Getting over household thresholds with a manual or power wheelchair sometimes feels like climbing a mountain. But there are devices you can get to make rolling over thresholds a little easier. If you are looking for a small, lightweight, easy to use threshold ramp, it's hard to go wrong with this Prairie View Industries Threshold Ramp. This ramp is also strong and durable with an anti-slip surface. Designed to ramp heights of 1/2" to 3/4". Easy to install with pre-drilled holes and all necessary hardware.
No, but it is lightweight and easy to store upright in a closet or garage.
The manufacturer suggests the ramp be secured by using the pre-drilled holes on the top of the ramp. This is to prevent the ramp from moving while it is in use which could cause injury.
Yes, about 2″ wide to make for a smooth transition.
Do I recommend this threshold ramp? Absolutely – as long as your height difference is less than 3/4″ and you don’t mind installing it and potentially damaging your floor with screw holes. If you rent or don’t want to install a ramp, you may want to look a rubber threshold ramp.
