For me, it was common sense. The commercial access ramp doubled our business, made us ADA(Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant, and best of all it looks great!— Satisfied customer from Manchester, New Hampshire
Think vertically. Maximizing your business potential is as simple as installing a commercial access ramp, vertical platform lift, or stair lift. Accessibility will increase your customer base, prevent workplace accidents, and create a more comfortable atmosphere for everyone (including yourself).
Advent provides you with accessibility solutions without compromising your business’s style. Your commercial space should be welcoming, beautiful, and respectful – we make that happen.
What does the ADA require of my business?
For all new buildings the ADA requires that:
“At least one accessible route within the boundary of the site shall be provided from public transportation stops, accessible parking, and accessible passenger loading zones, and public streets or sidewalks to the accessible building entrance they serve. The accessible route shall, to the maximum extent feasible, coincide with the route for the general public.”
The access route must be 36 in. (915 mm) in width.
Revolving doors or turnstiles MUST have an access door positioned nearby.
All doors must be able to be opened with a minimum set forced listed by the ADA.
Stairs MUST have handrails on BOTH sides of the stairs.
There are hundreds more guidelines! Adhering to ADA compliance regulations is a daunting project. Fortunately, Advent’s excellent team simplifies the process. We can let you know the right actions to take in order to fulfill the ADA’s requirements.
Additional benefits of making your business accessible:
Increased accessibility improves comfort which improves customer relations which improves business.
A safer business is a business with fewer workplace injuries.
A workplace equipped with safety devices decreases your liability in the unfortunate instance of an injury on your property.
Who spends more time in your business than anyone else? You. So why not make your work space as comfortable as possible? Whether walking up the stairs is impossible or just a pain, you have the option to eliminate this inconvenience altogether.
Make the most of your livelihood. Advent’s commercial access solutions will keep your workplace safe, stylish, and accessible to everyone. It is the best way to ramp up your business.
