API Outdoors® Folding Arch Ramp
The API Outdoors Folding Arch Ramp gives you the best of both worlds when loading any low clearance equipment or ATV into a pickup! Arched design takes care of your low-clearance needs and the folding feature gives you storage in the smallest spaces. Built of rugged aircraft aluminum, these durable ramps feature a 3'' arch in the upper half of the ramp to prevent equipment from dragging on the tailgate, preventing a possibly dangerous hang-up. Flexible PVC plastic finger caps over-lap the tailgate to protect the truck's finish and hold ramps steady while loading. Each pair includes a heavy-duty set of stabilizing straps that double as tie-downs. Each ramp measures 12''x89''. Pair weighs 30 lbs. Weight capacity: 1500 lbs./pair.

Details:There are several places I can't take him due to the 1-2 step height barrier. Do you think this product could be placed to push him up the ramps over the 1-2 steps? I think the weight allowance would permit someone to walk on the ramp, push him and his weight with the chair.
A:Yes it can do the job.
But not by you.
The person helping must pull the wheel chair backwards up the ramps.
If you can pull him backwards up a normal set of stairs then you can use this ramp. It is easier to use the ramp than pull up stairs. If still have to be stroung enough to pull it up hill over steps.
A:They would handle the weight, but that would not automatically make them a safe choice in every situation. There are too many variables (angle of the incline, size of the wheelchair's tires, weather conditions, and more) to say this would be a safe bet. I would ask a professional at a medical supply store to see if their is a safer and/or more convenient alternative.
