While the Kids Are Gone, Schools Should Add-On: Now is the Time to Implement New Access Solutions

Sweet summertime is here. For the kids, that means weeks of uninterrupted fun until the next school year starts. For adults, however, it is the time when planning becomes actionable and development begins. One thing no school should skimp on this summer is making sure their accessibility access is not only up to code, but also safe, functional, and appealing.


The PATHWAY® Code Compliant Modular Access System is an ideal solution for schools because it is durable and dependable. It meets compliance standards set by the ADA, IBC, OSHA as well as most local building codes. Our aluminum ramp systems won’t deteriorate even under the highest traffic. And unlike wood ramps, the PATHWAY® won’t require additional maintenance or repair over time. It is made to sit right against a portable classroom and can be adjusted for almost any need.


Another thing schools should think about is the day-to-day safety of utilizing old and out-of-date wood ramps. Safety is always a priority and EZ-ACCESS prides itself on offering the best solutions for your school’s needs. From uneven surfaces to splinters and rusty nails, there is no better time than the summer to give your wood ramps the axe!


Finally, the PATHWAY® is the right choice for your school because it is now even more customizable than ever. As we mentioned in a previous blog, a student’s academic achievement is tied directly to the environment in which they learn. So why not complement the exterior of your school even more by powder coating the ramp? Black, bronze, and tan are the standard options available. Not only is the coating aesthetically pleasing, but it can also help blend the system in with its surroundings.

The best time to update your school is in the summer when the kids are away. It gives your team the necessary time to address the safety concerns and also the accessibility needs of your school.
