You can avoid potentially fatal accidents by using something as simple as a portable ramp in your home or building. These have increased traction, an easy to climb slope, and prevent accidents like slipping or falling.

Portable ramps are inclined planes that are used in place of stairs. They assist those in wheelchairs or cart users to access a building easily. There are aluminium ramps that can also be folded, and also specially made wheelchair ramps.

Types of Portable Ramp

Whether you’re caring for a recently injured person, someone who is older in age, or an individual with a disability, there are various types of portable ramps you can use. Here are some that are available:

These are wheelchair ramps made with four sections. They are available in up to 4m in length and can fold into a heavy-duty portable ramp. These are bigger in size and are best for rolling people into large vehicles or a greater number of stairs.

Track ramps are versatile telescoping ramps with an adjustable length. They help you cross thresholds and short steps easily. However, you can also extend them to be used on higher inclines as well. Some models can even extend up to a length of 3m.

This is a lightweight ramp, so you cannot use this for power scooters that have three or six wheels or other extremely heavy equipment.

These are robust but lightweight ramps that you can use for mid-inclines easily. The only drawback of this ramp is that when you fold it, it maintains its full length. This makes it more difficult to transport.

Temporary ramps come in various forms. You can easily install them as semi-permanent access to a business or a home. It is easy to move them from one area to another due to their lightweight and aluminium body.

You can use them at a place where a wheelchair will be staying temporarily. It is also convenient to use it at a place where permanent ramps are not necessary.

How Are The Ramps Used?

You can use portable ramps to move wheelchairs over areas that are elevated. The best thing about them is that you can carry and use them anywhere you want. How you use your portable ramp will depend on the ramp model purchased.

For example, a folding ramp has inbuilt handles that allows you to carry them around easily. 

Portable ramps don’t require any installation. Simply unfold or extend the ramp and set it down at the required location.

Some folding ramps also have side rails that should be placed. This increases the rigidity and safety of the device.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of ramp should I use?

If you are looking for a ramp to use with wheelchairs for the elderly in your home, consider using ramps with high traction. You might choose a single-fold wheelchair ramp in case you need an incline ramp.

On the other hand, you can select a tri-fold ramp that has a longer top area if you plan to use this for vehicles.

 

How steep should my ramp be?

For each 2.5cm of an incline, you should have a ramp that is 30cm. This means a 15cm incline should have a ramp of 182cm.

 

Is it possible to use my portable ramp with a power chair?

Yes. However, consider the weight the ramp is going to carry. Find a ramp that can hold a weight of up to 360kg.
