Ramps

STEP 1. Locate the ramp shoe where it belongs.  Drill and countersink two 1/4-inch diameter holes every 24 inches equally spaced starting 6 inches from the end of the ramp shoe.  A two-piece shoe is to be riveted together as shown in section A-A Figure 6.

After drilling and countersinking the ramp shoe, recheck its location, and use a hammer drill with a ¼ inch masonry bit to drill 2 ½-inch-deep holes into the concrete. Place ¼-inch x 2-inch-long flat-head drive rivets in the holes and drive them flush with the surface of the ramp shoe.

STEP 2. Cut and install all access floor panels adjacent to the ramp well.

STEP 3. Install handrail, if applicable.

STEP 4. Install fascia assembly on either side of ramp that butts the access floor.

STEP 5. Place the ramp stringers (recut slope as needed) and the pedestal supports in their appropriate places within the ramp well.  Ramp stringers must be at both sides of the ramp and located on two-foot centers.

STEP 6. Place the 2 X 3/16-inch steel flat bar cross braces on two-foot centers starting from ramp shoe. Secure flat bars to ramp stringers with pedestal adhesive and ¼"-20 flat-head sheet-metal screws, one per intersection of bar and stringer.

STEP 7. Place all full and cut panels on ramp. See Ramp panel sequence plan, figure 6.
