Assembly 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 .5 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 .5 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.; 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.; LAYOUT CONSIDERATIONS:; Overall ramp width on the standard 36 wide ramp is 40.5 to the outside of the handrails, and 44 .5 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'.
