The quality of service offered by any facility should not discriminate
against disabled people, swimming pools included. Disabled people should
also be encouraged to participate in all sports and fitness activities.
Traditionally, poolside hoists are commonplace for safe entry into the
pool. However, after consultation with disabled groups and access
specialists, we discovered that disabled people feel uncomfortable with
the public spectacle of being manoeuvred into a busy pool by hoist;
furthermore, there were concerns about the planning implications of
incorporating ramped access. Our Disabled Access Platforms and Moveable
Steps have been specifically designed to overcome these problems.
