Accessibility is a unique challenge for those who have outfitted their homes with accommodations and modifications that may not be readily available while traveling. Beyond location and price, quite a few guests have accessibility concerns. These can include reaching the bed or sink, knowing when the phone rings, feeling safe and being treated with dignity. Many hotels are not even aware of the issues differently abled guests experience when traveling for work or pleasure. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires all hotels to make their facilities equally accessible to those who are differently abled. The following solutions enable your property to be in compliance with the ADA.
ADA Compliance Economy Guest Room Kit
Guests who are hard of hearing or deaf need to know when someone is knocking on their door, the phone is ringing and that it is time to wake up. This Krown kit includes a visual door knock signaler, handset telephone amplifier, visual telephone ring signaler and an alarm clock with bed shaker, all in a soft shell case. Portable, convenient and economical, this solution can be set up in any guest room, including ADA mobility rooms.
ADA Compliance Deluxe Guest Room Kit with Visual Emergency Notification System
Our ADA Compliance Deluxe Kit meets the current ADA communication access requirements in full. The visual emergency notification system is to be used as a bridge from the hotel’s existing built-in fire alarm to the strobe and sound receiver placed in the room of a hearing-impaired guest. The transmitter sends a wireless signal to the strobe and sound receiver to notify your guest of an emergency. It also offers an alarm clock with a bed shaker, doorbell transmitter, visual telephone signaler, and handset telephone amplifier in a soft shell case.
