Wheelchair Accessibility Standards Canada

We can help your business meet the wheelchair accessibility standards in Canada with custom handicap handrails and ramp rails.

At Stainless Outfitters Inc., we get called to fabricate and mill custom stainless-steel products for a wide variety of needs. While some projects focus on aesthetics and standard-grade functionality, others need to be extremely precise and in accordance with certain regulations. For example, the wheelchair accessibility standards in Canada dictate that handrails be present for the accessibility of those with disabilities.

It is important to note that if you are undertaking certain renovations at your business, you could trigger the new requirements and have to meet the wheelchair accessibility standards in Canada as they are defined in the most recent building code. While the requirements do not have a retroactive effect for existing buildings, they are intended for new construction and when a building more than five years old is being extensively renovated.

It is important to note that even if you are not required to meet the wheelchair accessibility standards in Canada, you might want to do so to accommodate persons with disabilities. To do so as an employer and as a service or product supplier is in your best interests. If you would like to discuss how we can help you with custom-designed handicap handrails and ramp rails that will meet the wheelchair accessibility standards in Canada and be aesthetically pleasing, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
