Wheelchair Ramps for UPVC Doors

Wheelchair Ramps for UPVC Doors

Getting the right ramp for a UPVC door can be challenging.  When choosing a ramp for a UPVC door, it is important to consider factors such as the height and width of the door, the weight capacity of the ramp, the material and durability of the ramp, and any specific needs or preferences of the individuals using the ramp, such as grip or non-slip features. Some types of ramps that are suitable for UPVC doors include threshold ramps, portable ramps, modular ramps, and folding ramps. Threshold ramps are designed to bridge the gap between the floor and the door threshold, while portable ramps can be easily transported and used in different locations. Modular ramps provide a customizable solution for various height requirements, and folding ramps offer convenience and space-saving benefits. It is the aim of The Ramp Factory's blog to provide its customers with different options of wheelchair ramps that can be used to traverse UPVC doorways.

Semi-Permanent Wheelchair Ramps

Adjustable Threshold Bridge Ramp

The Adjustable Threshold Bridge Ramp can overcome thresholds of various heights. The external ramp is available in lengths up to 2440mm (8ft) whilst the internal threshold plate is 300mm or 600mm in length. The ramps are provided with a leg kit for height differences up to 70mm - 254mm (3" - 10").

Simply flip the entry plate over the threshold to create a bridge, perfect for scooters and wheelchairs to overcome UPVC thresholds. When the ramp is not required, flip the entry plate back onto the ramp. Due to the anodised surface, the ramp can be left outside. Fixing holes are provided if you wish to secure this to the ground.
