Disability Compliant Reception Desk
We provide a number of Reception desks which accommodate the disabled under DDA requirements (Disability Discrimination Act 1995). This type of provision can take different forms. It may be that the provision of a low section of desk to enable someone in a wheelchair make eye contact with the receptionist is all that is necessary. However, if the client has to fill out forms or have longer discussions across the desk, then it will be necessary to provide clear legroom underneath. This needs to be sufficient to provide for unimpeded movement and a turning circle to allow the chair to be rotated. Other requirements may be contrasting colours are to be used to distinguish the top from the front to assist the visually impaired. Other provisions which may be needed include hearing loops to aid communication.
We will be happy to discuss the particular requirements you may have for your Reception area to assist you to fully comply with current legislation and ensure that all of your visitors enjoy the best experience when visiting your premises.
