International Day of Persons with Disabilities: how flooring makes a difference

December 3 marks the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Today, the United Nations raise awareness worldwide on how to make a positive impact on the lives of people with impaired mobility. A cause in which Quick-Step has a part to play as well.

Quick-Step flooring, perfect for people with disabilities

Breaking barriers

Handrails, wider doors, ramps instead of stairs ... There are many ways to make a building more accessible for people with impaired mobility. Good flooring can make a difference. A stable, comfortable floor — with excellent anti-slip and wear-resistant qualities — offers greater stability for people who rely on walking canes, wheelchairs or walkers.

At work

This year, the UN particularly highlights the role of technology in how to create an enabling working environment. At the office, laminate flooring answers the need for stability of people with impaired mobility. Protective measures, like the Scratch Guard layer, enhance a floor’s durability and protect it from wear from wheelchairs or canes.

At home

At home, laminate flooring has a lot of mobility benefits to offer as well. Laminate floors not only match any style, they’re also easy to install and extremely durable. A perfect fit for people in need of safe and lasting comfort.
