A FLEXIBLE RAMP DESIGN WITH SPACE FOR PARKING
Ramped access to a dwelling.
This adaption was funded with a disabled facilities grant (DFG).
Due to the lack of on-street parking, the occupational therapist requested a design that would allow space for a car on the drive.
Our in-house designer was able to accommodate this request, as shown in the 3D CAD drawing.
Lidar scanning technology was used during the site surveying process. The machine scanned and virtually mapped out the whole area, including the building and varied terrain levels.
Our designer then plotted a 3D visual of the ramp on top of the lidar model. This technology enables us to continue to carry out site surveys efficiently and within a minimal time frame.
The ramp was installed within a few hours and included a 1:12 gradient.
This is the minimum gradient expected for dwelling ramps to achieve under Document M and K of the Building Regulations.
- Mesh Platform - the self-draining mesh allows water to pass through rather than collect on the surface.
- Trombone Ends - these are added to the ends of a Rapid Ramp to prevent clothes catching.
- Standard Handrail - this handrail system ensures users always have support to hold onto.
- Powder coated Finish – rails are coated with thermosetting powder to provide a non-conductive, non-slip and scratch resistant surface.
- Telescopic Legs - these can be adjusted to accommodate different threshold heights.
EXTRA FEATURE INCLUDED:
- Step & Gate Unit - access for able-bodied users.
- Yellow Tread Strips On Step unit - this is a safety feature designed to help those with impaired vision identify the nose of the step.
