Answer: There are many reasons why Roll-A-Ramp® is the premiere choice for portable, van, and home ramps.

a) Versatility. Unlike other products on the market, the Roll-A-Ramp® is much more versatile and can be used in more situations. You can add additional length by simply attaching extra sections. This means you never have the wrong size ramp! It can be changed and reconfigured to meet your exact need.

b) The width you need. Ramps come in the following widths: 12” (sold in pairs), 22″, 26”, 30”, 36” and 48″ wide.

c) Rolls up – easy to use and store. Stores in very little space – no need to wrestle with heavy folding ramps that are hard to handle.

d) Multiple ramps in one: Any Roll-A-Ramp® can be quickly and easily split into different length sections. The sections can be used as a shorter additional ramps.

If using the ramp for wheelchair or scooter access, measure the wheelbase of the chair (inches from outside the left wheel to outside the right wheel). This will determine the right ramp width for your needs.

Since the ramps can be any length, and you can add links if you need to, use the following to determine the weight based on the width of the ramp you need:

  • 48” ramp – 8 pounds per foot
  • 36″ ramp = 7 pounds per foot
  • 30″ ramp = 6 pounds per foot
  • 26″ ramp = 6 pounds per foot
  • 22” ramp = 5 pounds per foot
  • 12″ ramp = 4 pounds per foot

Our ramps are made from aerospace 6061-T6 aluminum. The same material military jets are made of, it is the highest quality aluminum raw material available. It is hardened to the Rockwell Hardness factor of T6 which means it has the hardness of steel. Plus, it is anodized which makes it stronger, last longer, prevents corrosion and makes for clean handling.

Pricing will vary based on configuration of width, length, support stands, handrails, or platform. Please contact us for more details so we can help in your evaluation.

We strive to make sure our customers get the right ramp during the initial purchase, but we also understand that at times our ramps will not be the right solution for everyone. Returns are generally accepted with a 20% restocking fee if the ramp is in re-sellable condition. Shipping costs are not refunded.

No. We are not able make custom widths.

Roll-A-Ramp® is unique because it can be built to any length. Roll-A-Ramp® is flexible in that it can be built to ADA specifications 12:1 (1′ of ramp per 1″ of rise). However, this length is typically not needed in most locations nor is it feasible in most home locations. Ramp length will depend on your situation and your individual need. Because it is a portable ramp, it is not required to comply with ADA guidelines

There are three options:

Approach plate and link: Each ramp comes with a standard approach plate on each end. The approach plate and one link of the ramp should be on the top of the ramp so that the weight of the ramp is secured to the destination surface.

Heavy-duty approach plate: A heavy-duty 6” approach plate may replace the standard upper approach plate, which is included on all ramps. This piece is made of steel instead of aerospace aluminum and is designed to bear weight. If space on the destination surface is limited, this can be a great solution – although it will add about 10 pounds and some additional cost.

Z-Mount brackets: These Z-shaped brackets (also called Seg-Mount brackets) can be attached to the front of the top stair or destination surface. The standard upper approach plate slides into the brackets making the ramp level with the destination surface.

Yes. Approach plates make it possible for wheelchairs, for example, to smoothly get on and off the ramp. All ramps come with a standard approach plate on the top and bottom and both are included in the overall length of the ramp. For example, an 8’ ramp will be comprised of a 6” standard approach plate on the top and and another one on the bottom and 14 links. An 8’ ramp (with two 6” approach plates) will have 7’ of usable ramp.

Ramps that are 10’ and longer need support stands. The stands should be placed at 6-7 foot increments. Ramps of this length without support stands will not have the 1,000 pounds capacity and may feel springy when used.
