Ramp systems are one of the simplest and least costly ways to improve access. Ramps require minimal changes to existing structures and do not require any power. They can provide access for those with wheelchairs, crutches, canes or walkers. Ramps are usually installed in much less time than other solutions, being therefore a great remedy when timing becomes an issue.
Quick, easy and inexpensive, portable ramps can be set up when needed and taken down the rest of the time. These ramps are a fantastic choice for disabled visitors, allowing you to make your home accessible for them without permanent modification.
For situations where a ramp will be used long term, a semi permanent ramp is best. These systems are professionally designed to fit your needs, space and budget. These ramps can later be removed with no damage to the existing structure.
Important: Consult your equipment owner's guide for proper degree of incline; never exceed the recommendations.

Solutions for Independent Living recommends 1:12 for safety considerations. When that is not possible, regulations allow for reasonable accommodation, meaning a slightly shorter ramp can be used. We want all ramps to be safe for you and a caregiver to use.
