Planning for the New Year – Why Making Your Business More Handicap Accessible Should Be Top of the List!

The New Year is almost here and what an exciting time to make some changes for the betterment of yourself and/or your business! If you’re looking to make your business more accessibility-friendly, we have a few products and tips that can help you out with this New Year’s Resolution!

Resolution No. 1

Evaluate Your Entrances:

Taking a look at your entrances is a great starting point to determine what kind of accessibility solutions will be required. Are there stairs that can prevent someone from getting to your door? Is there enough space for a wheelchair to maneuver its way to the door and through the doorway? Is there a slope that’s too steep for someone to get up? These are all great questions to ask yourself.

Achieving Resolution No. 1:

With a few simple products like the TITAN™ Code Compliant Modular Access System, you can provide a seamless entry point for your customers. This system is low maintenance so it doesn’t have to be another worry while you run your business or welcome customers.

Resolution No. 2

Take a look at your door:

While opening a door may be a simple task for many, it’s important to consider the weight of the door and how easy it would be to open for someone using a wheelchair. One more thing to look at is the doorway threshold. Is it a significant height? Would it be a struggle for a wheelchair, scooter, or walker to navigate the threshold?

Achieving Resolution No. 2:

Adding one of our TRANSITIONS® entry mats can eliminate those tricky thresholds and help prevent the potential trip hazard they may pose. Designed to be slip resistant and easy to match up to your threshold, installing these mats should be no hassle at all. They blend so well, you’ll barely notice they’re there!

We understand that making your business completely accessible can seem like an overwhelming task while running your business, but with these few improvements, you’ll be marking resolutions off your list left and right. Cheers to a New Year and let us help you create a plan for improved accessibility here!

Start Making the Grade When it comes to School Building Accessibility

Is it time for an educational assessment when it comes to your school’s accessibility? Don’t wait until summer break to start the lesson plans, now is the perfect time to make improvements around your campus.  Whether you’re looking for a ramp for wheelchair users or one to help with a set of stairs for younger students, we’re an A student when it comes to accessibility solutions and we have the perfect lesson for you.

Our TITAN™ Code Compliant Modular Access System is the correct answer and through its modular design, one of the most adaptable and durable systems on the market. Take a look at a few key features this system has:

  • Most Adaptable: While the TITAN System can change to meet your needs, you won’t find any fad trends here. Depending on the building, this system can be customized to the site. The components of this ramp are easy as ABC to install and configure. The ramps, platforms, and stairs can all be combined and configured to fit a variety of buildings, spaces, and access needs.

 

  • Most Likely to Be on Safety Patrol: This ramp system is all about safety and isn’t afraid to let others know about it either. We offer two or four inch high curbs, safety railings, and an optional lower handrail for younger students. No slipping and sliding here, the slip-resistant surface is designed to help provide increased traction during rainy or winter weather.

 

  • Biggest Rule Follower: The biggest rule follower, if there ever was one! The TITAN Code Compliant Modular Access System is in compliance with ADA, IBC, OSHA and most local code regulations. You won’t find this ramp in detention.

 

  • Most Likely To Succeed: Not to brag, but this ramp system knows it’s good. Like many of our other EZ-ACCESS products, the TITAN is built with the highest quality aluminum, which is corrosion-resistant, making it maintenance-free for many years of high traffic use. You won’t have to worry about rust, rot, deterioration, splinters, or having to replace it.

Out of the Box Ways to Use Your EZ-ACCESS Accessibility Solutions

Our access solutions may seem like their use is pretty straightforward, however, with a little creativity our products can be used for many things you may have never thought about! Here are some “out of the box access ideas” to consider with EZ-ACCESS products:

  • Raised Floor – If you’re in an industry with data centers or manufacturing plants, where you’d need a raised surface to protect cords and pipes or prevent tripping hazards, our TITAN™ platforms and steps are the solutions you’ve been looking for. This product can be configured to meet to site-specific criteria, has been reinforced for added strength, and features an extruded slip-resistant surface to ensure safety.
  • Access to Activities – The FORTRESS® OSHA Stair System makes for the perfect elevated solution to access activities that require some added height, like mounting a horse, accessing carnival rides, or even getting up on stage. With height options ranging from 23” to 42.5”, this stair system can easily be configured to meet your needs.
  • Create a Deck – Use the TITAN™ system to create the perfect temporary deck or porch for your RV or travel trailer. Add some patio furniture and your grill – and maybe even a few plants – to create a charming and peaceful setting at your home away from home.
  • Platform to Your Work – The TITAN could probably be called the jack of all trades. In addition to the examples mentioned above, this system can also be configured to create a work platform to machinery. Never worry about finding a ladder or accessing machinery in an unsafe manner; the TITAN can be your safe solution.
  • Access to Your Show Floor – While our TRANSITIONS® entry ramps are usually thought of as a way to overcome doorway thresholds, we’ve seen them used creatively to provide access to an indoor/outdoor display that has a slightly raised floor.

