Steps at the entry to commercial premises create access issues for individuals who use wheelchairs and for individuals with other disabilities, who have difficulties walking along their intended path of travel.
The requirements in the disabled access code AS1428 state that there are paths of travel suitable and accessible for disabled persons in building entries. Individuals in Wheelchairs or wheeled mobility equipment require a ramp when an edge becomes more than 3 mm high and in some cases 5mm high. (See applicable standards)
Our Nova Steel Coated Ramps are custom-made to suit the Australian standard for slip resistance, luminance contrast and correct angles.
We have repeat customers from Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Rottnest, Darwin, Brisbane, Cairns and Tasmania.
