Ramps

How do I know if I should have a wheelchair ramp or lift installed to overcome the stairs outside of my home?

The number one factor that helps determine whether you'll need a wheelchair ramp or lift is the amount of space that's available for an installation. For a wheelchair ramp, you'll need one foot of ramp per inch of rise, which can turn into a very long and winding ramp if the entryway is high off the ground. The other thing to consider is the mobility of the individual in need of the accessible solutions. If you or your loved one cannot safely maneuver up the ramp alone, then a lift is going to be the better solution.

Can I sell a ramp back to you when I no longer need it? How much will I get for it?

Yes! The amount we pay varies based on use, condition and age.

Is the ramp slippery?

The surface of our aluminum ramps have a tread that helps prevent slips and falls. In fact, our aluminum surface is arguably the safest product on the market for those with limited mobility. Come into a showroom and try it for yourself.