If you’ve used your EZ-ACCESS products in a unique way, let us know. We love seeing what our products can do for you.

Much like the TRAVERSE Singlefold Ramp it has raised sides to prevent equipment from slipping off the edges and also features two stops that prevent it from sliding or moving during use.

TITAN™ Code Compliant Modular Access System – Raised access points to warehouses, loading docks, dumpsters, or other difficult to reach areas are exactly what our TITAN System was created for. The system can be configured to best fit your area, meeting all of your site-specific needs. Another great thing about the TITAN is that it’s easy to install and is ADA, IBC, and OSHA complaint.

FORTRESS® OSHA Stair System – If you’re in need of access to dumpsters, recycling containers, or large machinery, you’ll want to employ the use of our FORTRESS OSHA Stair System.

Your Business and Snow Removal with the Titan Modular Access System

Titan Modular Ramp System
At EZ-ACCESS®, we care about moving you forward without having any obstacles ahead of you, especially while using a Passport™ Vertical Platform Lift, Pathway® Modular Ramp System or a Titan Modular Access System for your business.
Continuing with how to properly maintain and clean your EZ-ACCESS® aluminum ramp during the winter months, we’d like to help our local businesses understand how they can provide “EZ” access for customers to get into their businesses safely.
Some great tips to use from our first blog that you could also use for your business would be to use cat litter instead of ice melt to reduce the amount of extra ice melt that gets into your store and reduce the amount of residue left on the Titan Modular Access System.  Also, invest in a hard bristled broom to push the snow off of your Titan Modular Access System instead of scratching or damaging it with a metal or metal-tipped plastic shovel.
Other things to consider that are easy fixes to fighting the winter storms and ice build up around your business would be:

  • Post temporary signs where it may be slippery to alert incoming customers to your business.
  • Post if your business will be open or open late due to weather conditions so you can clear the snow to get into your business.
  • Place cat litter or ice melt bins directly outside your business to use for the parking lot or for the Titan Modular Access System.
  • Provide additional mats for your customers to remove any snow or ice melt crystals before entering your business as well as making sure your floor inside is dry to reduce chances of a fall or injury.
  • Most importantly, for your own safety, wear slip resistant footwear, like cleats, to reduce personal injury, and your business being closed.

Hopefully these tips will help in the coming winter and snow months.  Please let EZ-ACCESS® know how we can help with all your questions regarding the Titan Modular Access System today!

Make your Business more Accessible with a Modular Access System

At E-Z ACCESS®, we care about people getting where they need to go by using a portable ramp, Pathway® Modular System or Passport™ Vertical Platform Lift.  We also care about you, a business owner, having mobility options for your business.  Today, E-Z ACCESS® will go over some elements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and a commercial Titan Modular Access System that may make all the difference with your storefront.
business-accessible-graphic
 
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits the exclusion of people with disabilities from everyday activities.  Businesses now have requirements they have to meet with the ADA and compliance for new businesses isn’t difficult.  The ADA understands that many small businesses cannot afford to make major changes to their businesses. The ADA has come up with requirements for existing facilities and new buildings.
Having multiple accessible entrances to your storefront is very important to invite people with or without disabilities to your store.  Having only one option to get to your business can limit people
who use wheelchairs, walkers or canes.
Your business can achieve multiple entrances by using a Titan Modular Access System. Our Titan Modular Access System is an all-aluminum, universal product that is easy to install, reconfigure and relocate to accommodate virtually any layout or lot configuration.  Handrails are integrated with every ramp and non-skid surfaces are also included. Titan Modular Access Systems can be very simple to very detailed and you can keep adding to them as needed with a custom design.  No two storefronts are the same and that’s where E-Z ACCESS® comes in to help.
Titan Modular Access Systems meet all requirements with the ADA, IBC, OSHA and local build code guidelines. The Titan Modular Access System has little maintenance for upkeep, individual serial numbers for easy tracking and inventory and an industry leading three year warranty for wear and durability.
EZ-ACCESS® would love to hear from you to get your business mobility ready. Learn about our other products like EZ-ACCESS® Portable Ramps or Passport™ Vertical Platform Lifts to make your business more accessible.
