Making even the simplest of adaptations to your home can make a difference about whether a person is able to continue to live safely at home. We hear time and time again that people want to live independently in their own home for as long as possible. To increase independence, improve quality of life and make a significant difference to your day-to-day experiences, Able Access can help in a number of ways. By raising your floors for wheelchairs or installing wheelchair accessible flooring, you can make all the difference to your health, wellbeing and contact with the outside world.
You can raise floor heights in a number of different ways, the most significant being through the installation of a ramp. Wheelchair and scooter ramps enable those with mobility issues to enjoy complete freedom of their home without the need of another person to help them get out of their chair. As a practical solution to enhance mobility, installing floors for wheelchair access will allow you access to your entire property, regardless of floor height.
Alongside ramps, you may also choose to lower surfaces within your home. Often, it is easy to forget that work surfaces are often built for those who can stand, which makes simple tasks such as preparing meals difficult. We can reduce your stress by lowering work surfaces around the home as well as raising your floor heights to that you are supported in all of your day-to-day tasks.
When raising floor heights, you may also want to widen doorframes within your property. For a wheelchair user to comfortably navigate through the home, it’s essential that doorways are at least 32 inches wide. Installing a wheelchair accessible door and widening a doorframe can help maintain your independence and provide you with access to different rooms within your home easily.
We will provide unique and versatile designs that are suitable for both temporary and permanent use. Our ramps, for example, are perfectly designed to fit the appropriate space and can be adjusted for slope, length and shape.
We have a range of solutions available and can support you with finding an accessibility strategy to fit your budget and preferences. We understand that every customer has a unique situation and managing complex mobility restrictions can be a difficult process.
When installing our floors for wheelchair access, we think considerably about your safety, accessibility and compliance. After many years of experience designing and installing wheelchair accessible flooring and through developing our knowledge of the industry, we have developed a build and installation process with minimum disruption.
We support you by improving your quality of life and independence. We are always on hand to answer any questions you have, so call us on 0121 382 1814 to find out more about our raised floors for wheelchairs.
