Our Philosophy

Some of most beautiful views and most wonderful memories are beachside !

AccessRec Europe prides its business on affordability, quality and efficiency, mirroring the successful business model of its American sister company.

Although we strive to make our products the most affordable on the market to allow more beach and recreation communities to expand their access for all, we also maintain our expectation that these products be the best on the market.

In ensuring high quality standards, AccessRec focuses on the performance of our products in every stage, from design, to manufacturing and the ultimate end use. Our AccessMat® prototype was tested for a period of one year undergoing some high pedestrian and wheelchair traffic on beaches in New Jersey, New York and Florida.

In addition, some communities have been using our products for more than three years. Key focus areas included durability, stability and maneuverability. While our AccessMat® provides all of these things, the highlight of the product is its simplicity. We know that simplicity is particularly important for beach staff.

AccessMat® is the lightest beach access mat, allowing not only for easy installation, but also easy removal because the particular design of AccessMat® eliminates sand build up between the filaments of the mat during usage.


Our ambitions

Beaches and leisure bases are relaxing spots and meeting places. Our solutions make your sites accessible and attractive for all (pregnant women, strollers, persons on crutches, pedestrians, elderly people and people with disabilities, etc) and reduce discrimination and exclusion.

Our History

A family business, AccessRec, LLC, was founded in March 2013 by Sebastien Ragon and his wife, Kristen Welsh Ragon in Clifton, NJ - USA.

The development of AccessRec was truly inspired by both Sebastien and Kristen’s passion for leisure and recreational activities, as a holistic approach for healthy living.

Their mission is to provide safe and effective access to recreational opportunities for individuals of all abilities, with key objectives of assessing the needs of communities, evaluating and improving products, and further developing universal access to outdoor recreation.

AccessRec quickly had huge success, expanding internationally to respond to its customers all over the world.

The success and customer satisfaction in the USA motivated Yannick Ragon, Sebastien’s brother, to impliment AccessRec Europe in March 2015. AccessRec Europe, located in Nancy, France in the center of Europe, can easily and quickly meet European customers’ needs.

From beach access chairs to beach access mats, AccessRec Europe offers a range of products to improve safe access to water-based recreation.

AccessRec Europe is proud to have many customers all over the world and hopes that you will soon become a customer of ours. Please feel free to contact us to request any references.
