Patio door ramps

Our client has a property which has been adapted with various access ramps, but the patio door threshold remained a challenge for her electric wheelchair. Whilst there are commercial door threshold ramps available, they have to be set up and removed – perhaps by a carer.  The decking had been installed up to the uPVC sill.

The solution

We created some small steel custom ramps, supported by wedge shaped sections of weatherproofed timber, tailored precisely to the gap the wheelchair needed to bridge, and covered in non-slip waterproof material. Inserts were also made for the aluminium frame of the door to help support the weight of the chair as it crosses over.

The benefit

The doors can now be opened and closed with the ramps permanently fixed in place so our client can go out onto the patio in her powered chair without assistance.
