It is often difficult for people with mobility aids, such as wheelchairs and walking frames, to access properties with stairs or steep inclines, including shops and even homes with steep driveways. Because of this, having access ramps is vitally important, especially for commercial properties who may end up limiting their customer-base due to their lack of accessibility.
If you are looking for a way to improve the disability access to your property, Meadow Drives and Patios can offer you a range of stylish and affordable accessibility installations, at a competitive rate. But what option is right for you?
Choosing The Right Surface
As anyone who uses a mobility aid knows, gravel and wheels do not get on. While gravel and other aggregate paths may be stylish, they are incredibly difficult to access for anyone who uses wheelchairs or walking aids. Because of this, the disability access ramps we offer are built using either stone, brick, or concrete paving.
Not only are these materials incredibly durable, but they also provide suitable grip to wheels while not suffering from any major wear and tear over the years.
However, disabled ramps don’t have to be ugly slabs of concrete. During your initial consultation with our team, we can talk you through our range of stylish design options, including brick and slab work, so that your new access ramp perfectly suits your property without looking like an additional afterthought.
Gradients and Sloped Access Points
It isn’t just stairs that provide accessibility issues. Wheelchair and mobility aid users often struggle with steep inclines not only for hills and ramps, but for driveways too; which is why we ensure to keep the gradient of all of our ramps and driveways in mind during the design and installation phase, ensuring that they are not too steep to prevent any wheeled or walker access.
We here at Meadow Drives and Patios tailor all of our installations around your specific needs and requirements, so be sure to mention any accessibility issues to our team when discussing your project. Contact Meadow Drives and Patios to talk with a member of our team today.
