What are wheelchair and scooter ramps and steps?

Ramps and steps are mobility aids that enable better access to your home and areas that have existing steps or raised surfaces. Ramps make steps in and around your home accessible for wheelchair and scooter users and our small and half-steps make existing steps easier to reach.

What are the benefits of wheelchair and scooter ramps or a step?

Ramps reduce uncomfortable lifting over steps and into vehicles. They give you the independence to transport yourself around your home, rather than relying on assistance.

All our ramps and steps have anti-slip surfaces to offer added stability during transit and reduce the risk of slips and falls.

Steps and ramps have strong, durable designs so they are suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

What different wheelchair and scooter ramps, or steps, do you offer?

Full width ramps – most of our ramps have a flat, full width design so they are suitable for a range of scooter and wheelchairs.

Channel ramps – channel ramps fit onto steps or raised surfaces with a separate ramp for each wheel. They can be moved closer or further apart to suit different wheelchairs or scooters.

Threshold ramps – door thresholds are often raised and can make it difficult to get from one room to another. Our threshold ramps bridge over the threshold or fit onto one side so you can easily wheel over them.

Folding ramps – many of our ramps can be folded and come with handles, making them easy to transport and ideal for travel. We even offer a roll up ramp that is supplied with its own bag. It is easy to unwrap and has a ridged non-slip surface.

Steps – the step up into your house can often be quite high. We provide multiple steps that are ideal to help reduce the height of a single step and give you more confidence in your footing.

Support handles – we offer a support handle to fit onto steps for added handheld stability.

What should I consider when choosing wheelchair and scooter ramps or a step?

Size and fitting – check the size of your door frames, existing steps and your wheels to ensure you choose a ramp or a step that is suitable for your own home and equipment.

Storage – will you be using the ramp away from home or need to store it? If so, you might consider a lightweight folding ramp so it is easy to transport and pack away.
