What are portable platforms for wheelchair ramps?
Our portable platforms can be used in conjunction with most of our ramps to create an 'L' shape ramp layout. They are ideal in situations where someone, for example requires a 10ft ramp but does not have the space for a 10ft ramp, for example due to a road or wall. Instead, the platform allows you to have, for example a 5ft ramp go from the door to the platform. The user can then use the platform as a turning space. The wheelchair user would then have a further ramp to go from the platform to ground level. Our portable platforms can be seen here.
What are wheelchair joining supports used for?
Joining supports are used to connect 2 wheelchair ramps together to create one long ramp. Many find them beneficial as it reduces the weight of the ramp, for example instead of having one 8ft ramp they purchase 2 x 4ft ramps and a joining support. The joining support can be adjusted to your required height.

What if I require a longer wheelchair ramp at a later date, do I need to buy a full new ramp?
The Roll-a-Ramp can be built to any length so, if you opt to purchase a roll-a-ramp you can buy additional lengths at a later date to simply clip onto the exsisting ramp to create your new desired length. In the same way you can also remove part of the ramp to reduce the length of the ramp.
