Top Five Myths of Ramp Installation

1. A piece of wood is a ramp.

Ramps can be made of wood, but no, a piece of wood is not a ramp. Wood is slippery when wet. After being wet, wood will swell, making the fibers brittle and prone to breaking.

2. A short and steep ramp is just fine.

ADA states that a ramp must have at least one foot of run for every inch of rise. So, if the height from the top step to ground level is 12”, you need 12 feet of ramp. If you use the ramp for a wheelchair or a scooter or just for the ability to avoid steps, a steep ramp is a recipe for disaster. Remember, ramps are designed to assist with fall prevention, not to contribute to the risk.

3. Ramps do not need handrails.

Handrails are not just to keep you from falling off the ramp. They are also needed to help you pull yourself up the ramp. If the rise is 6” is more, you need a handrail.

4. Ramps are permanent.

Modular ramps are not considered permanent and therefore do not require a permit in most jurisdictions. Temporary modular ramps can be great for a family member who is recovering from surgery.  You can also leave the ramp in place for a family member in need.

5. I need to hire a contractor to build a ramp.

You could. But you don’t need to. Modular ramps can be ordered and installed in a matter of days, not weeks or months.

Ramp FAQs

What lengths do EZ-Access ramps come in?

Portable ramps range from 2’-10’. Modular ramps can be configured to any length needed.

What ramp length is best for me?

ADA recommends 1:12 (1 foot of ramp for every 1 inch of rise).  Portable ramps should be used at a degree of incline not to exceed what is recommended by the mobility device.

What sizes do the platforms and ramps come in?

Resting platforms can range from 4’x4’, 4’x5’, 5’x5’, 5’x6’, 6’x6’, and 8’x5’.

What are your ramps made of?

Ramps are made of aluminum which is lightweight, yet durable and will not rust or corrode.

What is the difference between the suitcase ramp and the trifold ramp?

The suitcase ramp folds in half one time and remains the overall length of the ramp when folded. The trifold ramp folds in half and then in half the long way to make the ramp half as long and half as wide when folded.

What is the difference between the “AS” and the “NON-AS”?

The “AS” has an applied surface of high strength traction tread.  The "non-AS" is the standard surface where the slip-resistant surface is extruded into the aluminum.

Does the MOD system have to go straight out or can it turn?

You can configure it to turn with a turning platform, turn back with a turn back platform, angled with a 45-degree turn platform or go straight. You can configure to meet your needs.

How do I stack the rubber threshold ramps with the risers?

The risers will go side by side up next to the threshold. A threshold ramp will go in front, angling up to the risers, and an additional rubber threshold will go on top of the risers.

Are they Medicare compliant?

Ramps are NOT covered by Medicare.
