Recently, I learned of all the restrictions that a person who is handicapped has on a day to day basis. I have 2 family members who are physically handicapped. I was shocked to find how hard it was for them to move around in and out of public buildings, private buildings, apartment buildings and hotels. For years our company has fabricated and powder coated projects for these facilities, including handrails, stair rails and cane detection rails. However, after helping my relatives live “life” in these buildings, I was stunned to find out how unequipped many of these spaces are.
What are Cane Detection Rails? Vertical cane detection barrier which allows detection of an overhead obstruction at the floor level by someone with a visual impairment before that person bumps into the overhead protrusion.Here is the link to learn more: ADA Requirements
