Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators, LLC has published a comprehensive infographic entitled “How-to Make Your House Handicap Accessible” to provide information on how-to make a house handicap accessible.
With this infographic, Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators, LLC informs people on many different ways to make a house handicap accessible. To accurately educate consumers on handicap accessibility, the infographic covers how-to make different areas of a house handicap accessible including hallways, doorways, closets, bathrooms, the kitchen, an elevator, stairways, flooring, electrical features, and the yard.
For handicap accessibility, hallways and doorways should be clear of furniture and bulky décor items, and hallways should be 36 inches wide with doorways 32 inches wide. Bathrooms should have an ample amount of clear floor space so mobility devices can easily maneuver, and a taller toilet seat or toilet riser should be installed.
In the kitchen, multi-level countertops should be utilized with everyday items stored in lower cabinets that can easily be accessed. The space in front of elevators should be clear so mobility devices can easily maneuver around, and elevator buttons should be at an appropriate level. From a flooring aspect, hardwood, vinyl, or tile flooring are ideal choices, and throw rugs should be avoided because they are fall risks.
“Making a house handicap accessible could ultimately change the life of someone who has limited mobility,” said Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators, LLC President Patrick De Ledebur. “By having hallways wide enough and installing an elevator so everyone can easily reach multiple stories are two of the many ways to ensure handicap accessibility for a home.”
