When your condo or office tower is modernizing elevators this is the perfect and lower cost time to ensure accessible design is part of this.
Some of the design features to consider as both beset practice in design as well as to ensure compliance with the new Ontario Building Code include:
-mirrors in the back of the cab for those who drive their WC or Scooters in
-handrails around the cab of the elevator
-backlit floor buttons
-Auditory floor call outs
-longer door opening times to help all of us to not get squeezed between the doors.
-Signage at the arrival floors indicating the Floor in large raised lettering with high contrast and braille
