Have you asked yourself “Is my business ADA compliant?”
The American Disabilities Act of 1990 was established to have businesses make their places of business barrier- free.
What does that mean?
Simply put, make it easy for handicapped people to get in and out of your place of business.
Becoming ADA Compliant means more customers for your business
If you made it easy for EVERYONE to avail themselves of your business you would certainly have more business. Many people think that you need to build some kind of contraption to make all this happen. Even the Federal Government offers two Tax Incentives to help make improvements more affordable.
Put yourself in the position of someone who cannot walk and has to use a wheelchair to get around. Maybe if you actually got in a wheelchair for an hour and tried to do your normal activities you would understand how hard it is to do some of the simplest things in daily life.
Many of our veterans are coming home with disabilities. These people put their lives on the line for us to be free and “independent”. So, why can’t we help them be independent too?
In the hair care field, many salon owners thought that it would cost too much to revamp their establishments to assist handicapped people. Thankfully, there are inexpensive ways to do this. Rose Pedals, Inc. designed a footrest for salon chairs for the handicapped and the disabled.
The design is a simple adaptation of the existing “U” shaped footrest that is standard with most styles of chairs. Simply replace the existing “U” shaped footrest with the Rose Pedals Salon Footrest and you open the doors to many people who have difficulty getting in and out of a salon chair.
Fortunately, many Assisted Living Communities and Nursing Homes around the country are now using the Rose Pedal Footrest. Rose Pedals, Inc. is make strides in helping many in regular salons as well as Assisted communities and Nursing homes.
