Best Ramp Options

Good news!

No need for you to stress out and start doing research into ramps and comparing pricing, reviews etc.; I have done all of the research for you! I have gone through the trouble of spending time researching, making phonecalls, and chatting with a number of companies to provide you with top notch service.

Below I have provided you with the top most recommended ramp in the permanent and portable categories.



All ramps are linked with the purchasing option through a company called Discount Ramps as my experience with this company was quicker, more efficient and cheaper than the others I have contacted. Additionally, Discount Ramps ships their products nationwide which can benefit you wherever in the US you may be. You can click on the picture for a direct link to Discount Ramps or feel free to purchase them through any other company/website of your choice.

Follow along as we go through the most recommended permanent and portable ramps.

Before we start, something good to keep in mind for all outdoor ramps is that aluminum tends to be the best material for outdoor ramps as it is sturdy, lightweight, and pretty much maintenance-free (including not rusting). With that in mind, below are the recommendations you have been waiting for.


Modular Ramps

The most recommended modular permanent ramp is the:

EZ-Access Pathway 3G Modular Ramp System


This ramp is a prefab, hence easier to install, yet adjustable to most situations and therefore the most praactical option in most cases. This ramp offers many of the features we have mentioned in our discussion about Permanent Ramps and ranks in as the most recommended modular ramp.


Key Features include:

  • Manufactured from high-strength, lightweight aluminum
  • 1,000 lb. weight capacity per-section
  • Ramps, platforms, and turnbacks available to create a custom access solution
  • Available in lengths between 4′ to 30′ which can accommodate heights between 8″ and 60″
  • Textured extruded aluminum or expanded metal surface for increased traction and safety
  • Easy to assemble and virtually maintenance and rust free
  • Sleek two-line handrails for safety and security
  • No anchoring in concrete footings or pads required

Adopted from

Prices vary from $699.99 to $2,999.99 depending on size. Depending on the length of the ramp, landing pad or platforms might be needed which prices are as follows:

  • landing pad is $407.99
  • landing platform is $1,109.99


Portable Ramps

The most recommended portable/temporary ramp is the:

Silver Spring Aluminum Multi-fold Wheelchair Ramp


This ramp series offers a wide selection of lengths which can accommodate many different rises you may need to overcome. The ramp series also includes many of the features we have mentioned in our discussion about Portable/Temporary Ramps including multifold and suitcase which present as the most practical ramp in most situations.


Key Features include:

  • Manufactured from high-strength, lightweight aluminum
  • 600 lb. Weight capacity
  • Available in lengths between 4′ to 12′ which can accommodate heights between 8″ and 24″
  • High-traction grit surface and 1.75″ side rails for added safety
  • Includes steel security pins for mounting, Velcro closures for transportation, and built-in carrying handles
  • Tapered curbs allow exterior doors to be opened without hitting the ramp
  • Folds to 1/4 of its original size and breaks down into two easy-to-carry pieces

Adopted from

Prices vary from $184.99 to $799.99 depending on size.


There is a cheaper option that is also highly recommended and comes along with 5 star reviews from customers, but has less features than the most recommended ramp. This option is:

Silver Spring Single-Fold Wheelchair Ramp


This ramp provides most of the benefits needed but does have less features than the Multi-fold option which are listed as follows:

  • Only folds in half lengthwise (bulkier for transport and storage)
  • Less available sizes (2′ to 6′)
  • Does not have the high-traction grit surface
  • Prices vary from $79.99 to $224.99 depending on size


Telescoping Ramps

Telescoping Ramps are generally not the most recommended portable ramps as they can only be used for manual wheelchairs or mobility devices with perfectly aligned wheels. They are more compact and lighter as they come as two separate narrow pieces which comes in handy for storage, transport and for fitting narrow doorways. In general though, I recommend sticking with the Silver Spring Multifold Ramp as it is more versatile for all situations which require a portable ramp as well as also providing most of the features for portability as the telescoping ramps.


Threshold Ramps

When it comes to threshold ramps it is difficult to recommend a specific product off the bat as each threshold situation is different. Even within one home itself, you may benefit from various different threshold ramps in different places throughout the home.

Here is a link to the threshold ramps Discount Ramps has to offer with all of the specifications, key features, and reviews. Of course, as they are the ramp specialists, I would recommend you give them a call and they can help you figure out which product is best for you and your situation.
