Although not a permanent solution to the three steps at 19 Duncan St. (where Michael, Laura and I work) the folding ramp does the trick. We see this option as a great cost-effective means for cash-strapped businesses to offer a level of barrier free access most with a similar storefront may not have realized was possible. Spread the word. Make it your mission this weekend to get a business in your neighborhood to invest in a simple ramp, a homemade plywood ramp works just as well and can be left outside during business hours. Shed some light on the fact that a ramp makes life easier
It might not be the most sexy design we have come across but the owners of this butcher shop on the Danforth have come up with a real nifty way of enabling themselves to work behind the counter and open the door for patrons... at the same time! Truly fantastic! Yes... that's a rubber chicken.
