As a business owner, whether it’s a small store in a village or an award winning restaurant in London, you should be making a conscious effort to make sure that your property is accessible to all. New properties take access into consideration during the planning and building but with an older building, it can be difficult. One way to allow access for all potential customers is by installing wheelchair ramps as this not only gives those with a disability freedom to access any part of any building, but it also makes it easier for those with pushchairs and buggies.
Since the introduction of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) in 1995 it has been a requirement for businesses – where possible – to make suitable adjustments so those that suffer from a disability are able to enter and get around the property. Unfortunately, due to planning issues and the construction of some properties, this hasn’t always been possible, but for those situations here at K5, we’ve been able to help.
For the last six years we’ve been providing companies nationwide with a wide range of lightweight but durable wheelchair ramps, which are easy to use and are suitable for wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
At K5 we stock a range of ramps, from threshold ramps which make it possible for those in a wheelchair to get into properties that have a large step at the entrance, through to portable platform ramps, which are ideal if your entrance backs out onto a busy street. Not only can these be moved when not needed but they also come in various sizes.
There really is no excuse anymore for any business anywhere in the UK not to provide adequate access for wheelchairs or electric scooters. So if you’re concerned that your business isn’t doing all it can to make access easy for all customers, visit our website to view and buy one of our wheelchair ramps.
