Aluminium threshold ramps consist of an extruded aluminium profile with anodized surface finish. The purpose of access ramps and threshold ramps is to facilitate a smooth transition through doorways for people using wheel chairs or where trolleys get used. Furthermore these access ramps present a cost effective method to providing wheelchair access through doorways. In addition a ramp height of 19mm high suits most doorways. In the mean time, each ramp comes with one roll of anti slip grit tape to suit the 3 grooves.Once the ramp is securely in place peel and stick tape is easy to apply. safety and fall prevention.
Not all aluminium ramps are equal. For instance, some ramps have three grooves as illustrated below for the purpose of applying anti slip tape. In brief, our design allows for the anti slip tape due to popular demand from our customers.
Consequently, It is quite understandable to have an anti slip feature for these ramps especially when wet. Moreover, builders often provide architrave grab rails. for additional safety for ambulant traffic through doorways that have ramps fitted. As seen below, we provide lengths of 1.5meters long because most doorways require at least 1.2meter ramp provision and so builders can cut these to size on site.
In addition to that, the 1500mm lengths come with free anti slip grit tape for optional insertion into the provided tape grooves as indicated on the illustrated drawing.
To summarize the TR12.5 Ramps come in 2000mm lengths only.
Aluminium Threshold Ramps with anti-slip provision for additional safety.
Each wheelchair ramp comes with free water resistant anti-slip adhesive tape, which is great when negotiating doorways by wheelchair.
The most common rubber ramps although are heavy, are designed to be movable for cleaning, their weight helps keep them in position.
Normally rubber ramps have a higher profile than their aluminium counterparts do.
It remains easy to move rubber ramps from place to place as required. This feature makes these handy ramps a popular option for most doorways. Aluminium ramps have a much lower profile and builders fix these into position so they do not slip.
Builders cut threshold ramps to size on site to ensure the required fit.
Australian Standards apply to public buildings. Therefore, it is not compulsory to apply the standard for private dwellings. However, builders use the recommendations as a guide to ensure the safest and most effective ramp access. The gradient recommended is 1:8 with a maximum surface length of 280mm. For ramps located at the entrance of a doorway, ensure that the rise is within 35mm.
