Ramps

Reduced mobility can cause problems which can be helped by use of a ramp. The correct ramp can help in a variety of situations:

  • a person who has problems with their walking may find it difficult to get up steps. A ramp with a gentle gradient may make it easier to negotiate the climb.
  • a wheelchair or scooter will be blocked by all but the lowest step – the right ramp can solve the problem.
  • ramps can be used to move equipment to a raised level. A good example would be the use of ramps to help get a scooter into a car boot.

However, choosing the correct ramp is not a simple matter – like buying a pair of shoes, you have to buy one that fits! Our expert advisors will be able to make an assessment of your needs, if necessary, with a home visit. In general, they will need to find out the following information:

  1. What will the ramp be used for?
  2. How steep will the gradient be? A gentler slope will be easier to use but will require a longer ramp, which may be more difficult to handle
  3. Length of ramp? This will be a function of the height and the gradient.

We sell a variety of high-quality British-made ramps supplied by our partner company Enable Access, which may be fixed or transportable and made of different materials according to use. Examples of key ramps include:

Aerolight - Xtra (Lightweight Folding Portable ‘Suitcase’ Ramp)

Very easy to carry and use, it folds and clips together for convenient storage.  Full-width anti-slip surface provides excellent grip.

Aerolight - Lifestyle (Lightweight Multi-folding Ramp)

This full-width scooter ramp splits into two halves which each fold, making it easy to store and is very light to carry. At the same time, it’s strong enough to take a loaded scooter.

Aerolight - Up&Over Kit

This combines the Aerolight®-Xtra with the Doorline-Multi (DM5), to provide a seamless transition right over most threshold types and heights. Portable and easy to store.

Doorline-Multi (Threshold Ramp)

The innovative Doorline™-Multi can solve PVC door threshold problems. It rests securely on the threshold whilst spreading the weight to provide full access from outside to inside the property. It is available in two sizes.
