Determining the Ramp You Need
When choosing a ramp, there are different factors to consider:
Rise: Measure the vertical height that you are climbing with the ramp from the ground to the desired platform.
Length: Dictated by the rise, make sure that is ample clearance for barrier free access.
Weight: Add the total weight of the power chair/scooter to the user weight, and make sure that number is under the ramp weight capacity. Our ramps can accommodate up to 800 lbs of total weight.
Width: The width of your power chair/scooter should be smaller than the ramp total width for to clear on either side.
