The challenge

clip_image002 clip_image002[4]Finished solution

The Threshold step on the client’s front door causes him problems with him getting out of the house in his wheelchair. The ‘ramp’ that the client had improvised was a sort of landing stage to provide a level transfer station on a steeply sloping drive. The left hand picture shows the current improvisation.

The new step is the full width of the door and small window to allow for the door to be widened, 1180mm. Materials were exterior grade Baltic Birch finished with Rustin’s Plastic finish and three strips of Screwfix 50mm anti-slip tape.

The completed ‘step’ weighs some 5.4kg and has been fitted with a nylon rope handle to aid the client storing it in the garage with the wheel chair.
