Project Summary

A very successful installation for Easiaccess. All our equipment can be requested to be any RAL colour you require, however the majority of customers go with our standard black or green. But usually this is only for the main elements of the ramp or step unit. This step unit is unique, with all elements coloured black, including all connectors, fixings, legs and feet. The existing step unit was removed, and the Easiaccess modular step unit installed with ease, contrasting well within its environment.
