Modular Wheelchair Ramp Systems and the law

These systems are designed to be portable and temporary - therefore they do not need to comply with building regulations (Part M or Part K) - if you require your system to be fully compliant please get in contact as this something we can provide but the specifications need to be tailored to the installation site and for the usage (residential or commercial).
