Standard Wheelchairs: Standard wheelchairs are easy. A simple pull-and-lift up the stairs by one or two people – or a carry, if you’d rather – gets people in and out. We’ve done that many times here. We are well acquainted with the pull-and-lift procedure and how to manage it safely. A standard wheelchair works great inside or outside at Chase Court.
Electric Wheelchairs: Because there is no provision for permanent ramps or anchoring for temporary ramps, electric wheelchairs, which run about 300 pounds empty, aren’t able to enter the building. They are also not suited for use within the building.
An electric wheelchair is fine in the ceremony garden if the user can navigate a five-inch bump-up from the street.
Exterior Doorways: Our two guest entrances are large double doors, more than wide enough for the widest wheelchairs. The Chase Street entrance has hand railings.
Interior Doorways: There are double doors leading into the ballroom. The door openings into the two restrooms are 26” and 32”, respectively. The guest restrooms are on the same level as the ballroom. You would want assistance with transfer in the restrooms.
