ARE THOSE NASTY BUMPS THROUGH DOORWAY THRESHOLDS, PATIO DOORS,
SHOWERS OR SMALL STEPS A TRIPPING HAZARD?
OVERCOME EVERYDAY OBSTACLES WITH AN EASY SOLUTION!!
Threshold ramps can be used both interior and exterior of the house – such as the front/back entry doors or
patio doors, thresholds on showers, and for small steps. Threshold ramps provide an inexpensive solution
with long lasting results. The perfect answer!!
We offer 2 types of threshold ramps. Ramp ‘n Roll and Pride Mobility Rubber Threshold ramps.
The Ramp ‘n Roll ramp is made of durable hard plastic and looks like Lego. The pieces are modular in design
and can be customized to fit any space. We particularly like this solution for patio doors where we can cut
the material so that the only gap is where the door passes through.
Ramp ‘n Roll is also perfect for building up the inside of a shower pan. Shower’s have a threshold that presents a challenge for those using a commode. The challenge is to get both the front wheels and the rear wheels over
the edge and into the shower. Getting the rear wheels inside the shower requires both strength and dexterity
and can be hazardous to the person in the commode. Using Ramp ‘n Roll, we are able to build the floor of
the shower level with the threshold and a small ramp on the outside, now creating an easier to use, safer roll-in shower.
The Pride Mobility is a rubber ramp system that is a durable, maintenance free, slip resistant product that can hold up to 850lbs. The material allows for easy installation and incremental ramp height adjustment of up to 3 inches. They can be trimmed or notched for a custom fit to almost any space.
Both ramps systems are typically used where there is a step of 3″ or less and are ADA sloped approved.
We also custom build exterior wood ramps and composite ramps. More and more, we are using composite materials for outdoor decks and platforms. Most of our clients are looking for products that don’t require maintenance and composite meets that need. When it comes to custom wood, our ramps range from pressure treated lumber with expanded metal lathe, to painted or stained versions with decorative handrails.
We can also customize a solution using a combination of products. As in this picture, there is a metal ramp, a platform and ramp n’ roll in the shower – utilizing the space for the best result.
