Portable Wheelchair Ramps

Portable Wheelchair Ramps #2We sell and install portable wheelchair ramps, including ADA certified custom-built modular aluminum units that attach together piece by piece, portable aluminum units that fold up into a suitcase for getting a scooter or wheelchair into and out of your vehicle, as well as rubber wheelchair ramps to get you over small humps in doorways and before landing platforms. These systems are a more permanent solution for anyone with limited mobility, whether you use a cane, walker, wheelchair, or scooter. They provide greater safety and freedom when constructed properly, and they permit the user safe and easy passage into and out of the building.

Our experts will carefully consider the unique characteristics of your home and vehicle, the assistive device that will be used, and whether the user will need assistance. We’ll identify the best type of ramp for you, so that it's protected from the weather, so that it maintains your privacy, and so that it provides a convenient entry into your home or vehicle. We will make sure the ramp is the safest and easiest to navigate out of all the possible combinations. Accessible Solutions doesn't use a cookie-cutter approach to selling and installing these platforms like our competitors do — each ramp is designed specifically for that customer's home and vehicle, and we take pleasure in providing top quality service to our customers.

In many cases, lack of safe egress poses not only immobility, but also a severe safety hazard — especially in case of fire, if the disabled individual does not have safe egress. If the inclination is not constructed properly, it quickly turns from being a safety feature into one that is hazardous and not easy to use. For this reason, ramps with the purpose of getting into your home are designed and constructed at the ADA's recommended 1:12 pitch. This means that for every one inch of elevation, there is one foot of ramp so that in case the user does not have a power wheelchair, they can still have safe and easy access into the home. A less steep rise can be easier for a wheelchair user to navigate and is much safer in icy climates.

These aluminum ramps can be removed later on and are custom-built to the specifications of each customer's home, so they don't require drastically modifying the home for installation. They are made from durable, non-corrosive aluminum that won't rust, and usually incorporate a continuous intermediate handrail installed at 19" above the deck as/if needed— designed specifically for the safety and convenience of the user.

Portable Wheelchair Ramps #1Folding and portable aluminum ramps have a low profile and can support up to eight-hundred pounds at a time. Multi-fold units such as the tri-fold model make using a mobility product easy in a variety of places at home and outdoors, including over entrances and small staircases. An eight-foot unit can fold down to four feet and fit into the trunk of your vehicle, so you can take it anywhere for travel. Single-fold units offer a reliable solution for transitioning other obstacles, including curbs and thresholds.

Our EZEdge™ portable rubber ramps offer the ease of entering your home or navigating interior thresholds without having to rebuild the slope of your entryways. These 100% recycled rubber ramps allow you to effortlessly transition from one height to another. Rubber threshold ramps provide a safe, durable means of navigating small steps, doorway thresholds, and other uneven household surfaces. A hidden dovetail allows for easy installation and incremental platform height adjustment of up to six inches with a locking lip system. Their modular design makes rubber threshold risers a practical and affordable home accessibility solution. EZEdge™ units come with a 10-year guarantee and have no weight limitations, ensuring durable and maintenance free use.
