AccessWood – The innovative wooden grating

AccessWood - The wooden walkway accessible to people with reduced mobility and the disabled

A wooden grating accessible to people with reduced mobility:

The wooden path

AccessWood is a wooden grating which meets the seasonal accessibility needs and respects the landscape integration.

Our wooden grating (treated wood class IV from sustainably managed forests) is designed to withstand outdoor conditions (marine environment, bad weather etc.) and will allow you to easily create access on your sites for pedestrians, people with reduced mobility, families with strollers, etc.

To best fit your terrain, we chose to develop two types of wooden gratings.

∙ AccessWood (straps system) which allows both to create access on soft grounds like sandy beaches and face dunes.

∙ AccessWood (system with beams) which allows to create access on flat and regular grounds like grass and concrete.


AccessWood (straps system)

AccessWood is the ideal solution both to create beach access and face dunes. AccessWood meets the expectations of public bodies and private beaches.

Define your project with our team to build the solution adapted to your project.

For easy maintenance (replacement of a batten), we have assembled our batten with 3 polyester straps and A4 class hardware (which resists acidity and salinity). This operation carried out in our workshops in Lorraine guarantees a controlled spacing that meets accessibility standards.

Tailor-made to your project, we can offer you our AccessWood in widths from 1m to 1m80. Delivered in modules of 2m maximum length, we guarantee you a quick installation (easy handling with 2 people) and an optimal storage (flat on a pallet - see photo storage AccessWood).

The sections are assembled one to the other with wooden shims which come to be easily screwed after the installation of the whole track. Two people can install a 100m section in one hour.


AccessWood (system with beams)

AccessWood is the ideal solution to create access on flat and regular grounds: grass, concrete etc.

The wooden grating is composed by three wooden beams and A4 class hardware (which resists acidity and salinity).

Delivered in modules of 1m, we guarantee you a quick installation (easy handling with 2 people) and an optimal storage (flat on a pallet - see photo storage AccessWood).

The sections are assembled one to the other with wooden shims which come to be easily screwed after the installation of the whole track. Two people can install a 100m section in one hour.

Aesthetics

AccessWood is made of wood (100% pine) which gives it this beautiful natural wood color. It allows you to define an access road on your site while respecting the landscape integration.


pieds-nus
Comfortable and safe

The AccessWood grating allows you to create access paths on any type of loose grounds (sand, grass etc.). The controlled intervals between the slats meet the accessibility standards.


durable
Durable

AccessWood is an innovative product because if a batten is damaged, it is easy to change it individually. Simply lift the path and unscrew the slat from the strap/beam (depending on the chosen AccessWood version) to replace it. Replacing the slats is very simple, which considerably increases the service life of the AccessWood grating.


recyclable
Environmentally friendly

The pine used for our gratings comes from sustainably managed forests (PEFC certified). The wooden path allows you to channel the flow of pedestrians in order to avoid damaging your natural spaces.
