Building Instructions in Video and Word
Our galvanised steel modular ramp systems will be delivered in flat packages and can be assembled by every competent builder or DIY'er. Some parts are quite heavy o we recommend each installation with a minimum of 2 persons.
We have also produced images and a video for easy guidance to get the right measurements around the door.
See for yourself how easy the installation can be.
A quick guide for Fixings, Bolts and all small parts for the installation:
As each system has a various number of bolts, fixings and more small parts, we have photographed all small items in groups and explained below.
1) Foot Parts
1. Adjustable Foot, to be screwed in the telescopic leg in the stanchion
2. Nut, for adjusting and fitting the foot in the leg
3. Foot Plate, to be placed under the adjustable foot. If necessary you need to place paving slabs under the foot plate, to strengthen the foot under the Modular Wheelchair Ramp System.
2) Fixings - 1
1. Shorter Bolts for the Top Bar of the Handrails
2. Longer Bolts for the Lower Bar of the Handrails
3. Washer for all bolts in the image, every bolt needs to be fixed with a washer
4. Nuts, to Fix the 1. and 2. bolts
5. Bolts, to fix the stanchions to the ramp sections, with a Washer and Nuts (image no 3, part no.3).
6. U-Shaped Locking Pin, to fix the handrails to the plastic caps on the stanchions.
3. Fixings - 2
1. Long Bolts to connect the ramp section with the platform
2. Wedge Washer, to connect the sloped ramp section to the straight platform
3. Nuts, for the bolts no. 1
4. Ramp Section Fixings
1. Bolts, to connect the ramp sections with each other
2. Nuts, for the ramp sections connection bolts

5. Handrails Fixings
1. Bolt, to connect the handrails to the stanchions
2. Nut, to fix the bolt
6. Stanchions and Telescopic Leg
1. Stanchions, which contain the telescopic legs to connect the handrails with the ramp sections. The two top holes are the ones to be fitted with the plastic caps (2.), which can be seen below in the bolt circles.
Modular Wheelchair Ramp Systems and the law
These systems are designed to be fast installed and removed. Nothing needs to be bolted down. However, these ramp systems (1500mm width only) are compliant with the German DIN 18040 barrier free building regulations.
