Fixed Ramp - June 2012

A client required a ramp to enable access to the first floor of a new build.

A ramp was designed (using a similar structure to our mobile Deluxe type 6 yardramp), and installed on the customers site.

A Solid floor with an antislip grit finish was used. This antislip is very hard wearing and is also used on ship decks and bridges.

Handrails were fitted both sides to ensure safe access for pedestrians.

The ramp specifications were;

Capacity: 6000Kg
Length: 12m to give a 1:15 gradient
Width: 2.8m
Height from ground floor: 3m


The surrounding area was infilled and covered with concrete/tarmac following the installation

The support legs were made in sections to allow them to fit inbetween the air conditioning units.


The ramp was delivered and installed using a hiab vehicle to allow the ramp to be positioned using a crane whilst allowing for the tight space restrictions.

The ramp frame and support legs were manufactured using large I-Beams and Columns for maximum strength
