Wheelchair ramps are crucial pieces of equipment that enable individuals with a range of disabilities to access areas within their own home or in commercial properties, that would otherwise be out of bounds. Business owners that are planning to purchase wheelchair ramps could be forgiven for thinking that there is only one variety of ramp, in fact there are hundreds with many different properties that make each individual product ideal for a specific purpose. At K5 we supply a number of ramps, from lightweight telescopic varieties through to hardy rubber ramps.
When purchasing a new wheelchair ramp, the first thing to consider is where it is going to be used. Is it going to be placed indoors or outdoors? If the answer to this question is outdoors, then it is vital to purchase a rubber ramp that has plenty of grip, making it safe for use whatever the weather conditions. A metal ramp that is likely to become slippery is not only a hazard for those using wheelchairs, but for the wider public as well. Some varieties of metallic ramps may also become rusty, meaning that the appearance of the business is likely to be compromised if the wrong wheelchair ramp is chosen.
Fortunately, we at K5 understand that not everyone is as knowledgeable about wheelchair ramps as our experienced team. That is why we are on hand to help home and business owners to make the best choice based upon their specifications. Clients can find a comprehensive catalogue on our website, which includes images and thorough details about each of the products that we supply.
