Stepless plain ramps are perfect for dealing with uniform height differences, where low weight is a factor and where the ramp is often used in the same place.
Stepless plain ramps feature the following benefits:
- Soft end caps that prevent the ramp from slipping during use, and serve as shock absorbers during transport
- Softly rounded, folding handles that feel comfortable when lifting and carrying the ramp
- High safety – can support heavy loads
- Integrated non-skid surface that is extremely hard-wearing and provides sure footing in almost all conditions
- Maintenance-free – anodised aluminum profiles for increased stability and strength
- Attractive, functional design
- Takes up little space when not in use
- Stepless plain ramps are available in different lengths to accommodate different needs.
We always recommend using the longest ramp possible – the longer the ramp, the gentler the gradient and the easier the ramp is to negotiate. Generally speaking, we recommend the following ramp lengths in relation to the stated gradients:
User-operated manual wheelchair: maximum gradient 1:7.
Helper-assisted manual wheelchair and electric wheelchair: maximum gradient 1:5.
Recommended ramp lengths are presented in the chart below.
