Ramps are used to safely go up steps into or inside of your home when a person has a need of assistance with mobility, and can provide easy access to your home when you have problems navigating stairs, or use a wheelchair or power chair.
Forever Home in Avon offers a variety of products to help you stay independent at home by making those steps and stairs safer.
Ramps for home access
Ramps are an important part of a home accessibility plan. They provide an economical and easy way to make it easier to get into and around your home. They are important tools for older adults aging in place or people who are modifying their home for accessibility.
Many different types are available, which can help you solve specific problems you have with access in your home. They can be used to traverse steps, steep or uneven grades, easily navigate transitions and more.
They can be temporary or they can be installed as permanent fixtures of your home. They also can be rented or purchased outright.
Here are some of the most common types we specify for our clients:
Folding ramps (which are also known as portable wheelchair ramps or scooter ramps) are available in a variety of lengths. They can safely be used on thresholds, small staircases or short steps up to a porch. The ramps offered by Forever Home are designed to be easier to store, safe and affordable.
Modular aluminum ramps are perfect to help you improve the accessibility of your home. They can be custom fit for nearly any home, and are able to be installed and configured relatively quickly by our team.
The residential modular aluminum ramps offered by Forever Home can create just the type of access you need, whether it be for a wheelchair, power chair or other mobility device. They can be used on nearly any residential grade, are ADA compliant and can be fully customized for your home.
Some features of the aluminum include a modular design, adjustable, durable construction, stainless steel hardware, slip-resistant surfaces and seamless connections. In most jurisdictions these aluminum ramps do not require permits or inspections, since they are not attached to your home and require no concrete footings.
Forever Home offers several models for thresholds, which provide excellent accessibility for entrances into your home. These are highly durable, engineered for daily use and provide a greater level of safety for your wheelchair, power chair or other mobility device.
The slip-resistant surface will provide you with easier access and increased safety. So, you can feel confident getting in and out of your home.
Threshold ramps a created specifically for use at doorways or thresholds up to 4″ in height and provide a smooth transition. They can be used inside or outside.
Although aluminum is superior for durability and more easily configured, there may be times when a wooden ramp is needed or preferred.
Our accessibility team at Forever Home has years of experience designing and building them from wood for home access with wheelchairs and power chairs. We can accommodate nearly any home for the access you need.
