Overcoming Thresholds In A Wheelchair

Overcoming thresholds within the home is a common difficulty for many wheelchair users. Here at The Ramp People we offer an array of ramps which can help you to overcome the threshold, whether it’s a PVC doorway or wooden threshold our team are happy to help.

Up & Over Ramp – For Manual Wheelchairs, Electric Wheelchairs & Scooters

The Adjustable Threshold Ramp with Entry Plate is a perfect solution for manual wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs and scooters. The ramp can be left in place as it has an anodised, anti-slip surface. The entry plate can simply be flipped out of the way when not in use, allowing you to easily close the door. The external ramp is available in lengths between 2ft – 8ft, meaning the ramp is suitable for heights up to 405mm. For the smaller height (generally the internal height), where the entry plate is used, the height can be up to 120mm.

Combination Channel Ramps – For Manual Wheelchairs

The Combination Channel Ramps are a perfect, lightweight solution for bridging thresholds for manual wheelchairs. They are available in lengths up to 10ft. The ramps are telescopic & folding for easy storage. The hinged part of the ramp allows you to easily bridge and overcome the threshold. In addition, the ramps can be used at full length to simply provide a 10ft ramp to allow you to overcome heights up to 50cm/20″.

Rubber Threshold Ramp & Folding Wheelchair Ramp – For Manual & Electric Wheelchairs & Scooters 

If you would prefer 2 ramps, you can simply purchase a Rubber Threshold Ramp for the internal height, available in up to 4″/100mm. The Rubber Threshold Ramps can be cut to your required width with a stanley knife or saw. Normally you would simply leave the rubber ramp in place.

For the external height you can then purchase a folding ramp, suitable for the total vertical height of the steps. If you are unsure of the length you require, use our simple Wheelchair Ramp Length Calculator. 

Adjustable Bridge Ramp – Perfect For Manual & Electric Wheelchairs, and Scooters

Our Folding Fibreglass Threshold Ramp is a perfect, lightweight solution for overcoming thresholds of heights up to 152mm. The legs are adjustable meaning they are suitable even when the height on either side of the doorway are different. Simply adjust the legs to your required height, place over the threshold and start using! They are provided with an anti-slip black grip surface. At 700mm wide, they are perfect to fit within doorways around the home.

Bridge Ramps – For Manual Wheelchairs

The Ramp People offer a range of aluminium bridge ramps, perfect for manual wheelchairs. Due to the design, the height on both sides of the threshold needs to be the same to ensure the bridge ramp rests securely on the ground. The ramps are available in heights up to 4″/100mm. They are all provided with an anti-slip surface. Simply rest over the threshold and start using, no installation is required.

The aluminium bridge ramp with a black grip surface, available for heights up to 75mm, is provided with a support design which in turn protects the threshold while the user is passing over the threshold on the ramp.
