Frequently Asked Questions
How wide does a wheelchair ramp need to be?
The width of a wheelchair ramp typically depends on the width of the wheelchair or mobility device, as well as the needs of the user. The minimum width of a wheelchair ramp is 36 inches (91.44 cm) between handrails. However, a width of 48 inches (121.92 cm) is recommended for a ramp that is intended for heavy use or for larger mobility devices.
It’s also important to consider the space around the ramp, such as the landing at the top and bottom of the ramp, as well as any turns or switchbacks in the ramp.
The landing areas should be at least as wide as the ramp and at least 60 inches (152.4 cm) long. If the ramp has a turn or switchback, the landing should be at least 60 inches (152.4 cm) by 60 inches (152.4 cm).
You can consult us before buying to ensure that the ramp meets your needs.
How to calculate ramp length for a wheelchair?
To calculate the ramp length for a wheelchair, you need to consider the slope or incline of the ramp, which is usually measured as a ratio of rise over run (vertical distance over horizontal distance).
Here are the steps to calculate the ramp length for a wheelchair:
- Determine the vertical rise or height of the surface you want to access. For example, if the height of the landing is 24 inches, the vertical rise is 24 inches.
- Determine the recommended slope or incline for the ramp. The slope should be no steeper than 1:12 (for every 1 inch of vertical rise, the ramp should be at least 12 inches long), although a slope of 1:16 or less is preferred.
- Divide the vertical rise by the slope to get the minimum ramp length required. For example, if the vertical rise is 24 inches and the recommended slope is 1:12, the minimum ramp length would be 24 x 12 = 288 inches or 24 feet.
- Consider the available space and any other factors that may affect the ramp design, such as the width of the wheelchair or the need for landings or turns.
It is important to note that these are general guidelines and there may be additional factors to consider based on the specific situation. It is recommended to consult Gilani Mobility to ensure that the ramp is safe and appropriate for the intended use.
How much is a wheelchair ramp?
The cost of a wheelchair ramp can vary widely depending on several factors such as the length, width, materials used, and type of ramp. Portable ramps can cost anywhere from around 500 Dhs to 5000 Dhs or more, while permanent ramps can range from around 5000 Dhs to 10000 Dhs or more depending on the complexity of installation.
In addition to the cost of the ramp itself, there may be additional costs associated with installation and any necessary modifications to the location where the ramp will be used, such as building permits, labor costs, and additional materials.
