Remember This Formula for Wheelchair Usable Ramps: 1 on 12. That means for every foot of rise up to an entrance, you’ll need a minimum of 12 feet of ramp. A steep ramp can make it impossible and dangerous for someone in a manual wheelchair, not to mention dangerous. If space permits, it’s even better to have 20 feet of ramp for every foot of rise and somewhere between 12 and 20 feet is ideal.
Did You Know…?
Ramps must be at least three feet wide and have handrails on both sides. For every 30 inches of ramp rise, there must be a level rest platform at least five feet long. Additionally, wherever the wheelchair ramp changes direction, a five-by-five foot rest platform must be provided. If there is a drop off on one side of a ramp, some kind of protective curb is necessary.
As you can see, many factors need to be considered when building and designing the ideal wheelchair ramp for your home or building. Mason Bros.
