3 people discussing how to build a module.
Hello

Welcome

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.

Planning

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

3 kids writing up the documentation for a ramp project.

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.

Structure connection

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.

Ground connections

Connecting to the ground whether dirt, concrete or pavers can be tricky.

Hand & kick Rails

Handrails and kick rails insure that no one falls off the ramp.

Safety & Security

Keeping people safe and secure is a priority.  Tools, trips, falls, ladders, biting dogs and other things can pose issues during the build.
