ADA Ramp Compliance

Posted by Morgan McDonnell on May 29, 2020 12:00:00 PM

Our ADA Ramps provide sturdy equipment that is compliant with ADA guidelines. Planning for the future during COVID-19 is sometimes all we can do to stay optimistic. Especially because ADA ramps help the elderly, who are a vulnerable population for COVID-19. Building a new normal involves learning what ADA ramp guidelines are and finding equipment that fit your needs.

BNI ADA Ramps and Stage 2-1

Take a look below at the guidelines:

Express Ramps - ADA Guidelines

The ramps can be between 0-40'' in height. These are the specific increments 0-12’’, 0-16’’, 0-20’’, 0-24’’, 0-28’’, 0-32’', 0-36’’, and 0-40’’.
