If you use a wheelchair, reaching items hanging on a high closet rod is often a challenge. Using a garment hook can be awkward, and some clothing items such as bulky winter coats may be too heavy to manipulate easily. But there is an alternative. At the Barrier Free Store, we can modify your closet systems to better suit your needs. Based out of Marquette, we are the Upper Peninsula’s go-to company for top-of-the-line products and expert installation services that allow homeowners to age in place comfortably and confidently. One of our representatives will be happy to visit your home to inspect your closet systems and offer suggestions on ways to make them more accessible. We offer a wide variety of products from Rev-A-Shelf®, one of the most respected shelving and closet accessory manufacturers in the nation.
One innovative way to adapt closet systems so they better suit your mobility needs is by installing pull-down rods. Unlike fixed closet rods, these bars are built on a framework that allows them to pivot forward and down by 90 degrees, thus lowering all the clothes hanging on them to chair height with just a tug. Available in three sizes, these bars are capable of bearing up to 25 pounds and feature:
And to complete your new closet systems, we can install pants, belt, and shoe organizers, pullout baskets, valet rods, and more. We can also install drop-down kitchen shelving, usually in just a single day.
To learn more about any of the home improvement products we offer, contact us today and schedule a complimentary accessibility assessment at your home. The Barrier Free Store is proud to provide our neighbors in Marquette and throughout the Upper Peninsula with the services they need to maintain their independence and quality of life.
