RADAR Key Scheme Gets Even Better !

Posted in: 8th November 2010 by erica

The National RADAR Key Scheme has now been developed to enable accessibility using a single key to places such as public footpaths and other areas permitted for access. N&C Phlexicare, part of the Nicholls and Clarke Group of Companies have played a vital role in providing accessibility to the disabled and ambulant community. Involved heavily in research prior to designing solutions,  N&C Phlexicare offer a fully compliant MPack, equipped with all the components and dimensions to ensure full compliance to BS8300:2009 for wheelchair users and the visually impaired, who should be able to comfortably approach, transfer to and use public sanitary facilities with ease without having to extend beyond their reach range. Launched in 1981, the National RADAR Key Scheme was introduced to create a network of public access for RADAR key holders to help protect public toilets from damage, graffiti and misuse. Each year, a directory is published to detail the location of over 10,000 accessible toilets fitted with a RADAR lock key. The National RADAR Key Scheme has now been developed to enable accessibility using your single key to places such as public footpaths and other areas permitted for access. The National RADAR Key Scheme has been adopted by the National Trust, national railways and other similar organisations where it was once very difficult for the disabled to access public areas such as rural fields blocked with gates or railways where access to the platform is difficult. The implementation of the new bright Padlock, Hasp & Staple RADAR lock can overcome this. The new developments also include a RADAR Rim Lock and an accessible RADAR ramp that can be permanently fixed near to the entrance of a building and accessible using the RADAR key, avoiding the need to carry heavy and large portable ramps.
