Accessibility

As part of our continuing commitment to provide safe and improved accessibility for everyone attending the events that we are involved with, Eventpower is very pleased to announce that we now have a large stock of Yellow Jacket WASP cable covers in our Vancouver warehouse!
The most obvious benefit of using these low angle ramps is that they can be easily accessed using carts, dollies, strollers and most importantly, wheelchairs. The slip resistant surface provides efficient traction for multiple applications and is strong enough to handle constant forklift traffic.
The avenues of approach, slip resistance, non-conductivity, and the low 4.8-degree ramp angle meet all US ADA specifications and guidelines for ramps. Available tapered side ramps on the WASP AMS provide access that is “barrier free” and displays the ADA wheelchair symbol. The most innovative part of this ramp system is that it allows several center sections to be combined for extra wide ramps when needed for multiple cable runs. This eliminates the hard to negotiate “peaks and valley speed bumps” created by multiple rows of standard cable mats.
These units are currently being supplied at no additional charge in high traffic areas of our setups and are also available for rent, with priority and significant discounts being given to charity and non-profit organizations that may benefit from greater accessibility to their events.
We regularly deploy our wheelchair ramps at our larger events and consistently receive incredibly positive feedback. As a result, we now double our inventory of ADA ramps annually which enables us to improve accessibility to all of the concerts, festivals, sporting and special events that we power.
