Ramps for Wheelchair & Scooter Access


Any change in floor or ground level can prevent independent access in a wheelchair or scooter.

Fortunately, there are a range of wheelchair and scooter ramps available to solve this problem wherever it occurs.

What length ramp do you need?


For fixed concrete ramps, Building Regulations would generally suggest a gradient of 1 in 15 (eg: a 5 cm height would require a 75 cm ramp).

However, this is a guideline, and not a legal requirement. If space permits, this is the ideal gradient, but often the height that needs to be bridged is too great to allow such a length, particularly on narrow footpaths etc.

We are happy to discuss your requirements and design a solution that works for you.
