John Piper writes, "The most meaningful testimonies I receive are when people tell me that it was a vision of the sovereignty and goodness of God that got them through the most difficult times of their life. Here is one of those testimonies. I tremble with the glad responsibility of introducing you to Ian & Larissa Murphy in this video. Tremble, because it is their story and so personal. So delicate. So easily abused. So unfinished. Glad, because Christ is exalted over all things." Read more at desiringgod.org/blog/posts/the-story-of-ian-larissa

Since the introduction of the DDA and subsequently the Equality Act, many buildings have struggled to provide a means of access to their property that is barrier-free and ensures access for all. Even the smallest numbers of steps at the entrance of a building can provide a huge obstacle to visitors to a building and can lead to a situation where some visitors cannot access the building without assistance. Frequently, the property will install a retrofit solution that is difficult to use and can be an eyesore to the existing façade of the building. Sesame from Allgood Trio is a new innovative system that solves this issue by ensuring access for all whilst providing a discreet and aesthetically pleasing solution for the building.
Technologically advanced, the Sesame system from Allgood Trio is tailored to each individual entrance and supplied and installed by our team of engineers. The secret to the system is the way that the retractable stair lift platform is installed beneath the existing stairs, utilising the stairs in the process. This then means that when not in use, the Sesame system cannot be seen and the aesthetic of the building is not unduly affected. Once activated, the system retracts the existing stairs to reveal the lift which can be programmed to work automatically or at the touch of a button. The result is a concealed stair lift that is easy to use, retains the existing aesthetic of the building whilst not taking up space when not in use.
The video above demonstrates the system at one of our installations. Take time to watch it and if you require any further information on the system, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01708 345067 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The opening scene of Mountains Without Barriers begins as a straightforward climbing story. What isn’t immediately obvious is that the two of the three climbers, Erik Weihenmayer and Andy Holzer, are blind and the third, Hugh Herr, is a double-leg amputee. They are participating in the No Barriers Festival, which seeks to improve quality of life through spirit and technology. The festival creates opportunities for people with disabilities to learn new skills and to exchange ideas and dreams with those who create the technologies to assist them…
