Everyone should be afforded equal opportunities in each aspect of their lives, although at times this is not the case when it comes to entering public access buildings or getting a job in one of them. This is down to the properties not having the right disabled access or not having any at all. By not having the right measures in place you could be breaking the law and even turning away customers. Investing in a wheelchair ramp from us here at K5 will be the right move forward to including everybody, no matter how able they are.
Not having a wheelchair ramp at your public premises might very well be in breach of the Disability Discrimination Act which makes 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”. Breaking this law and actively discriminating against those that require wheelchair access could incur penalties of up to £25,000. The simple act of investing in one of our wheelchair ramps will avoid this and go a great length to making your building truly ‘public access’.
We have put together a selection of ramp solutions that include:
– AeroLight Ramps: Designed for use with all types of manual and electric scooters and wheelchairs.
– PerfoLight Ramps: Built using anodised aluminium, the PerfoLight Ramps are both incredibly strong and lightweight, making them easy to slide away and store.
Here at K5 Evacuation Chair we have the expertise to advise you on which wheelchair ramp will be best for your specific property and user needs. Whichever ramp solution you choose, the equal opportunities of anyone who enters or wishes to work with you will be ensured, allowing your building to remain easy and convenient for everyone to access.
