The PATHWAY 3G allows for infinite modular ramp and platform configurations, creating safe and seamless access for both standard and unique entryways. Ramp lengths from 2'-8' and platform sizes up to 8'x5' enable you to overcome any access challenge at your home.
SUPERIOR SURFACE OPTIONS
Choose from two surface options - solid and expanded metal - to meet your needs.
PREMIUM HANDRAIL STYLES
These component-based rail options are easy-to-assemble and customize. All styles are made of aluminum and feature a durable finish with a continuous top rail.
DURABLE AND SAFE
The PATHWAY 3G is made of high-strength aluminum which will not deteriorate in the outdoor elements and features slip-resistant surfaces that maintain traction in any weather. Sides are finished and flush with no hazardous nuts or bolts protruding into the usable ramp area.
The PATHWAY 3G is virtually maintenance free, it will not rust or rot and is constructed from an environmentally friendly material.
The ramp system will not impact your home's property value because it does not alter or add to the structure of the residence - no poured footers, no construction - just simple assembly.
QUICK AND EFFICIENT INSTALLATION
The PATHWAY 3G installs quickly, which means minimal disruption for you and your family. Typically, a 24-foot system can be installed, including handrails, in less than an hour.
Step #1: Determine the best access point:
- Make sure that the doorway you want to use is wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair. Also, look at the interior arrangement just inside that door and the path inside the building after entering. Make sure that there is a clear space to approach the door.
- Which Side of the Building is Best?
- Will a ramp facing the street reduce your home's "curb appeal"?
- Will the ramp interfere with other uses of the property?
- Avoid areas under trees that might drop excessive leaves on the walking surface.
- Try to get southern exposure to aid in drying and melting of snow and ice from the walking surface.
Step #2: Measure the rise:
|Rise||Measure the rise from the door threshold or from the landing outside the door to the flat area that the other end of the ramp will rest on. Keep in mind that the ground may slope away from the bottom of the steps. (see diagram)|
|*We start you off with the ADA Standard Ratio of 1:12 (if you would like a different incline please choose "Custom Quote" below for instructions.|
Choose your total rise from the drop-down above*
|*This will automatically add the correct length ramp to your cart (one foot of ramp for every inch of rise).|
|If the measured rise is greater than 30", it might be more cost-effective to consider a Vertical Platform Lift instead of a ramp system.||If the rise is less than 12 inches, or the need for a ramp is temporary, it may be best to use a Portable Ramp.|
Step #3: Choose your handrails:Choose handrail type from the dropdown above if you would like two-line handrails or vertical picket handrails
Step #4: Choose the surface type:Choose surface type from the dropdown above if you would like solid surface or better traction with the expanded metal surface
Step #5: Choose your Layout:
Once you have your rise, handrails, and surface chosen, you can now finalize your custom entry ramp system.
Choose your layout from the three options:
|Straight - This is best if you have room for the entire length of the ramp to project straight out from the entrance. (see diagram)|
|L-Shape - If you don't want the ramp projecting straight out of the entrance, or if your desired landing area is on a different side of the building, you can "wrap" the ramp around a corner. (see diagram)|
|Switch Back - This is best if you want to minimize the total amount of space that the system takes up on your property. (see diagram)|
Step #6: Choose your Platforms:Choose your platforms
|Regular (square)||For straight and L-shaped configurations|
|Switchback (rectangle)||For Switchback configurations|
NOTE: Many configurations require more than one platform and Switchback often requires both Regular and Switchback platforms.
Step #7: Customize your options:Add any other options
|Add Stairs - If you decide to use the primary building entrance for your ramp system, consider the other people that will be using this entrance. Do you want to force them to walk up the ramp? If not, think about providing steps that go directly from ground level to the top of the highest platform of the ramp system. Measure the rise from ground to top of where the ramp will begin to choose the correct stairs.|
|Add a Gate - If you need the ability to keep children or animals from getting to the ramp, consider adding a gate to the entrance.|
Add a Landing Pad - When your ramp lands on grass or another soft surface, the Landing Pad is ideal to avoid the need for a concrete pad.
|Add Threshold Ramps - Threshold ramps are used for the small lip at the door inside and outside. Measure the total rise (usually .5"-2") and select the right size.|
|Add Loop Ends - Your handrails come standard with straight end, choose this option if you would like the looped ends to help with stability.|
|Add a custom Powder Coat finish: When you choose this option we will call you for more details and lead time.|
- Do concrete footers need to be poured?
- Our multi-positional base feet have a large footprint which eliminates the need for concrete pavers or poured footers. They are also offset and rotatable, allowing you to tuck them under a ramp or set them close to a wall.
- Does my modular ramp system have to go straight out or can it turn?
- You can configure the system to be a straight run or it can turn left or right by simply using a turning platform. The ramp system can also incorporate a switchback by using a turn back platform or it can extend at an angle by using a 45-degree angle platform. The system can be configured to meet your exact needs.
- What sizes do the platforms and ramps come in?
- We offer standard resting platforms in the following sizes: 4'x4', 4'x5', 5'x5', 5'x6', 6'x6' and 8'x5'. Ramps are 36” & 48” wide and come in lengths of 2’-8’. Custom sizes are available upon request.
- What do I use for ice and snow removal on ramps, platforms, and steps?
- We suggest using Magnesium Chloride salt substitute.
- Why don't you sell platforms without handrails?
- Safety is important to us and selling platforms with handrails is our standard.
- What kind of tread is used on this ramp system?
- Our platforms consist of a knurled, extruded tread for multi-directional traction, and our ramps feature a raised-rib, extruded tread for ultimate slip-resistance.
- Can I get the black applied surface on this ramp?
- No, it is not available on our modular ramp system. This surface is available on two of our SUITCASE® portable folding ramps.
- How long will the installation take?
- Depending on the configuration, installation time will vary, however, a 24-foot system can typically be assembled with minimal tools in less than 30 minutes.
- Do the steps have to connect to one of your platforms?
- The steps can not only connect to one of our platforms but they can also easily connect to an existing platform or deck because they have 4 independently adjustable legs.
