Threshold Ramps – Ensure Easy Building Access for All

Threshold Ramps

Threshold ramps make small steps and doorway thresholds in homes and commercial buildings accessible to wheelchair, scooter, walker, and cane users. The Americans for Disabilities Act (ADA) stipulates that thresholds cannot be higher than ½ inch at accessible doors, including sliding doors. ADA specifies that changes in level along the route that are greater than ½ inch must be ramped with a slope no greater than 1:12. ADA specifications apply to all commercial buildings. Although ramps installed in homes are typically not required to meet these specifications, adherence to these guidelines will ensure user convenience, comfort, and safety.
