Ramps

FOR RAMPS:

 

PITCH/LENGTH:

 

The pitch is to be 1:12. That means that for every inch of raised floor height add 12” of ramped surface accessing the floor. EX: If you have a 6” raised floor, you will need a 6’ ramp. If you have an 18” raised floor, you will need an 18’ ramp.

WIDTH:

 

Minimum 36” wide

SURFACE:

 

If the ramp is over 6’ long, it must be a non-skid surface or have adequate slip protection strips installed. Many people have 6’ long carpeted ramps.
