Providing access to parts of a home or building is crucial in ensuring the quality of life of wheelchair users is not diminished. There are a whole host of access solutions available, but not all are ideal for every situation. However, telescopic wheelchair ramps offer a level of versatility that makes them suitable for a whole range of uses. Those provided by firms such as K5 provide unrivalled levels of accessibility for users, whilst ensuring compact storage within the home or vehicle. They are lightweight and easily transportable, ensuring ease of use and manoeuvrability for individuals.
These telescopic wheelchair ramps can be used at any lengths, with some being able to be adjusted up to 3m long. They can therefore offer exceptional safety of access even in areas of long distances or significant height differences. The perforated non-slip surface provides plenty of grip in the full range of weather conditions that might be experienced.
Telescopic ramps should conform to Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) legislation. These regulations promote the civil rights of disabled people – a cause that is championed by K5. This is reflected in the quality and affordability of the ramps that they supply.
The Perfolight range of telescopic and combi wheelchair ramps supplied by the team at K5 are designed and crafted from anodised aluminium with safety and functionality in mind. The durable surface results in a lightweight yet strong access ramp, offering extreme compactness for handling and storage.
They are considered an excellent choice for providing a bridge over a threshold that has unequal levels on each side. Their low kerbs and long bevel sides greatly increase the clearance area of scooters and power chairs as well. For anyone who is seeking a lightweight and easily portable access ramp that can be extended in length over a substantial distance then telescopic wheelchair ramps from K5 could be just the solution for you.
