What is the difference between the suitcase ramp and the trifold ramp?
The suitcase ramp folds in half one time and remains the overall length of the ramp when folded. The trifold ramp folds in half and then in half the long way to make the ramp half as long and half as wide when folded.
What is the difference between the SUITCASE® Singlefold ramps and the SUITCASE® Trifold® AS ramp?
The SUITCASE Singlefold ramps fold in half one time and remain the overall length of the ramp when folded. The Trifold AS ramp folds in half and then in half the long way to make the ramp half as long and half as wide when folded.
Why do some ramps have the black applied surface, but not others?
This is a preference point for some people. Both surfaces are very durable and slip-resistant.
Can this ramp be separated?
Yes. By removing two bolts, the ramp can be separated into two sections for easy transport or storage.
What are the plates for at the top and bottom of the ramp?
There is a fixed top transition plate for secure placement with holes for attaching to the supporting surface. There are also two independently adjustable ground transition plates that allow for smoother transfers from ramp-to-ground and ground-to-ramp.
Can you connect multiple ramps together?
No. We suggest checking out some of our other ramps if longer lengths are needed. SUITCASE® Trifold® AS and GATEWAY™ 3G ramps are available up to 10’ and PATHWAY® 3G ramps can be connected to achieve whatever length you need.
How do you keep the ramp from moving?
Use the provided clevis pins or screws through pre-drilled holes at the top of each section to secure the ramp to the supporting surface.
Are there handrails available?
No. If you need a portable ramp with handrails, check out our GATEWAY™ 3G Solid Surface Portable Ramp, which has two different handrail style options.
Is there anything that prevents the ramp from swinging open when it is being carried?
Yes, there are hook and loop strips that secure the sections together during transport.
