APPEARANCE: The PVI modular wheelchair ramp with standard handrails has a clean uncluttered appearance that will fit in with most surroundings. Handrails are powder coated white.
LOW MAINTENANCE: The all aluminum design has a lifetime durability in all kinds of climates without periodic painting or renewal of preservatives. The aluminum alloys used are resistant to salt corrosion. The modular ramp system may even be used in coastal areas and cold climates that use deicers.
PERMANENT BUT MOVABLE: The PVI modular ramp serves the purpose as well or better than a permanent concrete ramp, but can still go along with the user if they move, or can be removed and resold when no longer needed. This ramp system is designed to be freestanding and totally independent of the existing structure. In many areas this simplifies compliance with local codes and in many areas eliminates permit requirements.
FLEXIBLE MODULAR COMPONENTS: If or when the ramp is moved or resold, it is easy to add to, subtract from, or reconfigure the modular components at the new location. This feature makes the system attractive to lease/rental opportunities that may be available with insurance companies serving rehabilitation needs.
QUICK, EASY ASSEMBLY AND INSTALLATION: The modular components of the PVI ramp are designed to be quickly and easily assembled with simple hand tools, and set in place without the need for construction equipment. A van, pickup, or small trailer is all that is needed to transport the ramp components (or the shop assembled ramp) to the site.
QUICK AND ECONOMICAL SHIPPING: The modular components are stocked and warehoused, so an order can be filled and shipped on short notice. The lightweight aluminum design and plant location make it economical to ship to any part of the country. Shipping cartons can be handled with ease.
Warning and Usage Guidelines
RAMP & LANDING ASSEMBLY: Complete, detailed assembly instructions are included with each ramp. Assembly time for ramps is approximately one man hour per 16 feet of ramp length. Assembly time for landings is approximately 1/2 man hour. Ramps can be assembled in subassemblies for easy transport to the job site. Site preparation, transport time, and anchoring time is not included.
FOOTINGS AND ANCHORING: The PVI modular ramps are designed to be freestanding, independent structures that do not have to be permanently attached to the building it serves. Each supporting leg is independently adjustable, so any settling or heaving of the supporting surface can be adjusted quickly and easily with a single 1/2" wrench. The ramps are also designed to be disassembled, moved, and reassembled at a new site in a new configuration and length. Platforms must have a minimum of one leg anchored on each of the two opposite sides. Each freestanding ramp must be anchored at the upper and lower end. Secure anchoring for the first pair of posts at the bottom is especially important because this adds necessary strength to the lower end of the handrails. Anchoring may consist of lag screws or bolts into wooden surfaces, or anchor bolts drilled into existing concrete, and/or pre-cast pads or poured in place.
NOTE: ADA compliance is usually optional (guideline only) for ramps to private homes.
SLOPES: The ADA recommended slope of 1:12 is preferred when possible. However, when space is limited or other considerations require a steeper ramp, the PVI modular ramp system will accommodate slopes up to 2:12. Any slope selected must consider the capabilities and safety of the users and their equipment.
HANDRAILS: ADA requires handrails on any ramp with a rise of 6" or more. The PVI modular ramp system is available with or without handrails, however, we recommend handrails on all but the shortest ramps unless other provisions are made for the safety and assistance of the user. Some codes mandate handrail spacing, and or vertical slats.
Overall ramp width on the standard 36" wide ramp is 40.5" to the outside of the handrails, and 44 1/2" to the outside of the standard legs.
Overall length of individual ramp segments are as follows: 4', 5', 6', 7', and 8'. These segments are used in combinations to make lengths from 9' and longer in increments of 1'.

Both of my elderly in-laws came to live with us -- one has dementia and was at the time in a wheelchair and the other is a recent leg amputee and confined to a wheelchair. I built a deck, leveled to the back door, and needed a ramp for easy access in and out of the house. The PVI modular ramp was the perfect fit to meet my need. I only required a minimum of 12 feet so three 4 foot sections with the appropriate matching hardware made it simple to give me a finished setup. Each 4 foot section came in a separate carton and it is best to keep these cartons as a unit and assemble them as a unit in order to maintain clarity of your assembly process. The instructions are not the best, however, the ramp is fairly easy to put together. One person can do it alone, but a second person would make it much easier. I can easily move or remove it and you would never know I had a ramp in place. Great product and great assistance in the purchase.

Purchased ramp based on online research.. Ramp assembly is fairly simple, but the instructions in the individual boxes are a little confusing.

We were concerned with handicap access for our office that is a converted house with a basement. We went through several wooden ramps that needed a lot of maintenance and we needed a better solution . We were concerned with the cost but the PVI is to quality and exceeded our expectations in every way. The modules were easy to order and assemble, provided perfect wheelchair and handicap access, complied with ADA, and looks as good as new after many hard, snowy winters, without any maintenance.
