Breaking Barriers: Superior is Contributing to Uphold Ontario’s Accessibility Laws
Ontario has been working to build laws that improve accessibility needs for those with disabilities.
Ontario’s accessibility laws and standards are working towards all public facilities becoming more accessible for people with disabilities by the year 2025. For all information on Ontario’s Accessibility laws and requirements, click here.
Barriers to Accessibility
Barriers to accessibility are obstacles that make it difficult for people with disabilities to do the things we do on a daily basis that many take for granted. This includes daily activities like going to work, shopping, taking public transit, or even using a public washroom.
In order to make Ontario more accessible to people with disabilities, the law requires all organization to identify any barriers that prove difficult for a person with a disability and remove or remedy them. This is in an effort to make customer service more accessible to people who have disabilities.
Any organizations that either serve the public or provides goods/services to other businesses/organizations must abide by this law.
How Does Superior Help You Comply with the Ontario Accessibility Laws?
Our areas within the Ontario accessibility law include entrance doors and washroom doors that require an automatic opener. We can update existing doors with an automatic opener in order to make them comply with the new standards for accessibility laws.
Examples of where automatic door openers need to be included are:
Schools * Office buildings
Restaurants * Retail Stores
Public washrooms * All related public buildings
We can also install and service new, high speed and efficient doors fitted with automatic door openers if your facility requires. As all public services and facilities will need to be made fully accessible to people with disabilities, we highly recommend that your business or organization is prepared.
