To request a CafeTO Curb Ramp, have a look at the diagram and follow the steps below to take your curb measurements and photos.
1. Take a photo of the entire patio area.
Take a look at your patio area and envision the placement of the curb ramp. You will want to place your curb ramp in an area where there is enough space for a person using a mobility device to make a turn at street level by the base of the ramp and on the sidewalk above the ramp. You will need 42″ of space in addition to the length of the ramp (which is 6 times the height of the curb) to provide a turning radius that works for many mobility aids, but not all. That’s why it’s really important to choose modular furniture options, so tables and chairs can be easily moved in order to create more clearance. Take a picture of the entire patio area including the curb and the sidewalk.
2. Take two photos, 40″ apart, of your curb height measurement using a standard imperial tape measure placed up against the curb to show the measurement.
One on the left side. The other on the right.
Take these photos with the camera aimed straight-on and at level with the curb to make sure we’re able to get clear and accurate measurements. Please include a small sign in the photo noting the side the measurement is being taken on.
Once you have your measurements and photos, please fill out the form below, and select “CafeTO” for the location type.
*NOTE: If you’ve sent us a regular ramp request while we’ve been on pause over the last two years, your request is on a waiting list that we will be working through over the next few months. Stay tuned for an email from our team with more info and thank you for your patience ❤️ Like all small businesses, we’ve had many challenging moments over the pandemic, but we are thrilled to finally get back to building ramps for you.
We are always striving to provide equal access
Here at Charlie’s having a StopGap ramp in our space has significantly improved our customer, volunteer, and staff’s experience using the entrance. As a bike shop, the obvious benefit is the ease of entering and exiting the shop with a bike in hand, but it’s also added so much more. We are always striving to provide equal access to everyone in the community, and to be an ally whenever we can. Because we are both a shop, and community charity space it meant a lot to us to be able to make our storefront accessible. Thank you StopGap!
We are thrilled to be able to accommodate
Originally, our busy downtown restaurant only had one wheelchair accessible entrance which was through our side door. We were always more than happy to assist and accommodate all of our patrons but it could occasionally prove to be an inconvenience for all parties involved. Fortunately, we were informed about getting in touch with the very friendly folks at StopGap. There it was: a mobile, yet very sturdy gateway through our front doors. Now all of our customers can enter through our front door with ease and dignity and we are thrilled to be able to accommodate them as such.
