Wall Guards for Wheelchair Users

The homes of physically disabled individuals have to accommodate for the wheelchair user. Each area should be accessible for the wheelchair user and the wheelchair should be able to be used around the home without any problems.

When using a wheelchair within a house the walls may suffer from scratches and scuff marks from the wheelchair. For this reason, wall guards have been developed. Wall guards ensure that damage is restricted to a minimum.

Wall guards come in a variety of sizes to suit every kind of wall. They range in height from 3 inches to 6 inches. The smaller wheelchair wall guards are used low on the walls as these serve to protect from damage made by the wheels of the wheelchair. The taller variants are used to protect against potential scratches from the wheelchair arm rests.
