Product Guide: Modular Wheelchair Ramp Systems

 

Modular wheelchair ramps are a semi-permanent wheelchair ramp solution that is designed to be completely customisable for homes, schools, doctors surgeries, temporary buildings and much more. While this makes them extremely versatile, it also means they come in a wide range of parts and additions that can be confusing. If you’re looking for permanent wheelchair ramps for homes or commercial buildings, then take a look at our complete product guide for modular wheelchair ramp systems.

Modular wheelchair ramps feature overview

The main feature and benefit of these ramps are, unsurprisingly, their modular capabilities. With completely modular parts this ramp system can be used to fit any entrance and space, adapting to smaller footprints or complicated angles to avoid obstructions and suit your needs.

You can use the various components and extra additions in our modular range to further customise your solution. For example, our miniramps can account for small height changes and create a smooth entrance while our platforms enable you to customise the size of the ramp to fit your footprint. This offers virtually unlimited options when it comes to fitting your ramp, allowing the system to fit into tight or awkward spaces and minimising obstruction.

Our modular ramps have been customised for commercial buildings such as museums and theatres, public buildings like schools and doctors surgeries plus homes and residential buildings.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”Adjustable” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]Telescopic legs make all our modular ramp sections completely adjustable to suit any height. Not only can you build the safest ramp for your current needs, but you can also add to your system and re-use sections in different areas by simply re-adjusting the legs to the new height required.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”Weather resistant” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]Weather resistance is a must-have for all permanent wheelchair ramps. A long life galvanised zinc coating prevents rusting so they can be left outside for months and years at a time without damage to the ramp or its safety.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”Semi-permanent solution” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]While these ramps have been designed to be used as a permanent solution if required, their modular design also makes them an ideal semi-permanent solution. You can disconnect the parts at any time and store them as needed, and re-build again at a later stage. You can also adjust your ramp over time, adding to it and taking parts away easily.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”Building regulations” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]Modular parts mean these ramps are a temporary and portable solution, which means they don’t need to comply with Part M or K building regulations and require no additional building work or changes to the entrance area. If you do need your ramp to comply with Part M or K regulations, however, we can provide a custom solution to do this. Just give us a call.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”Safety” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]Safety is one of the most important features for any ramp. All our modular ramp sections and parts come with a durable anti-slip mesh surface for grip in all weathers plus safety edges to prevent wheels from slipping over the edges. Optional handrails have also been designed to improve safety for both wheelchairs and other users.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”Suitable for all wheelchairs” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]While some solutions are better suited to various wheelchairs than others, all our modular ramp systems are suitable for all wheelchairs and have a high capacity construction of up to 400kg to account for this. Perfect for manual and electric wheelchairs as well as mobility scooters.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”2-year warranty” open=”no” style=”default” icon=”plus” anchor=”” class=””]Finally, because we’re so confident about the quality and safety of our modular wheelchair ramps, we offer a 2-year warranty guarantee.[/su_spoiler][/su_accordion]

The modular wheelchair ramp range

The main permanent wheelchair ramp range is available in either 1100mm or 1500mm widths, so you can get any of the below parts in either of these widths. For modular wheelchair ramps for homes, our narrower 1100mm width is ideal while parts in our wider 1500mm option are more suited for commercial buildings.

You can choose from our selection of pre-designed ramp kits or build your own custom design out of the available parts. You can see the modular ramp parts available below.

[su_tabs vertical=”yes”][su_tab title=”Ramp sections” disabled=”no” anchor=”” url=”” target=”blank” class=””]The basic ramp sections are available in 3 different lengths – 1360mm long, 1900mm long and 2310mm long.

This makes them essential in fitting a ramp to a particularly small or awkward space. Use one platform to create an L shaped 90-degree bend, or use two together to create a U-turn. They can also just provide a convenient resting place for wheelchair users if you need a particularly long ramp system.Platforms help make modular wheelchair ramps perfect for any space no matter how small[/su_tab][/su_tabs]
