The length of a ramp has to factor in the height change from the ground to the highest point, like a porch or stoop. The bigger the change in height, the longer the ramp will have to be. This allows the incline of the ramp to be shallow enough that it’s easy to propel a wheelchair or push a walker as the person ascends. If it’s too short, the ramp has a sharper incline that can be tough to get up and down.
Don’t worry, though—we’ve made calculating your entry ramp length easy! The EZ-ACCESS Incline Calculator helps you figure out how long the ramp will need to be. Simply plug in the rise (height from lowest to highest point), select the ratio you want the slope to be (including pre-set ratios for ADA requirements), and the calculator will tell you how long the ramp should be (this is known as the Run Length). The calculator will guide you toward the products that meet your needs!
