Built-Up Curb-Cut Ramps Provide Accessibility and Solution to ADA LawsuitsBy AT Journal, Vol. 120, No. 1
Publication Date: April 2006
Paper discusses the Curb Ramp from Handi-Ramp, which was created so that cities could provide an immediate, affordable solution that conforms to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility Guidelines Section 4.7. Cities and private businesses alike face increasing legal pressure from individuals and disability advocacy groups to make their curbs and sidewalks accessible and in compliance with ADA guidelines. The Curb Ramp is made of reinforced steel with hinged side wings, which allow traffic from all sides. The ramp can be adjusted to fit any curb, while its yellow safety surface is powder-coated and dimpled to provide high traction in any weather. The ramp is heavy enough to withstand the weight of traffic, yet light enough to be moved by city crews. Interested parties are encouraged to visit Handi-Ramp online (http://www.handiramp.com) for further information.
