What are the dimensions of ADA Ramps?

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Apr 10, 2019 11:00:00 AM
An ADA Ramp gives disabled persons access to all events with our portable ramps. It's a great and necessary feature. They are ADA-approved which means you won’t have to worry about compliance issues.

You're probably wondering what the dimensions of ADA ramps are available for the size of your stage. Design layout is also another factor that some organizations have not considered before. Participants feeling comfortable and safe is your first concern, with proper stage setup as your close second. To help out, we have our ADA ramp below with information to help break down the dimensions and layouts.
