Tips When Choosing a Loading Ramp

Whether you’re transporting personal lawn care equipment or finding ways to improve efficiencies at your delivery business, you need a safe, sturdy and affordable loading solution.  But with so many loading ramps to choose from, how do you determine which one is right for you or your business?  At EZ-ACCESS, we understand the conundrum and can help you with these three simple questions:

What are you planning on loading?

If you are loading machinery such as a lawn mower, you would need to know how much the lawn mower weighs and then add the estimated weight of a full tank of gas.  You’ll also need to know how wide the equipment is.  If you are using the loading ramp to carry heavy items across it, you’ll need to factor in your weight as well as the maximum weight of the items you’ll be carrying to be on the safe side.

With weight capacities up to 1,200 pounds and an optional wheel kit, the TRAVERSE Walk Ramp is the perfect solution for tasks in furniture or equipment delivery as well as lawn care equipment transportation.

What will you be loading into?

Another important factor is the height of the highest level you’ll be using your loading ramp on.  This will determine the length of loading ramp you need in order to keep yourself at a safe incline ratio of 1:12.  To calculate your incline and find the length of ramp needed, use our incline calculator.

The TRAVERSE Walk Ramp is available in 4’, 6’, 8’, 10’, 12’ and 14’ lengths with a 30” usable width.

What will the conditions be like when you’re using the loading ramp?

In addition to knowing what you’re loading and how you’re loading it, you’ll also need to know if the loading ramp will be exposed to the outdoor elements on a regular basis.  This will help you determine what type of grip and coating you’ll need on your loading ramp for safe use.

The TRAVERSE Walk Ramp offers an extruded, slip-resistant surface.  Also available is powder coating which allows you to change the aluminum ramp to the color of your choosing.

If you have questions about which industrial ramp will meet your needs, give our Industrial/Commercial department a call today at 1-888-362-8612.
