What ramp would I use to load a scooter or a wheelchair into a vehicle?

As long as the ramp will only be used for loading equipment or an empty wheelchair into the boot, you could use a 6ft folding ramp or a 9ft Roll-a-Ramp, depending on how high your car is and how heavy the item to be loaded is.

How do I secure my ramp to a vehicle?

You can purchase accessories for your ramp which allow it to be fixed in place. Tailgate brackets can be bolted to the floor of your vehicle and the ramp ‘slots’ into them to be extra secure. Slide right angle brackets can also be fixed to the floor of your vehicle and the ramp can be bolted on to these to allow a semi-permanent installation.

What gradient should the ramp be?

What gradient should the ramp be?

Some wheelchair users have manual wheelchairs which they prefer to self-propel. In this case a 1:12 gradient ramp is required (4 degrees). If the wheelchair user will be assisted or has an electric-powered wheelchair or scooter, then a 1:8 gradient is fine (7 degrees). If the ramp will be used for industrial use or loading equipment, a 1:6 gradient is sufficient (9 degrees). Of course, the shorter the ramp, the steeper it will be, so a longer ramp is always the safer option.

Does the ramp get slippery when it’s wet?

Does the ramp get slippery when it’s wet?

The ramp has drainage holes to allow water to drain away. The ramp surface is also “ridged” to be non-slip. Of course, you should always take extra care during adverse weather conditions and a full risk assessment should be carried out if the ramp is used in a public place.

How does the ramp stay in place?

How does the ramp stay in place?

The ramp is specially engineered to stay in place under its own weight. As long the ramp you are using is long enough for the height to be covered, and the first foot of ramp (one tread and the approach plate) is placed flat on the top step the resultant force will ensure the ramp stays in place.
