There's much to see and learn here. So, take your time, look around, and see that we can find about building wooden ramps for individuals. If you know something that should be included please drop us a line.
Interaction with the person needing the ramp, caregivers, funders & referring agencies is critical. This all needs to be developed in a plan to insure a good build.
Documentation comes in handy when the build is being done and when showing funders that their money was spend wisely and as they wanted it used.
Modular construction helps the actual build on site go a lot faster. Plus they can be build in temperature/weather controlled areas.
Modifying the existing structure and connecting to it lays the foundation for the total ramp.
Landings are required when exiting the structure and at different places in the ramp.
See modules section also.
The ramp slope and surface are critical for safety and ease of use.
Connecting to the ground whether dirt, concrete or pavers can be tricky.
Handrails and kick rails insure that no one falls off the ramp.
Keeping people safe and secure is a priority. Tools, trips, falls, ladders, biting dogs and other things can pose issues during the build.
