How It Goes Together

We manufacture our aluminum ramps in prefabricated sections that bolt together, so there is no on-site welding. We make 8′ and 10′ ramp sections as well as 64″ x 64″ and 64″ x 96″ platforms.

Whatever layout is decided upon, we supply handrails and guardrails to attach to the ramp sections and platforms.

Sample Configurations

The ramp sections connect to each other to form a larger ramp, and you can connect any platform to any ramp section. The platforms are identical on all sides, so they can be rotated and configured to be a resting platform, switchback platform, turning platform, walkway platform, or threshold landing platform. There are endless configurations!

It went together well, I am very impressed that your fit and finish was as tight as it is. Thanks again to everyone involved in the project.”

Dimensions & Product Detail

Walking Surfaces (Ramp Sections & Platforms)

  • Our prefab ramp sections are fabricated in 8’ and 10’ lengths, and you can combine them to make any configuration.  Custom lengths can be fabricated as requested.
  • Per ADA ramp requirements, our ramp sections are designed to allow a maximum slope of 1:12 or 1” of rise for every 12” of run.
  • Ramp sections have a curb along the edges so that a 4” diameter sphere cannot pass through between the curb and guardrails.
  • Ramps have a 48” clearance between handrails.
  • Platforms are fabricated in typical 64″ x 64″ or 64″ x 96″ sections.  Larger sizes will be fabricated as required by layout.
  • Platforms have a universal design, which means that any platform can serve as a resting platform, switchback platform, turning platform, walkway platform, or threshold landing platform.
  • Walking surfaces are designed to carry a uniform live load of 100 pounds per square foot and a concentrated vertical load of 300 pounds in an area of one square foot.

Handrails & Guardrails

  • Ramp and platform guardrails are designed to be 42” high measured vertically from the walking surface to the top of the rail.
  • All guardrails will not allow a 4” diameter sphere to pass though in any area.
  • Guardrails and handrails are provided on both sides of all ramp sections.
  • Guardrails are provided on all open sides of each ramp section and platform.
  • Handrails are located on both sides of the ramp sections. Handrails are not required on platforms, so our standard design does not include them.
  • All ramp handrails are designed to be continuous along all ramp runs and turns in ramp direction. Handrails are not interrupted by posts or other obstructions.
  • All ramp handrails are 36” high from the walking surface. Ramp handrails extend 12” past the edge of the ramp.
