Buying Guide

Inside our Exclusive Buyers Guide dedicated to Wheelchair Ramps & Lifts we unveil the main considerations when choosing wheelchair ramps from every angle. Our guide covers general information including details on why a 12” length of ramp is needed for a rise of 2” and why this would be a minimum and how the lengths of wheelchair ramps can limit their mobility. We will guide you through how manufacturers have developed folding ramps made of lightweight materials, such as aluminum ramps, and just why these ramps when folded are able to be stored in a car’s trunk or in the back of a van and of course which one is best for your needs. We cover how wheelchair ramps and lift can be used for multiple purposes such as crossing a curb, going up several steps or accessing a van. We also offer insightful guides into why they should have a high level of craftsmanship, use high quality materials and have non-slip surfaces suitable for their purpose. Our essential guide focuses on how elderly persons with middle-aged caregivers will find van ramp may not be appropriate as it could be to physically demanding and unsafe when a mechanical lift would be the answer to make a vehicle or steps wheelchair accessible.
