Durable Metal Wheelchair Ramps
Composed of Aluminum or Steel, metal ramps have many advantages including cost. Aluminum ramps have a built-in anti-slip surface, do not rust, warp, or get hot, nor require maintenance or painting, and can be moved if needed. The manufacturer insures no rusting up to 3 years on the powder coated steel ramps. Sides are finished and flush, with no hazardous nuts or bolts protruding onto the usable ramp area.
Contact us and we will be glad to send a Mobility Consultant out to evaluate your needs and provide metal or aluminum options to help you choose the ramp that is right for you.

How much ramp do you need?
The calculation below is a good tool to determine how much ramp you may need. Many times the height (rise) needed to get into one’s home is so great a ramp may not be a good choice. Reach out and MobilityWorks will assist you in determining the RIGHT solution for you and your family.
- Measure the height of the stairs you need to go up vertically.
- A good rule of thumb is 1-inch equals 1 foot of ramp (ADA). 42” equal 42 foot of ramp.
Wheelchair Ramps vs. Platform Lifts
A major question we are often asked is "Should I purchase a ramp or a lift?". The decision can be based on a few key differences:
- Ramps are most effective for scooters and power wheelchairs, because they require some effort to navigate. Platform Lifts are useful for all users including manual wheelchairs, because the lift machinery does the work for you.
- Ramps are more effective for lower rises of 6 feet or less, because the ramp needs ample runway to elevate the user (about 1 foot of length per 1 inch of rise). Lifts, on the other hand, can accommodate larger heights of up to 14 feet.
- Ramps are more cost effective in lower height installations, while platform lifts may become more cost effective around 3 feet or more.
If you're unsure which option is right for you, contact a MobilityWorks expert that can help inform your decision.
