“With the deadline for ADA pool entry and exit accessibility compliance right around the corner, there is no better time for pool and spa owners to get their facilities up to speed with these new laws."
Elberton, GA (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has recently joined into a distribution alliance with Spectrum Aquatics to offer their ADA compliant Summit Therapy Spa and Pool Lift to a larger professional consumer arena. Headquartered in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Spectrum Aquatics develops, designs and manufactures a broad array of superior quality and state-of-the-art commercial swimming pool and spa deck equipment and accessories. Their products are used around the world for the construction, operation and maintenance of institutional and commercial spas and pools and include starting platforms, stanchion posts and anchors, grab rails and handrails, ladders, water slides, and ADA compliant pool lifts and assisted access equipment.
The battery powered Summit Therapy Spa and Pool Lift from Spectrum affords facilities a great opportunity to comply with the new ADA Standards for Accessible Design. These new 'Americans with Disabilities Act' (ADA) laws relate to the provisions of accessible entry and exit to existing swimming pools, wading pools and spas, and must be complied with by January 31, 2013. Fully compliant with ADA guidelines, ABA (Architectural Barriers Act) guidelines and Title 24: California Code of Regulation, the Summit Therapy Lift offers a patented and secure transfer system for therapy, above-ground spas, and above-ground pools. Capable of traveling over a wall height of 64 inches and a maximum wall width of 24 inches, the Summit boasts a 500 pound lifting capacity and a 360-degree continuously powered rotation for a wide variety of user applications.
A large and spacious seat provides excellent lumbar support, while an adjustable and padded headrest, a large, heavy duty, swing-out and non-slip footrest, and a pinchless flip-up outer arm with a non-slip grip all provide further comfort, safety and security for every user transfer. “We are thrilled to introduce more professional consumers to the fantastic benefits of the Summit Therapy Spa and Pool Lift from Spectrum Aquatics,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “With the deadline for ADA pool entry and exit accessibility compliance right around the corner, there is no better time for pool and spa owners to get their facilities up to speed with these new laws. And the Summit makes a great choice for enhancing both spa and pool accessibility with its ability to be built specifically to each facility's unique schematics and requirements. We are very proud to offer this, and all of the exceptional quality pool and spa lifts and equipment from Spectrum Aquatics to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
