How long of a ramp should I buy?

Recommended Slope Angles:
7-degree:  Manual wheelchair users without assistance

> 10-degree: Manual wheelchairs assisted
         - An able assistant to help those users unable to do it alone
         - OK for strong independent wheelchair users

> 12-degree: Power wheelchairs or scooters and assisted manual chairs

> 15-degree: Restricted space, Unoccupied loading/unloading


Determining Ramp Length:
Use your desired slope. Measure total rise (how many inches from lower level to upper level)

7-degree: Rise distance divided by 1.5

> 10-degree: Rise distance divided by 2

> 12-degree: Rise distance divided by 2.4

> 15-degree: Rise distance divided by 3

Example: For a desired slope of 7 degrees with a rise of 12" (1 foot), 12/1.5 = 8 foot ramp
