GRP Pedestrian Ramps
Well-placed GRP Pedestrian Ramps will make life a whole lot easier for anyone using wheels – from pushchairs, wheelchairs and mobility scooters to wheeled luggage, tool boxes, trollies or even vehicles.
Adding a ramp to improve pedestrian or even vehicular access into and around buildings, display platforms or even other vehicles can be done as a temporary or a permanent solution. Whether it’s constructing a ramp from scratch or improving an existing one with anti-slip flooring or handrails, Step on Safety has the solution you need.
- Low maintenance
Most of the GRP Pedestrian Ramps we build are designed for permanent access to a building or plant room. They can be designed using solid-top open mesh grating which is smoother for wheeled traffic or using one of our open mesh gratings to prevent water from pooling on the surface. The structure is built using GRP Profiles while GRP handrail with kickplate prevents items (or people) from falling over the side.
Temporary Access Ramps
It’s not unusual for building sites to require temporary access ramps to navigate curbs, pipework and slopes that will ultimately be resolved using a traditional paved option. GRP is far lighter than steel equivalents so can be moved to where it’s needed. All our fabrications are constructed to provide a Safe Working Load of 5 kN/m2 but we can increase that for vehicular access.
Mobile Pedestrian Ramps
If you need to be able to place a ramp quickly to facilitate access for wheelchair or pushchair users, we can design a ramp that can be carried to where it’s needed and removed after use.
