Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools, and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing, or other special needs!
If you’re looking for a way to make your home or building more wheelchair accessible, check out Roll-A-Ramp! Roll-A-Ramp offers a “one-of-a-kind portable ramp for easy and convenient access into homes, buildings, vans, and more.”
Roll-A-Ramp will always be portable and never permanent, so a building permit is not necessary. It simply rolls up like a sleeping bag for convenient storage and portability. Another neat feature is that you can change the length at any time by adding and removing links.
Other features include:
- Measures 8 feet long by 30 inches wide
- Weighs around 46 pounds
- Add length or separate into shorter sections for easier handling
- Holds up to 1,000 pounds
- Snow and rain drain through instead of collecting on the ramp, making it a non-slip surface at all times
- Raised ridges run across each tread providing great traction
- Handrails can be added to one or both sides
