The Telescopic Channel Ramps come in 6′ lengths and are made from lightweight aluminum. Despite weighing just 30 lbs, they can support up to 600 lbs. These ramps are easy to set up, with a permanent textured, non-skid surface to ensure user safety. They’re ideal for both wheelchairs and four-wheeled scooters but are not compatible with three-wheeled scooters.
Ramp Length Calculator:
To ensure the correct ramp length, consider the following:
Rise (in inches): Vertical difference between the lower and upper levels.
Minimum Required Permanent Ramp Length (1:12 slope): Suitable for wheelchairs, scooters, and walkers.
Minimum Occupied Portable Ramp Length (2:12 slope): When the user is sitting in the mobility device.
Minimum Unoccupied Portable Ramp Length (3:12 slope): When the mobility device is empty.
Wheelchair Ramp Slope: Permanent ramps should have at least 1′ of length for every 1″ of rise. For portable ramps, a 1′ length for every 2″ of rise is recommended.
Type of Equipment: Always check manufacturer guidelines on the maximum incline that can be traversed.
User Presence: The above recommendations apply when a user is in the mobility device.
Setup and Usage:
Slip Prevention: Secure the ramp to avoid slippage, especially in icy or slippery conditions.
Anchoring: Use provided pins to secure the ramp in place.
Use the ramp with a qualified helper.
Always use a lap belt for added safety.
Check the mobility device’s owner’s manual for acceptable inclines.
Maintenance and Safety:
Regular inspections are essential. If any wear, looseness, or damage is found, stop using the ramp and contact your dealer.
Use caution in wet or icy conditions.
Keep the ramp clean and only use it for its intended purpose.
