When deciding to build a handicap ramp for oneself or for a loved one, there are many factors to consider, i.e. length, width, slope, etc. but the one factor that can mean the difference between a long-lasting ramp and a ramp that will need to be replaced in a few years, the material from which it is made.
There are many materials a homeowner can choose from such as wood, steel, concrete or aluminum. The aluminum handicap ramps manufactured by National Ramp, after close comparison, are by far the best choice when it comes to safety, availability, warranty, durability and maintenance required.
• Safety: National Ramp’s aluminum ramps are of the safest and highest quality available. The handicap ramps designed and manufactured by National Ramp either meet or exceed ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards. Wooden ramps, even those constructed from treated lumber, can deteriorate in extreme weather conditions. The wood can rot over time, warp or discolor and the boards can become uneven when the nails or screws holding them together actually loosen over time. Wooden ramps will also require that a non-skid walking surface be added to the wood separately. National Ramp builds one of the best rated handicap ramps in the business.
Aluminum is strong and corrosion resistant and will not deteriorate over time. National Ramp’s aluminum handicap ramps are 100 percent maintenance-free and 100 percent built in the USA. The aluminum ramp will not warp, rot or loosen up over time as will wooden ramps and the open mesh walking surface is part of the ramp construction and allows for water and melted snow to pass right through.
Durability and Maintenance: Wooden ramps will only last as long as the wood from which they are built. Even treated lumber can deteriorate over time. Wooden ramps need to be kept painted, stained or sealed with a sealer to keep water out. Anyone that owns a deck knows that wooden decks require a lot of maintenance. Steel ramps also need to be painted periodically and will rust over time.
Aluminum handicap ramps are 100 percent maintenance-free. Aluminum is strong, light weight and corrosion-resistant. Once installed, they can be enjoyed for years and years. If a homeowner wants a painted ramp to match the décor of one’s home, the ramps from National Ramp are available in three colors: silver, forest green and tuxedo black. Aluminum handicap ramps built by National Ramp Corp are warranted for life, steel ramps for 3 years.
