The PVI single fold mobility ramps unfold to a 76cm wide loading platform with edge barriers.
They’re ideal for wheelchairs and 3 & 4 wheel scooters.
Non-slip surfaces allow these ramps to be used in wet weather conditions as well as dry.
Their aluminium construction makes them as light as possible for their size with a 360kg load capacity for lengths under 3m.
Choosing your ramp size
When choosing a portable ramp, it’s always good to speak with your Occupational Therapist first. They can assist you in making a decision.
Your local council may also be able to provide you with helpful information regarding calculating an appropriate ramp length for the obstacles you’re facing.
We recommend the length of your portable ramp to be a minimum of 6 times the rise. This ratio presents an incline of roughly 10 degrees.
How to calculate:
- Measure the RISE of your step or surface
- The minimum RAMP LENGTH = 6 x RISE
For example, let’s say you have 2 steps that have a total rise of 20cm.
The minimal length we would recommend for your portable ramp would be 120cm.
** Handle not included on SFW230.
