Bighorn Ramps: Attractive Solutions for Residential UseJun 24th, 2014 | ADA Compliance
Not all wheelchair threshold ramps are created equal.
While a commercial building calls for one kind of product, a private residence may call for another. Handicap ramps for residential use should be light, durable, and attractive. Handsome, even. You want your house or apartment to look like a home, not a warehouse in an industrial park.
SafePath’s Bighorn Ramps are available in a variety of attractive finishes, but without compromising longevity and durability. Bighorn Ramps are manufactured using inexpensive recycled malleable polymer, a composite material with the ability to conform to uneven surface substrates over time (unlike aluminum, for example). This creates a lightweight, durable transition ramp that is both affordable and easy to install. The product’s ceramic quartz finish, available in five earth-tone colors, combines visual appeal with superior slip resistance. A gently tapered front edge and molded side-slopes enhance safety and accessibility while complying with disability access codes. Bighorn Ramps modify existing door thresholds up to 1-1/2 inches, and will soon be available for thresholds up to 2-1/2 inches.
