Mr X asked us to consider the options available to allow his wife to get in and out of their home. Mrs X’s mobility had become increasingly limited and she now relied on a manual wheelchair to move around both within their home and outside. However trips out were increasingly a challenge and not without risk when negotiating the 5 steep steps from their front door. The total height difference from drive level to door threshold being around 750mm.
We visited and carried out a survey of the front access, having already established that access from the rear of the property was not an option without either a ramp or a vertical platform lift.
Mr & Mrs x had the advantage of a generous front garden. We carried out a detailed survey and within 24 hours provide Mr & Mrs X with a proposal for a modular ramp proposal including a site sketch and a detailed quote.
Having been restricted to their home for some time Mrs X was keen to proceed as quickly as possible.
7 days later we completed the installation of a modular ramp system within 1 day making access from their front door to driveway possible, easy and risk free. There were no permanent changes to their property, no concreting, the ramp meets building regulations, it is non slip, exceptionally robust and blends well. Under the ramp is a low maintenance surface finished in bark chips and the maintenance requirements of the ramp almost nil – perhaps the occasional wipe down if required, so no ongoing costs.
