Historic properties are not exempt from ADA requirements – they must take steps to become accessible to the greatest extent possible.
Direct Access has secured a five-year contract to supply, install and service its evacuation chair range to public sector and not-for-profit organizations in Utah.
In a year that has presented so many challenges, one of the highlights of 2020 for us was a presentation we took part in called “Accessibility in a post-COVID word?”.
When there is an emergency within a school, teachers and fire marshals work to get children out as fast as possible. Yet a child or young person in a wheelchair could be left at the stairwell while their friends have left the building. Therefore, emergency evacuation for schools must consider procedures for children of all physical capabilities.
Direct Access has recently launched our brand new Evacuation Chair range. Developed by disabled people, it is the first time that Chairs has been developed with a disabled evacuee in mind.
