In many homes and public spaces, accessibility ramps play an important role as they help people with mobility issues get to where they’re going. Although the design and structure of ramps may seem simple, they actually go through a complex process to ensure that they are safe to use and comply with current laws and regulations.
This is one of the main reasons why you should get in touch with a trusted and professional builder if you’re looking to install a wheelchair ramp in your home or commercial establishment.
In Australia, one particular company you can rely on for your modular ramp needs is Adapta Ramps. Based in New South Wales, we specialise in designing and building modular ramps for homes, shops, offices, and other public spaces. We make sure that these ramps last a long time and satisfy our clients’ needs and preferences.
About The Company
Adapta Ramps has been providing ramps, handrails, steps, and other mobility and accessibility solutions in Australia for over 20 years now. Through our extensive experience in this field, we have perfected our design, engineering, and construction approaches for our various projects.
For more than two decades, we have dedicated ourselves to improving our craft by deepening our knowledge about the nature and purpose of access ramps and related structures. This involves gaining a deeper understanding of building ramps, handrails, and steps that address the needs of the users, which in this case are people with mobility issues.
By utilising new and innovative architectural and engineering techniques, we are able to supply customisable solutions that appeal to the accessibility needs of our customers.
Ramp Design Solutions
Adapta Ramps offers its customers a way to design their ramps based on their needs, preferences, and the available space on their property. They can then select their preferred materials for their ramps. To ensure our ramp’s durability, we offer frames made from timber or welded steel, which are designed to withstand Australia’s harsh weather conditions.
When it comes to the flooring or surface of the ramps, customers have the option to choose from various materials such as modwood, Merbau hardwood, perforated aluminium, and CFC sheets. Through these various options, customers can select a style that goes well with the overall appearance of their property.
To comply with current laws and regulations, our access ramps are equipped with handrails. These features are designed to provide an additional layer of safety for the ramp’s users.
Through proper building techniques, we are able to supply modular kits that are easy to assemble and install.
DDA And AS Compliance
As mentioned earlier, our ramp building process involves taking into consideration the guidelines and parameters set by current laws and building regulations, such as the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) and the Australian Standards (AS).
With Adapta Ramps, you can be sure that the accessibility ramp you’ll receive comply with these regulations. This means that it will have the correct gradient according to its length, and the ramp will be equipped with handrails that have the proper specifications and dimensions.
Aside from saving you from potential legal troubles by complying with the law and building regulations, our DDA and AS-compliant ramps will provide you with peace of mind knowing that they can be easily and safely used by people with disabilities and mobility problems.
