Simple guide to choosing a Threshold Ramp
These Threshold ramps may be necessary in numerous instances. Steps or slight bumps in a doorway may stop someone in a wheelchair or scooter from moving through that doorway. Threshold ramps are slight wedges placed next to or through a threshold. For example, if you have a doorway that has a bottom edge that is not flat; someone in a wheelchair may be unable to easily pass over that threshold to move between the rooms.
The ramp provides a smooth transom over the obstacle.
- Select easy to install ramps. Solid rubber ramps that simply sit in place are fine, assuming they will actually stay in place when the wheelchair rolls over them.
- Look for a ramp offering a slip free surface. Some offer non-skid treads. For outdoor ramps, do look for something that will allow water to penetrate it, rather than sit on the surface.
- Select either a permanent or a temporary option, as it fits your needs. While some are interchangeable, keep in mind that there are several types of threshold ramps on the market, including rubber ramps (Can be laid in place or permanently fixed with adhesive) , freestanding ramps, raised button ramps, bariatric ramps and aluminum ramps ( may require a pin to hold them in place) .
- Durability and functionality are key considerations Consider a unit with wings or tapered sides if turning is required while entering the doorway opening. Usually located at entrance of a building with a rise less than 56mm
