Providing Covered Disability Access to your building

Providing Covered Disability Access to your building

Disability Access Canopy Installed at Alexandra Community Primary School in Wrexham, ClwydIf your organisation is open to the public it is important that provision is made to enable anyone who has a disability to enter the building. This is also the case if you have a private building yet have members of staff who have disabilities which prevent them entering the building easily.

Adapting your building to provide means of entry for all levels of mobility often involves installing a ramp – particularly if you are modifying existing buildings. As using ramps often makes the journey into the building longer, a canopy over this area can be a welcomed addition for anyone using the ramp, as it will provide a dry entry to the building and slip-free surface to help ensure anyone can enter the building as easily as possible.

A wall mounted canopy is the best option for disability access shelter as it provides uninterrupted protection from rain from the ramp to the door. Here at Able Canopies we recommend our Coniston Wall Mounted canopy for providing cover to access areas as it is so versatile and can be installed to any length and project to 6 metres- allowing you to provide cover for large ramps – or to incorporate a covered seating or waiting area next to the ramp to give the area dual purpose.
