ANTISKID AT WORK
Wellington Street Office Block – New Wheelchair Access Ramp
> Safe and attractive shared pathway for wheelchair and pedestrian traffic
> Natural Stone surfacing system
As part of the renovation of this older office block in Perth there was a requirement to provide wheelchair access to the main entrance. The option was there to provide a graded concrete ramp but this just didn't achieve the levels of aesthetic appeal nor the appropriate levels of safety that the client required. It required a safer surface which would contribute to the visual appeal of the build and offer a safe entrance area for users in all weather conditions.
Antiskid Industries recommended the installation of OMNIGRIP Deco Surfacing System to the ramp. This provided an extremely pleasing visual appeal combined with enhanced safety and long design life. The ramp is external and subject to potential rain conditions so Omnigrip Deco was one of the few products able to achieve the required safety rating in all conditions. It is quick to install and very economical as well. A win all round.
Works were completed by Omnicrete accredited contractor Antiskid Industries.
