Wheelchair Ramps for Improved Access to Homes

If you are someone who uses a wheelchair or mobility scooter, then installing a ramp is a necessity. Often, accessing steps outside the home can be a tricky task for wheelchair and mobility scooter users. Ramps resolve this issue and provide easy access over steps, raised thresholds, vehicles and landings for wheelchair or mobility scooter users. A ramp is an inclined flat access way between one level and another.

Ramps are primarily used in homes, institutions and commercial buildings. Top dealers of accessibility equipment offer innovative models of custom wheelchair ramps for your home in a variety of shapes, styles, and sizes that match the specific demands of various residential settings. There are permanent, semi-permanent and portable models that are durable and easy to assemble to suit individual needs. One of the main benefits of portable wheelchair ramps is that they can be carried along and installed anywhere and also removed quickly. Top models of custom wheelchair ramps are integrated with several standard features such as:

· Code-compliant mesh design — allows natural drainage

· No puddles — Rain and melting snow can pass right through

· No rusting, no rotting, no splinters

· Vertical pickets and steps (available)

· Environmentally responsible — 100% recyclable

· Easy installation — installs in hours not days

· New easy step design
