Come on and Build a Wheelchair Ramp with me!


 
Advice,Blogs
Wheelchair ramps allow people with disabilities gain access to private and public facilities. In most countries, public buildings are required to have wheelchair access. The wheelchair ramps can be portable, permanent, or semi-permanent. Keep in mind that building a permanent ramp will require engineering and carpentry skills. It might also require you to get building permits. On the other hand, you can easily build a portable ramp. So the next question you might be asking is “how to build a wheelchair ramp?”

When you learn how to build a wheelchair ramp, you make your build more accessible to people with disabilities. And the good news is that you can easily construct one as long as you have the materials and tools for the job.

Planning Stage

Before anything else, the first step on how to build a wheelchair ramp is to create a plan. Determine whether the ramp you are going to construct is permanent or temporary. A permanent ramp will require several professional services, as well as getting a building permit for the project. On the other hand, a temporary wheelchair ramp is easier to build.

And if by chance you need to get a building permit, it is recommended that you draw a plan that shows the property line, perimeter of the home, and where the ramp will be constructed. You should indicate the length, width, and height of the ramp, as well as its distance from the street or sidewalk. DYI-WHeel-chair-ramp-construction

A very simple wheelchair ramp…

Building Process

The next step on how to build a wheelchair ramp is the actual building process. It is recommended to use treated lumber only to ensure the safety of the user, as well as the durability of the ramp. You should also consider building the ramp with screws, not nails. The latter can come undone over time, and can become a safety hazard.

Posts are needed in order to keep the wheelchair ramp stable, as well as secure it in place. For permanent ramps, you need to use 4 x 4 woods. They should not be spaced more than eight feet away from each other. The wheelchair ramp must also have some anti-slip surface. For concrete ramps, you can make an anti-slip surface by brushing the surface with a broom while it is still drying. For wooden wheelchair ramps, you can use strips of roofing, a coating of polyurethane mixed with sand, or grit tape.

These are some of the tips on how to build a wheelchair ramp. If you want to learn more about wheelchair ramps and lifts, browse through this website.
