Are Ramps Suitable For Trolleys?

Are Ramps Suitable For Trolleys?

Published on Thursday 25th November 2021

Different ramps may support a varied maximum trolley load. The Rapid Ramp system has a tested loading capacity of 1,000kg. Therefore, if your trolley and its contents do not exceed this weight limit, it will be safe to use.

Different ramps may support a varied maximum trolley load. The Rapid Ramp system has a tested loading capacity of 1,000kg. Therefore, if your trolley and its contents do not exceed this weight limit, it will be safe to use.

Our modular ramps are designed to support high traffic volumes. The types of traffic that can use our ramps includes public footfall, wheelchairs, trolleys, prams, mobility scooters, hospital beds, and heavy medical equipment.

Ramp Widths

Platforms are available in different widths. A wider platform can accommodate footfall travelling in two directions and provide turning space for transportation beds and electrically operated wheelchairs/scooters.

Please note that a compliant ramp for public buildings must achieve a minimum width of 1500mm, and a 1:15 gradient (3.7 degrees).

Dwelling ramps that need to be compliant with building regulations require a minimum ramp width of 900mm.

Platform Widths Available:

  • 900mm – the recommended width for dwellings under Document M, Section 6 of the Building Regulations.
  • 1000mm – our standard modular wheelchair ramp for dwellings.
  • 1200mm – our slightly wider modular ramp.
  • 1500mm – the recommended width for modular ramps for public buildings.

Any of the plafrom widths can be secured together to create almost any width.
