ADA Concrete Ramps
Since the Americans with Disabilities Act was passed in 1990, many property owners and managers have had to reevaluate and upgrade their buildings and parking lots. This act was designed to allow accessibility for those in wheelchairs or electric scooters to public buildings and other areas. One major factor in the design and construction of these public areas is concrete ramps. Concrete ramps allow disabled people to get out of cars, get into buildings, or onto sidewalks. Bernardo Concrete, Inc. has years of experience constructing concrete ramps. The ADA has a set of requirements for property owners to abide by when making their properties ADA compliant. These requirements can be complicated for someone not used to working with them. Bernardo Concrete, Inc. can help you get your property up to code and accessible to handicapped patrons.
ADA Concrete Ramp Considerations
There are many things to consider when designing a new concrete ramp. The ADA has set forth the required width, slope, and grade of a concrete access ramp. Consideration of landings, edge protection, outdoor conditions, proper signage, and much more needs to be taken into account when making these types of upgrades in order to be compliant. A typical placement for a concrete ramp would be where the sidewalk transitions to the asphalt. This type of ramp allows disabled people to access a parking lot or cross a street without having to navigate a curb.

Bernardo Concrete can walk you through the steps needed to get your property up to code for a reasonable price.
