Make the best impression on your students
Aluminum ramps, steps, canopies and walkway covers
Having the safest, most durable handicap-accessible aluminum ramps and steps is something that Upside Innovations takes great pride in providing. When you pair these products with our aluminum canopy and walkway systems, you can connect your entire campus and give your students easy, dry access as they move from building to building.
Prefabricated Aluminum Ramps
Safe, compliant access that lasts
Rest assured that all of your students will be able to safely access your buildings with the Upside Aluminum Ramp system in place. ADA code is in place for a reason: to assure safe and equal access to public facilities. Our prefabricated aluminum ramp system is manufactured in a controlled environment that meets all codes. Our ramps are always the correct slope, have compliant handrails and loops at the proper height, and include guardrails that do not allow anything bigger than a 4″ sphere to pass through. This ramp system is safe and compliant when installed and will maintain that compliance throughout its life.
Aluminum – the smart, friendly solution
Upside’s ramp and step system can be recycled or repurposed for years to come. Whether the system will stay at one project, or be moved multiple times, this is an environmentally smart product. The material that goes into our product is made from extrusions containing 25% post-consumer recycled content, and the entire system can be recycled again and again.
When you pair the sustainability of aluminum along with the distinct benefits of aluminum vs. wood, it is amazing that anyone ever stick builds ramps anymore. Others offer steel ramps, but with the ever present danger of rust and the added weight, we are confident that aluminum is the best, most conscientious solution.
Experience the simplicity and ease of working with Upside Innovations by using our professional installers to put your product in place. Our installers are knowledgeable and courteous and go through routine background checks to ensure that we maintain a high level of confidence with every school.
If you have your own maintenance crew, you will find that our system is very simple and intuitive to put together. You can review our ADA Ramp and Step Installation Instructions or call one of our engineers or sales representatives at any time to receive installation guidance.

ADA Compliant Aluminum Step Systems
Compliant to the very last detail
Talk to the experts
When looking for a vendor to provide you with new steps, turn to Upside Innovations. We offer one type of ADA/IBC compliant step riser, and our step riser is actually compliant. We know what states have adopted the new change in code for the lower step rail loops and what states still require the 1 foot flat before looping. Just as important, our steps include the compliant nosing on every step, even the top step up to the platform that code requires.
We not only design and manufacture our products, we also install. Turnkey service is only a phone call or email away.

Aluminum Canopies and Walkway Covers
Connect your campus
Provide the cover that matters
One of the biggest challenges that growing schools face occurs when adding modular classrooms to their campus and trying to provide shelter to teachers and students while they walk from the main school building to the modular units. Upside Innovations’ line of aluminum canopies and walkway covers accomplishes this by keeping your classes out of the elements. These sturdy, attractive systems also help prevent snow and ice build-up on those sidewalks.
All of our systems are engineered to meet local snow and wind loads so they will hold up to the elements for years to come.
