Evaluation Worksheet

The evaluation worksheet features boxes for precise measurements, allowing for thorough assessment. Each box corresponds to specific dimensions, ensuring accurate data collection for the proposed ramp.

Customer Agreement

The customer agreement form outlines the proposed ramp system, special notes and customer information.


  1. Stretch the string line between the start and end points, ensuring it’s taut and straight. You may need assistance to hold the string firmly at both ends.
  2. Place the level on the string line at the starting point. Ensure the bubble is centered between the two lines on the level, indicating that the string line is perfectly horizontal.
  3. While keeping the string line taut and level, measure the vertical distance from the ground to the string line at the ending point. This measurement represents the rise.
  4. For the purposes of evaluating for a ramp system, determine if the yard slopes upward or downward and how many inches either way it slopes. Example: If your measurement with your string level was 24” and your rise at the porch was 20”, there are 4” of downward slope.
  1. When evaluating for shorter rises (2” and below), a rubber or threshold ramp can be used. Rampit USA rubber ramps come in the following sizes: ½”, ¾”, 7/8”, 1”, 1 ¼”, 1 ½”, 1 ¾” and 2”
  2. For rises that are more than 2” but less than 6”, a butt ramp could be a solution.
  3. For rises higher than 6” at a door, a platform is required before the ramp can be run in any direction.

Yes. Rampit USA uses standard 36” wide ramps and a variation of platform sizes depending on application. 5’x5’ standard platforms, 5’x8’ turnback platforms and 39”x5’ resting platforms are most commonly used at a residence. Determining which width ramp/platform system to use is based on the End Users form of mobility:

  1. If the End User has a standard wheelchair, walker, cane or other types of smaller mobility devices, a normal 36” wide ramp system will be used unless requested otherwise.
  2. If the End User has an oversized power wheelchair, or if they need to be transported in a hospital bed, a 48” wide ramp system with the use of 6’x6’ and 6’x10’ platforms will be required.

Rampit USA will always follow ADA Guidelines when evaluating for a ramp system. ADA Guidelines require a 1:12 slope ratio. This means for every 1” of rise from the ground to the desired starting point of the ramp system, you will need 1’ of ramp.

Rampit USA ramps are almost 100% Aluminum. The only materials that are not Aluminum in a Rampit USA ramp system are the plastic caps, plastic knuckles, self-tapping screws, nuts, bolts and washers.
