Find out which Access Ramps are best suited to you

1 – What type of step is the access ramp needed for?

Steps/Stairs, Wooden Threshold, UPVC Threshold or Vehicle Access?
Is it for a 4 or 3 wheeled Scooter, Powerchair or Wheelchair?
Use Ramp Centre and Flexel Brochures to select a suitable type. For instance vehicle ramps need to fold for storage and you cannot use channel ramps with a 3 wheeled Scooter.

2 – What Gradient is needed?

1:8 (8°) for an assisted wheelchair/mobility scooters etc. This is a good balance between gradient and space use.

1:12 (5°) for a self propelled wheelchair user on temporary access ramp. Minimum required for building regs.

1:15 (4°) a good guide for all permanently fixed access ramps. This is sometimes required for independent access.
