Wheelchair Ramp Installation in Scott Depot, WV
Wheelchair ramps allow those using wheelchairs and walkers to reach elevations that would normally require steps, such as a porch or deck. They are also used by individuals who have trouble traversing typical steps. Ramps can be built from many different materials including wood, steel, aluminum and composite materials. They can be permanent, semi-permanent or portable.
Permanent and semi-permanent ramps are typically made of aluminum, concreate, or wood. These ramps can be designed to match the current look and color of your existing porch/deck to make for a more cohesive look.
Portable ramps (also called modular ramps) are made of aluminum and can fold up for ease of transportation. These ramps can often be rented for extended length of time and are great for temporary use.
Ramps must be carefully designed in order to be useful, fit into the available space and to make sure they meet the appropriate requirements. The ADA standard for a ramp is 12 inches of length per every inch of elevation, commonly referred to as the 12:1 ratio.
