With commercial spaces, you – as a property owner or manager – have the responsibility to ensure that those using your facilities can easily access them without worry for their safety because they are wheelchair bound. Using custom-built wheelchair ramps that are installed to a professional standard, you can be sure that your wheelchair ramps meet ADA guidelines and ensure the safety of everyone who comes to and enters your property.
Commercial Wheelchair Ramps
Commercial wheelchair ramps are built for your commercial spaces that host numerous employees, guests, and visitors. Since you can’t always anticipate who will be coming to your building, it’s best to accommodate everyone and build methods of entrance and exiting that are durable for foot traffic and those who are wheelchair bound.
When you have a commercial space, you also likely have more frequent visitors than a residential space. To accommodate the foot traffic that comes in and out of your building, you’ll want wheelchair ramps that are dependable and can hold the weight of all of the foot traffic you’ll like receive. You’ll also want wheelchair ramps that allow wheelchair-bound guests easy access to your facilities, without having to redirect them elsewhere or making them use another, less convenient entrance. We help build and integrate large-scale ramps into staircases and entryways where you openly welcome guests – en masse – so that there’s no issue when entering the building by foot or by wheelchair.
Multiple entrances around the property mean that you’ll have to think about building a wheelchair ramp into all of them that meets ADA standards and is safe to use, regardless of its location. All of the ramps around your commercial space need to be coherent and safe regarding their size, location to the entrance, and its relation to other public spaces. For example, you wouldn’t want the widest wheelchair ramp to be located at the back of the building, nor would you want one entrance for stair-users and another for wheelchair users. Making all of the entrances safe and accessible is the ultimate key to visitor safety.
Indoor and Outdoor Wheelchair Ramps
We help build both indoor and outdoor wheelchair ramps for multiple uses and surfaces. If your existing outdoor entrance into your commercial space is made up of concrete stairs, you’ll want an efficiently-marked, outdoor ramp that connects to the side of the stairs for alternative use. The ramp can be built with connected handrails that link the whole structure of stairs and ramps together, to make them appear more secure and cohesive. Having a ramp that isn’t connected to the same entrance or door as the stairs can be challenging to navigate and can make those bound to a wheelchair feel less important. To avoid this, we find all kinds of solutions to integrate indoor and outdoor wheelchair ramps on existing builds that need to be customized for ramps, and new builds that require them as stated by the ADA guidelines.
