Custom prefab homes are a great option for those who are looking for an affordable and flexible housing solution. However, for those who use a wheelchair, accessibility can be a significant concern and will need a wheelchair accessible mobile home. Fortunately, there are several ways to make a mobile home wheelchair accessible. These are the top essential modifications you can make to your affordable manufactured home to ensure it is accessible and safe for wheelchair users!
The first thing Titan will need to do is install ramps leading to the entrance of your custom prefab home. Ramps should be wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair and have a non-slip surface, Titan will help you find the perfect ramp for your home. Most custom prefab homes have narrow doorways that make it difficult for wheelchair users to pass through. Widening doorways is a must for making your custom prefab home wheelchair accessible. Titan will need to widen your interior and exterior doors to at least 32 inches. This width will provide enough space for a wheelchair user to pass comfortably through their new affordable manufactured home.
Grab bars and handrails are also essential for providing support and stability for wheelchair users in their affordable manufactured home. Our manufacturer can install grab bars and handrails in bathrooms, showers, and other areas where assistance may be needed through your affordable manufactured home. Flooring is an essential consideration for wheelchair users. Carpet can be challenging to navigate, and it can be challenging to clean in a new affordable manufactured home. Hardwood, tile, or vinyl flooring are good options as they are smooth and easy to clean. If you prefer carpet, low-pile options are best if you need a wheelchair accessible mobile home.
Fixtures Bathrooms can be a challenge for wheelchair users, but installing accessible bathroom fixtures can make a significant difference when building a wheelchair accessible mobile home. Titan will need to install a wheelchair-accessible sink, toilet, and shower. Titan can also install a handheld showerhead and a shower bench to make showering more comfortable in your wheelchair accessible mobile home or modular home. By choosing to add these home features to your wheelchair accessible mobile home you will be able to enjoy your custom prefab home to its fullest!
Making your custom prefab home accessible is not difficult, but it does require some modifications.
