Cost efficiency is generally the driving factor when local authorities start looking for alternative ramping systems. The choice of Flexiloc could reap considerable cost savings on housing stock alone. A tenant in local-authority housing has had a stroke that is seriously impairing her mobility. Carers are eager that the woman should not be re-housed and request that access to the house be altered. Simply and quickly a Flexiloc straight ramp can be constructed to the house’s front door. As the tenant’s mobility improves in the months after her stroke, she no longer requires the ramp. Local authority staff can come and dismantle the ramp in less than an hour. They reuse pieces from the ramp to construct another ramp elsewhere for another council tenant. The house looks just as it did before the ramp was constructed.
