Aluminum ramps provide safe temporary and permanent access to site-built and modular buildings. By installing portable ramps, you’ll provide people with a safe and reliable way to access your business, mobile office, modular classroom or job site. They are ideal for people who use wheelchairs, scooters or have mobility problems, and are available to meet every need and budget.

Modular wheelchair ramps are custom-designed and built for superior stability, with continuous handrails that help users move safely up and down the ramp. ADA compliant models require one inch of height for every 12 inches of length, so modular ramps are most suitable for access to higher landings.

Light ramps are ideal for thresholds and small crossovers and are often used for doorway access. Although smaller and lighter than modular versions, light ramps are just as strong and also offer continuous handrails. Portable ramps lift easily and can be quickly moved from one doorway to another. They are the perfect solution when you don’t need permanent ramps.

Building Access Ramps

The PrefabMetalStairs.com team visits manufacturers of access solutions around the country to evaluate what products are available, how they are constructed, maintenance requirements, their cost, and the manufacturer’s ability to design products to meet the most rigorous code requirements. We have found that aluminum offers the best options, and there are several factors that play a role in choosing the best building ramps:

  • Durability and Strength.  Aluminum ramps are strong and more durable than wood ramps, but lighter in weight. They won’t rot, splinter or deteriorate and require virtually no maintenance compared to wood ramps. The fact that aluminum is also non-corrosive will also ensure that your ramp will serve your needs for many years.
  • Versatility. You can configure aluminum ramps to accommodate any entrance. They’re also easy to install and can easily be taken apart, moved and re-configured in a different location whenever you need to move the ramp to a different doorway.
  • Safety.  Constructed with extruded skid-resistant surfaces, code-compliant vertical pickets, and sides that are flush and finished, there are no dangerous nuts, screws or bolts that protrude into the ramp area. The thermal conduction properties of aluminum means that the ramps will always stay cool to the touch, even in the hottest environments.
  • Easy Installation. Installing an aluminum ramp is simple (less than 15 minutes) and even the most complex ramps never take longer than a day to set up. Wood ramps, on the other hand, can take 2 or more days to install. Although portable ramps may not require a building permit, it’s important to consult your local municipality before installation.
