REQUIREMENT:

A DDA compliant replacement for the existing short and deteriorating plywood ramp with no handrails.

The ramp will be used daily by heavy wheelchairs; therefore, a slip-resistant surface was needed, one that could perform in all-weather conditions. 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

CAD and technical drawings were created by our designer in-house.

These were given to the client with their quotation.

END RESULT:

A straight Rapid Ramp was fitted within a few hours during the school holidays.

Slip-resistant, rubber crumb was also evenly distributed over the mesh surface. 

To ensure a shallow gradient could be achieved, the ramp was designed to be longer than its predecessor and meets the junction between the edge of tarmac and the start of timber decking.

FEATURES INCLUDED:

  • Infill Handrails - this product prevents users from climbing or falling through gaps.
  • Yellow Tread - this is a safety feature designed to help those with impaired vision identify the nose of the ramp.
  • Trombone Ends - these are added to the ends of a Rapid Ramp to prevent clothes catching.
  • Continuous Handrail - this handrail system ensures users always have support to hold onto.

EXTRA FEATURE INCLUDED:

  • Yellow Powdercoated Handrails – yellow is one of the easiest colours to see because of its ability to reflect light.
  •  Safetread Rubber Surface - this is a soft, slip-resistant surface that reduces the impact of falls. The product is made from the same materials used in soft play areas and is ideal for nurseries, schools, and public facilities.
