ADA Compliance Simple, Fast, Affordable with Portable Wheelchair Ramps
Since 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has been instrumental in guaranteeing that wheelchair-bound and other mobile assistance device users can enjoy the same freedom of movement and ease of access as those who are able to walk on their own. Buildings, schools, businesses, parks and other areas are now required to ensure that anyone who wants to use the facilities may do so without requiring any outside assistance of any kind.
Furthermore, the ADA demands that all employers with 15 or more employees must make reasonable accommodations for these otherwise-qualified individuals with disabilities. It also “restricts questions that can be asked about an applicant's disability before a job offer is made, and it requires that employers make reasonable accommodation to the known physical or mental limitations of otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities, unless it results in undue hardship.”
There’s no doubt that the ADA has changed lives, but for the average business person, the requirements may be a little intimidating. We, at Ramp Solutions, find that many business owners overestimate the cost of adding the proper ramp accoutrements to their offices. But in all actuality, portable ramps offer an easy, fast, affordable way to achieve ADA compliance.
If your needs are simple, a lightweight rollup ramp is the way to go. Designed to bridge the gap over steps, curbs, and raised landings, these ramps are easy to install, offering a safe, effective way for mobile-assisted individuals to come and go.
Two-to-six-feet single fold ramps and five-to-twelve feet multifold ramps are perfect to accommodate larger wheelchairs and motorized vehicles over larger spans. They can also be taken up and put down on a daily basis, and easily moved to a different location if need be.
Portable wheelchair ramps can be useful resources; the key is choosing the right model with the right specifications for you and your needs. Ramp Solutions prides itself on working with you to make these all-important decisions and pinpoint the perfect solution for you. We want to make sure you find the best ramp at an affordable price.
