The management of buildings is a very serious consideration. It means, looking after the fabric of the building and having responsibility over the service and facilities that you offer inside the building. This could be down to the business owner or a Facilities Management Company.
To make things easier, we offer a large range of Stair Climbers and Evacuation Chairs that will enable you to offer a safe solution to access and evacuation for Persons of Reduced Mobility (PRM). We have options that allow people in manual and powered wheelchairs to remain in their wheelchairs, some individuals cannot be transferred without a significant additional risk to their health. For those who can transfer, the whole range is potentially suitable, it can give more adequate solutions to likely issues such as, independent onward travel. For tackling spiral, flared, or narrow stairs we have different models available.
Do not forget, access is often going upstairs, and therefore powered models are frequently required. Most of our range is powered making it extremely versatile. It can be used for a variety of applications. Restriction on applications is in people’s minds, not in the mind of the machine.
There is often a need to move goods around buildings, and up and down stairs. We also offer Stair Climbers to prevent any damage to the fabric of your building, as they are powered. They minimalize any lifting or weight bearing, reducing the likelihood of injury to people using the equipment to move heavy loads or individuals. They each take very substantial weights, but some models can take more than others.
The cost of the appropriate powered unit is far less than injury claims, time off work, etc.
People who are responsible in the building need to ensure that there are sufficient people trained and competent in the use of the Evacuation Chairs and Stair Climbers. Also, that the units are serviced on an annual basis by Evaccess engineers. We can service all makes and models.
A Site Assessment will confirm what units are suitable for the people using your building.
