Building a permanent wooden or concrete wheelchair access ramp for a home or business can be costly and time-consuming, and you may not end up with a structure that complies with the current ADA guidelines for handicap ramp access. For the most efficient, affordable, and long-lasting solution to bring a home or business up to code, DiscountRamps.com proudly offers a wide selection of ADA-compliant aluminum modular ramps. Take a look at this handy comparison to see the many ways in which our modular wheelchair ramps are superior to treated wooden ramps.
Constructed out of lightweight, rust- and corrosion-proof aluminum, our access ramps for wheelchairs can be assembled in no time using basic hand tools – and there’s no waiting for concrete to dry! Our modular wheelchair ramp systems consist of ramps, stairs, and platform sections (sold separately) featuring built-in skid-resistant surfaces for superior traction that will not wear out over time. Add handrails to any ramp, stair, or platform sections for additional safety and stability. Thanks to their free-standing, modular design, these handicapped ramp systems make great permanent or temporary structures that can be moved or reconfigured easily to meet any changing needs.
