Features in a public building specification:
           
Infill Balustrade Handrails - designed to reduce the open space between the bars on a ramp. This then prevents users from climbing or falling through gaps. >>View Case Study
       
Slip resident walkway with integral perforation allows any water to pass through rather than collect on the ramp.
                   
● Highlighted yellow tread to single the start/end of the ramp or platform where required. Yellow tread is a safety feature, designed to help those with impaired vision identify the nose of the steps when descending or ascending. Additionally, it helps users distinguish any level changes. >>Learn More
       
 Highlighted yellow tread
                     
 Mesh infill skirt is often specified. It prevents people access to the underside of the ramp structure. This is not a legal requirement, but we would always recommend it for a school application.
                  
Trombone end, as the name suggest is added on the end of a Rapid Ramp for extra safe. Designed to stop clothes catching.

Access Hatch - Modular ramp
 Customised Powder Coating

 Rapid Ramp comes in green or black as standard, however you can choose a colour to match your requirement. All we require is your RAL colour number, this can be identified by a colour chart as shown below. 

Document M of the Building Regulations specifies that handrails should be ‘warm to touch’. Our rails are finished with a sufficiently thick Nylon coating of low thermal conductivity, so that body heat is not conducted away from the hand. Your hand could stick to a galvanised rail if the rail was below Zero Degrees Celsius.  >>View case study

Rapid Loc:
Rapid Loc is the most versatile ramp product on the market for solving access issues. Tiles are used to create ramps of any shape, size or gradient; from small ramp through to large access solution. >>Learn More
