Wheelchair Ramp Slope for ADA Compliance
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) outlines a variety of standards for accessibility for individuals with disabilities. These standards apply to public spaces including, but not limited to, workplaces, public transportation, government buildings, schools, and more. For example, if there is a rise of more than .5", a ramp that can accommodate a wheelchair or other mobility device is required. For new construction, wheelchair ramp length is determined by: for every 1" rise, the ramp must be a minimum of 12" long (a ratio of 1:12). For older, established buildings with limited space, the ratio can be as low as 1:8. Learn more about ADA specifications for wheelchair ramps.
