Make any area accessible.
Businesses with steps are missing out on valuable customers that use a wheelchair, and wheelchair users are being left out of premises. It is important (and the law) to make sure everyone can access your business, and wheelchair ramps are a low-cost solution to steps and raised entrances. The Australian Human Rights Commission received hundreds of complaints every year, many of which are related to the accessibility of business places. Save yourself the lawsuit and include all your customers by ensuring uneven entrances are fitted with wheelchair ramps.
It isn’t just corporations that should consider making their entrances accessible. Residences and public spaces should also be fitted with wheelchair ramps to ensure that wheelchair users can cross the threshold safely and easily. Rubber ramps cover door frames and gaps that make it difficult or impossible for wheelchairs and prams to pass over. Non slip grippy surfaces and bevelled edges all around are added touches on Matshop threshold ramps to keep people even safer.
People in wheelchairs often experience difficulty entering buildings – something that non-wheelchair users usually take for granted! From having to fully research venues before going anywhere to being flung out of their chairs when said venues don’t live up to their accessibility claims, the problem with inaccessibility is endless. It is so easy for businesses to make themselves accessible now. Adding a ramp to your entrance takes a few minutes but will open doors for years.
As well as making your businesses more accessible, wheelchair ramps help carts and commercial wheeled traffic access your building. Other than saving delivery men from leaving their packages out of sight, providing wheeled access to your building keeps your business running smoothly. Choose from a variety of thicknesses: 25mm, 32mm, 44mm & 55mm.
