When you’re in your home, you get from room to room by traveling through doorways. Many of those doorways aren't constructed to be entirely level though. Instead, a slight step up or step down may await you at every threshold. But that step might not be so easy to navigate if you or someone you love has mobility issues. That's where the TRANSITIONS® Angled Entry Plate for raised door thresholds comes into play. It is a simple and safe way to make sure that doorways aren't a challenge even for someone who uses assistive devices or is at risk of slipping or falling.
For anyone who may need to modify their thresholds for easier navigation around the home, this blog will cover the features of the TRANSITIONS Angled Entry Plate to help you determine if this is the right solution for you.
What are the main features of the TRANSITIONS Angled Entry Plate?
The TRANSITIONS Angled Entry Plate is a stand-alone piece that acts as a small ramp to make transitions through doorways with raised thresholds, much smoother. It is a single piece of aluminum that doesn't contain any moving parts, which means no assembly is required. It is simply set in place and it’s ready to be used, making this an incredibly quick and convenient solution. While the plate is portable and can be moved from one doorway to the next, it does come with pre-drilled holes that make it easy to screw it into a permanent spot for secure placement.
The entry plate is covered with a black, slip-resistant textured surface to help ensure a secure grip when using the plate either indoors or outdoors.
The TRANSITIONS Angled Entry Plate comes in three different sizes to ensure a good fit for your doorway. There are 8, 10 and 12-inch plates available that can accommodate up to a 2-inch threshold. The plate itself weighs five pounds or less but is capable of holding 700 pounds.
Every plate comes with a lifetime warranty and is made in the U.S.A.
