that disabled people have appropriate access to your premises.
- Protect yourself – don’t fall short of the guidelines dictated by the Disability Discrimination Act 1995; installing a HandiPark means you are monitoring your spaces appropriately.
- Easy and comprehensive solution – with an adhesive that binds the barrier to the road, or simple bolts if required, these barriers are by far and away the simplest, and cheapest way to keep your car park under control and comply with the law.
