Amramp offering ADA compliant pool lifts

Posted: Friday, November 4, 2011

New Federal ADA laws mandate that all public pools (new and existing) are accessible by March 15, 2012. Amramp, a leading accessibility solutions provider, carries ADA compliant pool and spa lifts, including completely portable units with no anchors required, to bring facilities into compliance quickly and affordably.

“Accessibility and ADA compliance is a focus of Amramp, and the Amramp portable pool lift system is a fantastic way for someone in a wheelchair to get into and out of a pool,” stated Loretta Mottram, senior director of business development. “Our goal is to prevent businesses from receiving fines of up to $55,000 for the first offense, $110,000 for the second offense and preventing possible pool closures which have already been imposed in some areas. This is just another way that Amramp continues to provide accessibility solutions for people where they live, work and play,” Mottram concluded.

The Amramp pool lift system allows for an easy transition to and from the pool, and meets ADA accessibility guidelines. The pool lift system can also be portable to any location on a pool deck and extends outward past the pool gutter on in-ground pools and the side of above-ground pools.

The Amramp ADA experts can assure compliance and help businesses avoid fines or pool closures, and offers free evaluations. For more information and for pricing on the Amramp pool lift system please call Josh Burkhardt at Amramp at (260) 519-0101, e-mail him at josh.burkhardt@amramp.com, or visit www.amramp.com/pool_lifts.

Amramp allows for families and businesses to rent or purchase an ADA compliant, low cost, modular ramp, featuring a patented non-slip ramp surface. The unique, perforated steel mesh ramp surface has an open pattern, allowing moisture to drain, reducing the possibility of a slippery ice surface or mold build-up.

Amramp offers free home evaluations and meets with each client to custom design the ramp. Ramps are available in days, not weeks or months, and most installations take less than a day. In addition to pool lifts, Amramp, the newest division of Pathfinder Services, Inc., specializes in modular wheelchair ramps, providing accessibility solutions for clients in northeastern Indiana.
