Our commitment to enhancing accessibility in commercial buildings across Australia is unwavering. This comprehensive guide, infused with our expertise, outlines ten pivotal steps to transform your building into a welcoming space for everyone, regardless of their physical abilities.
Easy Accessibility Upgrades
Install Grab Bars and ADA-Compliant Door Hardware
- Grab Bars: A simple yet crucial addition, grab bars provide essential support in restrooms and other areas. Commercial Building Repairs offers a variety of styles and materials, ensuring these installations are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
- Door Hardware: Replacing traditional knobs with lever handles and ensuring door pressures are set appropriately can make a world of difference. Our team specialises in fitting lever handles and other accessible hardware, making doorways effortless to navigate for everyone.
Advanced Accessibility Features
Incorporate Assistive Technology and Ramps
- Assistive Technology: From automatic door openers to audio and tactile cues, these technologies play a vital role in aiding those with disabilities. Our experts at Commercial Building Repairs can seamlessly integrate these technologies into your building’s design.
- Ramps: A fundamental feature for wheelchair access, ramps must be carefully designed to meet specific standards. Our construction team excels in creating ramps that are not only compliant but also blend seamlessly with your building’s architecture.
Ensuring Accessible Pathways
Clear, Well-Lit Paths and Accessible Parking
- Pathways: Ensuring paths are wide, obstacle-free, and well-lit is crucial. We specialise in redesigning pathways to enhance safety and accessibility.
- Accessible Parking: Designated parking spaces, properly marked and located near entrances, are essential. Our team can reconfigure your parking layout to meet these needs effectively.
Creating Accessible Restrooms and Elevators
