When trying to decide which ramp is right for your business or home, you don’t have to do it alone! Our helpful tools can make your buying process simpler. Learn how our Incline Calculator, Incline Calculator App and Ramp Selector can ensure you obtain the correct ramp.
Incline Calculator Tool
Our Incline Calculator can help ensure the ramp you’re considering will fit the incline requirements of the installation site. When using the Incline Calculator, you must select your ramp ratio from the following options: 1:6 1:8 1:10 (IRC Acceptable) 1:12 (ADA Standard) The ADA Standard is a great place to start, but you can confirm the ratio standards with your city or local codes. After selecting the ratio, you’ll need to enter the rise. This is the distance from the top step or landing to the ground. After entering these numbers, the Incline Calculator will generate the required ramp length, along with the slope, and grade of the ramp. However, if the rise is greater than 30 inches a platform may be required.
In addition to the Incline Calculator on our website, you can download the Incline Calculator app from the App Store for when you’re on the go. It’s perfect for contractors or home inspections. For more tips on selecting the right ramp for your needs, view our incline chart.
Ramp Selector Tool
Now that you know what length and incline your ramp needs to be, you can better select which EZ-ACCESS products are right for you. If you’re looking for a ramp that allows easier access to your home or an ADA compliant solution for your business, our Ramp Selector can assist in your search. Our ramp selector is built to help you narrow down the selections to meet your specific needs. Because of this, all you need to do is determine what the primary purpose of the ramp will be and the ramp use type. Once you’ve identified these two, the selector recommends the proper products for your needs.
