Although ultimately our ramps all do the same thing, each of them have their own unique features that makes them stand out from the others. We’ll show you our top 3 most popular ramps that customers often ask about.


Telescopic Ramp


The Telescopic Ramps are ideal for wheelchair users requiring the assistance of an attendant, it can extend and shorten in length to suit individual needs and it’s non-slip tread provides greater traction. The underside of the ramp is also covered with a non-slip rubber surface for additional safety and the ramp also features a safety catch lock to secure the ramp and ensure that it stays together when not in use.

Supplied as a pair it can take on a maximum load of 180kg on both ramps making it suitable for both wheelchairs and scooters. It’s lightweight robust construction means that it’s easy to use and transport plus the nylon carrying strap certainly aids in transportation.

The Economy model of the ramp is a much cheaper option compared to the Premium, however the Premium option is made of a higher grade of aluminium frame. Additionally the Economy model has a grip tape attached to the end of the unit, but it will wear over time compared to the Premium which has a textured surface and provides a better friction for the tyres and won’t wear out over time.
