We can only provide this on new ramps as we can ensure they are supplied in perfect condition. What is a portable wheelchair ramp? Portable wheelchair ramps are designed to be used temporarily rather than a fixed structure. They are often folding, roll up or telescopic for ease of storage and transport. These ramps are ideal for people who travel or use the ramps on a variety of steps/thresholds.
How long should a wheelchair ramp be?
We recommend a minimum of a 1:6 gradient for manual wheelchair, or 1:8 gradient for electric wheelchairs and scooters. Since electric wheelchairs and scooters have a low ground clearance, they require a smoother gradient. A 1:12 gradient is recommended for modular ramp systems so more space is needed. You can use our ramp calculator to help you work out what ramp length you required.
We also recommend our roll up ramps are puchased 1ft longer than normal due to their large rest on connection.
