Our Folding Suitcase Ramps And Evacuation Chairs Are Now Shipped Worldwide!
As mobility and access ramp manufacturers in the UK, we are represented globally by an ever-increasing number of importers and resellers. Our range of Made-in-Britain folding ramps and evacuation chairs are ideal for the international market with strong demand from mobility specialist retailers, disability product importers/wholesalers and fire safety companies.
In this article, we explain why our products have created such universal appeal, from the northern heights of Oslo, Norway to the hot climate of Dubai in the Middle East, and beyond to Australia and New Zealand.
One of the key benefits for importers of disabled access equipment and fire safety supplies is that we have excelled at innovation in lightweight, compact folding mobility equipment.
“Whilst the compact and portable features of our mobility equipment came out of the study of our user’s needs, the ease of storing and transporting our products equates to efficient and cost-saving import freight costs,” says Garth Ker, the International Sales Manager here at Enable Access. “This equates to our innovative mobility ramps and stair evacuation chairs being an attractive offering for resellers across the globe” he goes on to explain.
Take an example of a full-width, 0.9m (3’) length ramp from our highly popular Aerolight-Xtra folding ramp range; its stored dimensions are very compact at just 90x39x8cm (only 0.0281 cbm) or 36″x15″x3″ (only 0.94 ft³), making it ideal for sea/airfreight as it is for putting in the boot of your car. Known as the Folding Suitcase Ramp, from its quick-to-deploy hinged opening and suitcase-like handle, this ramp is great for wheelchairs, rollators and scooter access in addition to pedestrians who find steps a bane.
So, with shipping freight being a significant factor for import/export companies and the GBP being at a historically low cost it’s no surprise that our international dealerships and resellers are doing so well.
Our ExitMaster Range For Stairway Evacuation
Another critical consideration is the urgent focus on fire safety and emergency evacuation/in-building relocation needs for those with infirmity or disability issues, especially in high-rise apartments and multi-floor public buildings. The ExitMaster Versa is one of the tools designed for Fire and Life Safety staff, to enable them to fulfil their duties of assisting those with mobility needs. Tragically, there have been a number of fatal fires in high-rise buildings worldwide over recent years and Enable Access are committed to playing its part in the answer to the challenge of safe emergency evacuation down steps and stairwells.
