Portable Wheelchair Ramp Types

Portable Wheelchair and scooter ramps are easy to install and an economical alternative to custom built wheelchair ramps.

Portable wheelchair ramps are available in several styles to suit your specific application.


ADA compliant wheelchair ramp slope

How long do wheelchair ramps need to be?

Wheelchair ramps typically need to be 1 inch in length per inch in rise. This means if you have a 1 inch step, you would need a ramp with a length of 12 inches. ADA requires a slope of no more than 1:12 ( 12" length per 1" rise ).
