Redefine Accessibility to Give All Students Equal Ground

The time a student spends in school is not just limited to mathematical equations and scientific theories. It is a vital building block in developing the person that they will eventually become. Lifelong friendships are formed, aspirations are born and dreams are created. For students with limited mobility, however, this crucial period of development can become marred by access restrictions. Not only does this hamper potential but it can signify possible isolation. That’s why EZ-ACCESS is committed to providing the tools to help schools create a welcoming and functional environment for all students. By incorporating our educational accessibility solutions, institutions can ensure that each child has the ability to conquer the world.

To take access to a new level, it is crucial to view mobility solutions as more than just a set of aluminum parts. At EZ-ACCESS, they are the gateway to providing inclusion so that every adult and child can be a star. As a family-owned company since 1984, our culture is unfaltering in its dedication to achieving this important goal.

Ramps and Lifts for Schools: Making Back-to-School Season Accessible for All

school ramps

As back-to-school season is in full swing, it’s time for schools to consider ramps and lifts for children in wheelchairs. EZ-ACCESS has a variety of accessibility ramps and lifts to choose from for your school buildings. Today’s blog will highlight these ramps and lifts and why it’s important to have portable ramps if there are children in your school with a wheelchair.

Because of ADA guidelines, schools are required to have accessibility for wheelchair users. Even if your school may have accessibility options for children, some areas still may not be accessible because of the building being older and unable to have permanent accessibility ramps. EZ-ACCESS has portable and temporary solutions for your school building.

Titan Code Compliant Modular Access System– This fully complaint ramp is perfect for the front entrance of the school building. Many schools have seen an influx in students, so temporary classrooms in trailers are on campuses across the USA. The Modular Access System is ideal for these portable classrooms. These ramps are easily installed and easily disassembled.

Traverse Walk Ramp– This ramp option offers a safe and reliable option for young children to walk on or wheelchair users to move in and out of different classrooms and small sets of stairs. This smaller sized ramp is ideal for tight spaces and smaller school systems looking for a simple walking ramp.

Passport Vertical Platform Lift– A lift is ideal for moving to different levels of a building if an elevator is not within reach. A vertical platform lift is durable and ease to use for those who assist wheelchair users. It is approved and safe for school use because of the extensive testing done on the lift.
