Sport Systems is committed to upholding high standards for Accessibility. Our employees are trained to recognize and accommodate different levels of abilities. We work closely with our clients to adapt and design environments that enable access, foster inclusion, and eliminate barriers. Providing accessibility goes beyond creating environments that are wheelchair accessible. 

Sport Systems takes into consideration individuals with varying abilities and designs systems that offer the highest level of safety and ease of use. The goal is to provide a safe and inclusive experience for everyone utilizing our bleacher systems.

Ontario Customers: The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) has updated accessibility requirements which will take effect January 1, 2015. Sports Systems complies with these updated standards.

Considerations for visually impaired individuals:

Colour contrasts and/or tactile pathways can be set into floors to assist visually impaired individuals to negotiate an environment. Extensions of handrails at the top and bottom of stairs and the use of a contrasting colour, provide important cues. There are new requirements for tactile walking surface indicators at the top of stairs and at platform edges, to alert pedestrians with low vision that they are entering an area of potential hazard. The width of pathways must accommodate persons using wheelchairs and scooters but also those traveling in pairs with guides or companions.
