Installing ramps for temporary use is quite challenging and has to be done with great care, taking into consideration the exact requirements of the client. Dedicated to fulfilling specific accessibility requirements in commercial as well as residential settings, Living Free Home is an experienced dealer in the industry. Our recent project involved improving wheelchair accessibility to our client’s beach house in Stone Harbor, New Jersey.
When it comes to ramps or any other mobility assistive devices, the requirements for each customer are specific. Our NJ client wanted us to install a ramp for her beach house, which is usually rented out in summer. She uses a power chair and has not been able to visit her house. She wanted us to install a wheelchair ramp for her that could be easily built and just as easily removed and stored for the busy summer rental season. She also wanted to preserve the parking spot.
Our licensed and accredited technicians performed a Free Home Evaluation Visit and came up with an individualized accessibility solution. We installed an open mesh steel ramp with powder coated black finish. Manufactured by National Ramp, this steel ramp comes with an array of features such as – black handrails, textured finish for slip resistance, unique welded cone-mounted hand rail design and ADA-compliant 36″ width. This ramp’s code-compliant mesh design allows natural drainage, yet is small enough to prevent small objects from passing through. Its Tuxedo Black color complements any exterior finish. Our team decided on this product because National Ramp Systems are a great option for permanent, semi-permanent or temporary situations and can be designed to fit almost any application. They are ideal when a quick, temporary ramp access solution is required.
We preserved the parking spot by shifting the ramp back in toward the front of the home so that the car could still park in the driveway. Our skilled technicians also went through the final quality checklist prior to completion. The client is happy with the product and professional installation support we offered.
