Enjoy Safe, ADA-Compliant Commercial Concrete Ramps
Business owners need to create safe access for individuals who require assistance. Ramps for your entrance aren’t the only feature your business needs to be ADA compliant, but it’s an essential feature that can affect your curb appeal, accessibility, and safety. Explore the benefits of an ADA-compliant concrete ramp by a local concrete professional.
Features of an ADA-Compliant Ramp
A ramp project may look relatively straightforward, but there are a number of features that must be included to be compliant and safe. Ramps need to have a specific slope and length to allow wheelchairs and electric scooters to safely navigate them. Ramps require signage, markings, and enough traction to create a safe option for gaining entrance to your building.
Improper installation, particularly of a more permanent material like concrete, can require expensive modifications in order to keep your property safe and compliant. Be sure you choose a quality ramp contractor who is knowledgeable and experienced with ADA compliance features.
Benefits of Choosing Concrete
There are many material options for your ADA ramp, including aluminum, fiberglass, wood, and concrete. Concrete is the most efficient and long-lasting option for your business. Other materials require continuous monitoring and maintenance to prevent hazardous conditions. Choose a material that’s designed to last longer and provide a firmer surface for daily traffic.
Concrete doesn’t have the same rust, rot, and water collection issues. Other materials may absorb water or become worn-out over time when installed outside your building. These factors can create a dangerous ramp if it isn’t maintained and inspected.
