What is the Quickest Wheelchair Ramp Option?

Lifeway offers a variety of wheelchair ramp options: modular metal, wood, concrete, portable and rental. Wheelchair ramps are utilized to assist with providing a safe and easy way for wheelchair and power chair users to get in and out of the home. If you are in immediate need of an accessible solution for the main entryway of your home, an aluminum ramp would be the quickest wheelchair ramp option for you!

Why is an Aluminum Ramp the Quickest Wheelchair Ramp Option?

  • An aluminum wheelchair ramp typically will not require a building permit. Therefore, the process of scheduling and installing the ramp will be much quicker.
  • On average, it only takes a couple of hours for our technicians to install a modular ramp system, whereas wooden and concrete ramps require much more labor time
  • Many of our locations have ramp material in stock at their warehouse, which will prevent from having to wait for the material to ship

Features of an Aluminum Modular Ramp Include:

  • Two surface options to choose from
    • Solid -- Extruded tread surface built with raised "ribs" for slip-resistance
    • Expanded -- Open weaved surface

We typically recommend solid surface as it's better for preventing snow and ice build up on an aluminum wheelchair ramp

  • Up to 1000 lb. weight capacity
  • No maintenance required
  • Aluminum will not rot or rust
  • Built to withstand the outdoor elements
  • Flexible system that can be customized to your home
  • Four handrail options for safety
  • Two-way traction

Rent an Aluminum Wheelchair Ramp

If you or a loved one is in need of an accessible solution, but are unsure how long it is needed for, we recommend you consider a rental wheelchair ramp. Renting a wheelchair ramp is also a great option for short term needs such as an injury.
