When evaluating your home for wheelchair access via a ramp, there are many factors to consider, such as the location for installation and type of material. There are many types of ramps available and for each individual's needs and situation, the best solution is going to vary. In this post, we'll compare aluminum and wood ramps and briefly review the best locations for the installation of a ramp.

Aluminum Ramps

Increasingly, metal ramps are gaining wide acceptance as an alternative to wood. The two types of metal ramps – aluminum and steel share many attributes and will be discussed together.  The differences between the two types will be highlighted as applicable.

Advantages of Aluminum

  1. Aluminum ramps are typically considered temporary and do not generally require permits. As such they, are installed in place over existing porches, steps sidewalks and yards.
  2. Aluminum ramps will have integrated feet that rest on the ground. In the case of soft surfaces, concrete patio blocks or bricks are set underneath the pads to better distribute the load.
  3. In areas where wind is a factor, aluminum ramps can be tied down with ground augers to resist movement
  4. Offer excellent traction and water /snow shedding. Metal ramps are not prone to ice buildup and can better tolerate use of some types of snow melt (especially aluminum)
  5. Aluminum ramps, due to their modularity and lack of a permit requirement, lend themselves to short term rental use rather than purchase
  6. Metal ramps (especially aluminum) are very low maintenance
  7. Up to 1,000 lbs. weight capacity
  8. Metal ramps can be disassembled and taken with you or sold when you move

Disadvantages of Aluminum and/or Steel

  1. Come in standard sizes and may be difficult to customize to fit specific site requirements
  2. Painted steel ramps will eventually rust and will require scraping and painting to prolong life
  3. Aluminum ramps have a silvery finish that some find objectionable and are difficult / expensive to paint
  4. Metal ramps have two basic tread designs: open mesh or raised rib solid. The open mesh design will allow the growth of grass / weeds if placed over existing yards
  5. In some neighborhoods, aluminum or steel ramps are a target of theft
  6. Metal ramps may be more expensive than wood,Aluminum Wheelchair with aluminum generally costing more than steel
