Strolling around the city in a wheelchair can certainly come with its challenges, but a British company by the name of Allgood Trio has came up with a revolutionary solution to get up stairs in the urban jungle. Their novel Sesame Stairs provide a sleek and effective way to enter into any building.
Buildings located in downtown areas in the US, Britain and Australia must comply with the Disabilities Act and to due so is sometimes very difficult when limited by space. Taking that into consideration, the guys at Allgood came up with these retractable stairs that open up to reveal an electric chair lift.
Each building can actually tailor make the Sesame Stairs to go along with their facade. Wether the building’s entrance is large or narrow, has a historic facade or is ultra modern, the stairs make a perfect way to provide everyone with equal access.
The video below provides footage of the stairs in action. With the push of a button the system is activated and this innovative set of stairs transforms.
