What Gradients do wheelchair ramps have?
The gradient of a wheelchair ramp depends on several factors. For public access and commercial scenarios, such as those needed by local authorities and supermarkets, a ramp gradient between 1.15 and 1.20 is most suitable.
With this gradient, all wheelchair users who access libraries, office spaces, shopping centres, and community centres can safely enter. However, if you need a wheelchair ramp for residential use, the gradient you require lowers.
The minimum wheelchair ramp gradient that building regulations must abide by is 1.12. This gradient is most suitable for ramps used to exit and enter homes and personal gardens.
How much do wheelchair ramps usually cost?
If you’re interested in how much a wheelchair ramp usually costs, you must consider a few different elements. First, what material is your wheelchair ramp? Slip-resistant aluminium ramps can be a low-cost, budget-friendly option for wheelchair users.
How much weight do you need your wheelchair ramp to support? Consider the purpose of the wheelchair ramp, who it is for and how much weight it will bear.
For example, those in traditional wheelchairs should not face issues travelling on standard ramps. However, people with specific disabilities may use wheelchairs carrying specialist equipment.
Therefore, they may need a wheelchair ramp made of more expensive, stronger material. A higher-quality wheelchair ramp may then be required, which will increase costs.
