Being able to move freely in and around a building is not only essential for those with limited mobility, sight or hearing, it is also a statutory requirement for building owners under the Equality Act 2010. To satisfy these important requirements and to assist building owners and managers in fulfilling their duty, modernising existing lifts and escalators and installing new equipment where needed can achieve this.
When updating or modernising a lift to comply with the Equality Act 2010, the first place to start is the lift car and entrance, is it wide and large enough to accommodate a wheelchair?
