According to Statistics Canada, almost 2.7 million people or 1 in 10 Canadians aged 15 and older had a mobility disability in 2017, making it one of the most common disability types. With the help of modified vehicle providers, many people with disabilities are able to access a vehicle suited to their needs.
These needs often mean special access for wheelchairs and other mobility aids is required, with the most effective, and safest method being automotive access ramps.
However, some adapted vehicles may not have been supplied with an integrated ramp, or you might prefer a non-integrated ramp solution, allowing you to continue accessing your own vehicle.
At Portaramp, we have years of expertise in designing and supplying a range of bespoke vehicle access ramp solutions. We strive to work closely with all our customers to provide the safest, most effective solutions for their needs.
What’s more, we can work directly with local authority and community vehicle manufacturers to provide a fitted, bespoke solution.
To ensure equal access for all, those with a responsibility to provide access to these educational establishments should review current access, and look to install solutions where needed.
Building access ramps are a simple, effective way of providing safe access to buildings for people with reduced mobility. At Portaramp, we have been working with the education sector and others for many years to provide the best building access solutions for disabled people across the globe. Our bespoke, portable ramps offer an alternative to costly fixed ramps, without drawbacks.
