Different applications will require permanent wheelchair access, including:
  • Schools.
  • Public buildings such as hospitals, theatres, stations, airports and leisure centres.
  • Nursing homes.
  • Homes where the occupant is a lifelong user of a mobility aid, e.g. scooter, wheelchair, powerchair or walker.

Various material can be used to create permanent wheelchair ramps, including metal, concrete, and timber
 
Each material has its own benefits; however, a permanent modular ramp is popular due to its adjustable design, allowing it to suit different areas, buildings, and applications. 
 
Our modular system is bolted together with feet that are fixed into the ground to keep it permanently in place. It can also be easily dismantled when no longer required.
 
The legs are adjustable to suit different threshold heights, and components come in various sizes, lengths, and widths. Plus, platforms can be designed in both straight-through and turning configurations.
