Wessex To Name New Product - May 2005
Wessex introduced their new lifting platform in May/June 2005. The product which Wessex believes will used successfully to overcome changes of level up to one-metre, will be compatible with changes in level in both domestic and commercial properties. To make the attractive stainless steel and glass product even more memorable, Wessex is breaking with tradition and giving the product a brand name. Wessex believes that this lifting platform will contribute even more to their reputation as Specialists in Low Rise Lifting Platforms.
Disability Discrimination Act
This act will be finally implemented in October 2004.
Wessex has been a great supporter of the Act and has been ensuring that the products they sell meets the needs of both the disabled and the customer.
John Lewis who are a company known for their Quality Products have worked for many years providing access throughout their stores. Wessex has recently worked with Waitrose (part of the John Lewis Partnership) in providing not only access throughout their flagship store in Canary Wharf but a product that matches the quality image that is so much a part of the John Lewis success.
With the need to make more and more buildings access friendly in
line with current legislation Wessex was chosen because of its range
of products, their quality of build and their reputation for service
to work with Gala Bingo in their campaign to make their outlets
access friendly. Wessex have worked in their Bingo Halls and Casinos
throughout the UK to ensure they maintain their market position.
The co-operation of two successful companies working to support
the principles laid out in the DDA is an excellent example of what
"the act" will mean for the less able in the UK.
Wessex leads the way for Home Lifts in purpose built "ACCESS FRIENDLY HOMES"
The Governments plans of providing a percentage of new build social housing as access friendly homes for the less able has been very successful. Wessex has been in the forefront of this campaign working closely with John Grooms, Housing Associations and Building Contractors.
The Wessex Home Lift is ideal for this situation, this has been
recognised yet again by a leading Building Contractor who have nominated
Wessex as their preferred supplier for a significant number
of our lifts for a large site in the South of England.
Wessex gives people the lift they need.
