Home Entry Accessibility
Provide a Safe & Accessible Entryway
Having an accessible entryway can seem like a challenge, but Menards has all of the products that you need to make the entrance to your home welcoming while providing a sense of security. Adding a ramp and railing system can make it easier for visitors of all ages to enter your home without the concern of tripping or navigating stairs. A 36-inch wide entry door makes it easier for individuals in wheelchairs or pushing a stroller to come inside.

Lighting should also be taken into consideration when making your entryway safe and accessible. Motion activated lighting is ideal because it allows you to see where you are going without having to turn on a light. Motion activated lighting is also great for security, as it can deter unwanted visitors from entering your home.
