Protecting You & Your EZ-ACCESS® Ramp Against the Snow

Protecting-Against-Snow
At EZ-ACCESS®, we understand that all of our clients that use our great line on aluminum mobility ramps deal with different climates and weather conditions.  Most of America has cooled down and are prepping for the holiday season.  Every winter, a majority of states deal with snow removal and walking, or rolling on sidewalks and mobility ramps. Today, EZ-ACCESS® would like to provide you with easy steps to keep your EZ-ACCESS® aluminum ramp system clear of snow and ice, so you can carefully enter and exit your home with no problems.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one-third of older adults who suffer a fall will suffer severe injuries, including fracture and head injuries, which can limit their independence and increase the risk of death. At EZ-ACCESS®, we hope you can use our great line of aluminum ramps with no hassle or injuries at all. See how you can best use your EZ-ACCESS® ramp during the colder, winter months:

  • Ice melt can be used to break up thick chunks of ice that may have melted from other areas around your home. The downside is that it can leave a white, chalky residue behind that is hard to wash away and it damages your lawn.  Purchase extra-coarse, non-clumping cat litter at your local hardware store. Cat litter acts as additional traction on slippery surfaces and doesn’t leave the chalky residue behind. When the snow melts in the spring, the pet litter can be swept or washed away. 
  • Using a broom on your EZ-ACCESS® ramp would help reduce scratching or damaging it with a metal or plastic shovel.  A hard bristle broom and a sunny winter day can help the snow on your EZ-ACCESS® ramp slide right off without damaging the floor of your ramp. 

Please let us at EZ-ACCESS® know how we can better serve you during the winter season with any of your questions or concerns. Happy Holidays!

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.

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.
