All businesses can benefit from an accessible pathway or ramp, it’s a way to make your business more accessible to a variety of customers and clients, and it allows people to feel more welcomed at your establishment too.
Not only does this – quite rightly – open an area up to everyone, it addresses everyday practical issues, from pushchairs and prams, children’s garden toys and moving garden furniture around to the job we all hate…putting the wheelie bin out! Accessible ramps ensure everything is available to everyone – and can make a variety of tasks easier and better for everyone involved.
There are many businesses and companies we’ve helped become more accessible, and we’ve done so with the use of resin bound paving – which create smooth, easily maintained ramps. Some of the businesses that have benefited from ramps include:
- Shopping malls
- Town centres
- Parks and walkways
- Garden Centres
- Swimming pools
We’ve also noticed that the inclusion of ramps and accessible pathways, into landscape/garden designs, is becoming increasingly popular – which we believe can only be a good thing! This allows everyone to enjoy landscaping and garden design, and means the beauty can be shared with everyone, no matter what their mobility.
What are the benefits to resin bound ramps?
A resin bound ramp delivers a variety of benefits of traditionally paved ramps. We’ve listed some of these below::
- There’s no loose stone
- It’s not slippery when wet
- There is no rutting or cracking
- It’s beautifully smooth
- Easy to maintain – no weeding
- It’s easy for ice to disperse
- There are no puddles
- It is a firm, stable, durable, surface
All of these things together, make the resin bound ramp a perfect choice if you’re looking to make your property more accessible and easier to get to for people in wheelchairs, people with prams, people who struggle with mobility and stairs.
The paving is easy to maintain too – which means you can rest assured knowing the ramp will be in great condition for many years to come.
Another fantastic thing about resin bound ramps, is the ability to customise them to your brand or business / space. Because resin bound paving is made up of aggregates, you can select the colour of said aggregate, to ensure the overall look and feel of your ramp fits in with your aesthetic.
We have many examples of resin bound ramps to look at for inspiration, so we recommend you take a look through these to see what styles you like, and what would be best suited to your business / space.
We strongly recommend checking current Building Regulations for the most up to date legal requirements.
