Aerolight-Broadfold Premium Folding Wheelchair Ramp
While ramps may at first appear costly to install or cumbersome to transport, the Aerolight range of ramps have been designed to offer a practical, lightweight approach to increasing access to buildings and public spaces. The Aerolight-Broadfold Premium Folding Wheelchair Ramp is suitable for virtually any wheeled mobility aid, and features rigid handles for easy loading in and out of vehicles.
Ideal for Buildings and Vehicles
The Aerolight-Broadfold Folding Wheelchair Ramp has been designed to support virtually all types of wheelchairs, rollators, and scooters, including two- to six-wheel models. This versatility will be particularly useful for care environments, local businesses, and residential homes where any number of individuals with reduced mobility may be required to access the area while relying on a wheeled mobility aid. As it folds in half, it will also be ideal for assisting individuals into a vehicle and then transporting compactly.
As the special tapered lip shape of the ramp has been designed to fit into narrower doorways, it can be used with a wider range of public and private buildings. It can also facilitate entry from an angle.
Not only has the wheelchair ramp been designed for use in a wide range of places and situations, but it has also been created to provide optimal dependability. With a full-width anti-slip surface, it can enable a sturdy and stable full-width-grip platform that both walking users and individuals with reduced mobility can use to ascend steps or access vehicles.
The Aerolight-Broadfold also offers an impressive strength-to-weight ratio. The maximum weight capacity will depend on the size of ramp used; there are three lengths of ramp available, with the following corresponding weight and capacity:
|Length (foot/cm) ||Capacity (kg/stone) ||Ramp Weight (kg/stone) |
|5' (150cm) ||350kg (55 stone) ||11.8kg (26lb) |
|6' (180cm) ||350kg (55 stone) ||13.1kg (29lb) |
|7' (210cm) ||300kg (47 stone) ||14.4kg (32lb) |
The required ramp length can be selected from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
To enhance safety for individuals, the Aerolight-Broadfold Wheelchair Ramp has been designed to be more user friendly in a wide range of situations. The ramp is lightweight, ranging from 11.8kg to 14.4kg depending on ramp length, which means that it can be manoeuvred with ease into position whenever required.
The ramp also includes a contrasting colour edge strip and a reflective lip feature to improve safety in situations with lower light. This will be particularly important for when individuals with already-reduced mobility are using the ramp, helping to guide them in the right direction while reducing the risk of tripping over the edges of the ramp.
Folding for Transport and Storage
Unlike many other wheelchair ramps, the Aerolight-Broadfold can be folded in half. This clips together for convenient and compact storage, and the handles allow it to be transported around a building or to a new location with ease.
