Home Entry Accessibility
Having an accessible entryway can seem like a challenge, but Menards has all the products 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, because it can deter unwanted visitors from entering your home.
