A balcony or terrace is a great place on beautiful summer days and evenings. For most people, these areas become an extra room over the summer season. However, for a wheelchair user, it may be difficult if not impossible, to access a balcony or terrace. 

Most balconies and terraces are designed in such a way that the floor level is lower than the floor level of the building interior. This is, of course, to ensure the interior of the building against water from outside.

Under normal circumstances, a ramp can give a wheelchair user easy access to the balcony or terrace. But what happens when the balcony is small and narrow? Situations where a ramp would take up too much space? In these types of situations, the optimal solution is to actually "raise" the whole level of the balcony. The Excellent Six-Pack tile is a low weight, low priced and incredibly strong product which is perfectly suited to this type of application. With Excellent Six-Pack tiles, water from rain, snow, etc. can easily drain through the tile elements to the underlying floor, and at the same time provide a stable and usable floor.

A ramp is not always the best solution - especially when space is limited.
If the floor level is increased, the user will have optimal access to the balcony. Excellent tiles and Six-Pack tiles drain water from the balcony surface and weigh only a fraction of alternative solutions such as concrete tiles.
