Which length kit do I choose for my doorway?As you would for any ramp, you first need to know the height which you are going up. You need to measure the internal and external vertical heights (load height). This will allow you to work out the ramp length required. For manual wheelchairs we recommend a 1:6 gradient, for electric wheelchairs a 1:8 gradient. Once you have this height you can then use our simple Ramp Length Calculator to identify the ramp length required. If your unsure feel free to ask our friendly team via email, web chat or over the phone for help!
How does it work?The Adjustable Threshold Ramp with Entry Plate comes in 2 main parts which you simple connect together with several fixings. The first item you need to choose is the entry plate (300mm or 600mm) length (maximum load height 100mm), this is normally designed for the inside height. The second length selection is the longest part which is available in 2ft – 8ft (designed for maximum height of 405mm) simply select the length you need. Normally this ramp will be for the external height, for example to pass over a step.
As seen above, the blue strap allows you to easily move the entry plate out of the way when the ramp is not in use, meaning the door can be shut without you having to move the ramp!
The ramp has an anodised surface, meaning it is suitable to be left outside.
The chequered plate design provides optimal grip.
The ramp is provided with a 400kg capacity, suitable for manual wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs and scooters.
You can adjust the adjustable ramp height to alternative heights and therefore use it in alternative locations, please of course pay attention to the maximum load height.
