Affordable Portable Ramps


Visitors: 313

Portable ramps are an accessibility solution for people with mobility disorders. The development of wheelchair ramps has made it possible to easily transport disabled persons wherever they wish to go. The portable ramp furnishes a platform that is analogous to a highway or an inclined surface.

Portable ramps made of aluminum or steel provide easy access to any part of the building, stairs and vehicles including vans, trucks, SUVs and others. These ramps are reliable and easy to install. While choosing a wheelchair ramp one should give serious consideration to some factors such as ramp length, ramp width, rise, and weight capacity.

A wide variety of affordable portable ramps are available in the market today, they include:

  • Single Fold Portable Ramps: They are made from lightweight aluminum which is strong and durable. They are easy to handle and possess high weight capacity. These kinds of ramps are also known as suitcase ramps.

  • Multi-Fold Wheelchair Ramps: These can be folded multiple times and are available in a range from 5 up to 12 foot lengths. Multi-fold portable ramps can be carried like a suitcase. These are suited for handling heavy wheelchairs as they are the heaviest portable ramps.

  • Rollup portable Ramps: These are affordable portable ramps that are fastened with side railings so as to make them shorter. These rollup ramps are available in lengths ranging from three to five feet. They are light in weight, stable and strong.

  • Telescoping Ramps or Track Ramps: These length adjustable ramps are made from durable aluminum which will not rust. Track ramps come in pairs and are available in varying lengths. These lightweight ramps provide easy access to stairs, and thresholds.

  • Van Wheelchair ramps: These affordable portable ramps made from sturdy aluminum provide access to van doors. They can handle heavy weights. They are light in weight, have a non-skid surface and can be installed with ease.

    Though there are numerous portable ramps available in varying length and width, it is important to find an adequate ramp that fits your unique needs.
