Types of Portable Aluminum Wheelchair Ramps

There are several types of portable aluminum wheelchair ramps available to suit varying accessibility requirements, including:

Modular Wheelchair Ramps

Modular wheelchair ramps are a practical solution that enables individuals to overcome mobility obstacles by allowing safe and convenient access to otherwise challenging-to-reach places. Modular ramps are more permanent than portable ramps and can be used for longer or higher distances, as they are pre-fabricated and installed on-site.

Advantages of Modular Wheelchair Ramps

There are many advantages when it comes to choosing a modular wheelchair ramp, including:

  • No permit required
  • Indoor or outdoor solution
  • Different configurations, including L-shape, straight, and more
  • Solid or mesh design options
  • Integrated feet that remain grounded with supportive options for softer surfaces
  • Enhanced traction and moisture-shedding abilities
  • 1,000lbs weight capacity
  • Low-maintenance
  • Can be conveniently disassembled

Disadvantages of Modular Wheelchair Ramps

Although there are a wealth of advantages, there are several downsides to Modular wheelchair ramps, including:

  • Standard sizing and limited customization options
  • They may require scraping and repainting to extend their usage
  • Silver finishing that may not be appealing and is difficult to paint
  • Higher cost than wood or steel ramps

Threshold Wheelchair Ramps

Threshold ramps are smaller ramps traditionally used for raised doorway thresholds and sliding glass doors with sizes of up to 6 inches in height to deter hazards and increase accessibility. Threshold ramps can be used inside and outside the home to reduce tripping hazards and enable smooth transitions.

What to Consider When Choosing a Wheelchair Ramp

When choosing between a modular or portable aluminum wheelchair ramp, there are factors to consider, including:

  • Is it for a full-time resident or an occasional guest?
  • Size and weight requirements
  • Does the ramp user have a caregiver to help them?
  • Rant slope requirements according to ADA guidelines to avoid safety hazards
