The best in class wheelchair ramp
A handrail on both sides of
the ramp provide stability for
anyone who struggles with stairs
and, for safety, keeping individuals
from falling off the ramps.
Handrails are required on all
wheelchair ramps over 6 feet
long or over 6 inches high.
That means ramps for two
or more steps will require
handrails for safety and
stability, and the top handrail
should be mounted between
30 and 34 inches above the ramp.
Rails are extended over the end
of the ramp to provide a grip
for people using a wheelchair as
they approach the ramp.
A platform at the door provides
a level surface to turn around
or stop to open the door without
falling back on the sloped ramp.
The platform is designed to extend 2
feet beyond the door to allow the
door to swing open and provide
a safe space for someone in a wheelchair.
UNIQUE OPEN MESH SURFACE
The Amramp surface allows moisture
to pass through and prevents puddles,
snow, ice and mold build up.
Wood, aluminum and concrete are
solid surfaces which allow moisture
to accumulate and become dangerous
in certain weather conditions.
Amramp offers the most slip resistant
According to the
Americans with Disabilities Act
(ADA), a safe wheelchair ramp
should have a maximum slope
of 1 foot for every inch of rise
and should be at least 36 inches wide.
For example, if you have 3 stairs
that are each 7 inches high, the
wheelchair ramp should be at
least 21 feet long.
