Factors to Consider Before Building a Wheelchair Ramp


Generally speaking, a wheelchair ramp intends to make it simpler and safer for those with mobility issues to enter particular areas. Most of the time, accessing these areas requires climbing steps or a flight of stairs. People who need wheelchairs and other mobility aids can easily reach these locations thanks to access ramps.

Several people can take on the job of building a ramp in New Jersey. However, if you desire to build one on your own, allow us here at Mobility Construction, to give you a few tips!

As a premier provider of wheelchair ramp installation in Freehold, New Jersey, here are factors that we suggest you consider before building a wheelchair ramp:

  • The Main User/s:

    The first thing to consider is who will be utilizing it. This includes understanding the design of the mobility device they use because it will have a significant impact on the ramp’s features.

  • The Ramp’s Location:

    Another thing to think about is where you want to put the ramp. Outdoor ramps are typically linked to the main entrance of a house or building. Measure the area surrounding the main entry to see if a straight ramp, a 90-degree ramp, or a switchback ramp may be installed.

  • Ramp Requirements:

    Typically, the characteristics of a wheelchair ramp adhere to the criteria established by certain laws and regulations. You’d want to make sure that what you’re planning to build is compliant with such requirements.
