A wheelchair is a great mobility solution, but it definitely comes with several challenges. Ironically, your own home is one of the least wheelchair-friendly places, but you can change that with the help of home wheelchair ramps.
Residential & Commercial Wheelchair Ramps
Freedom Mobility both sells and installs a complete line of the highest-quality wheelchair ramps in Central Maryland. We can perform wheelchair ramp installation in your home in Annapolis, Hanover, Towson, Glen Burnie, Owings Mills, Columbia or anywhere in Central Maryland.
Our comprehensive solutions include modular ramps, portable ramps, semi-permanent ramps, bariatric ramps and door threshold ramps. All ramps are made in America and installed by experienced, professional installation teams. Depending on your circumstances, we can generally provide installation within 24 hours to a week after your consultation with one of our professionals.
Modular ramps are typically sectioned into several segments that are then assembled to form the desired accessibility structure. Sometimes, you might need only two sections to form a smooth surface over the steps to your home’s entrance. In other cases, it might be necessary to build a ramp with a 90-degree turn in order to accommodate the landscape. When the difference in height between the doorstep and the ground is significant, several ramps can be used to provide a gradual decline instead of a sharp angle.
Our Maryland modular ramp systems feature multiple configurations to fit unique entryway situations. They also offer multiple safety elements, including sturdy handrails. The modular ramps we carry are made in the U.S. and utilize the latest technology available on the market, which makes them one of the safest aluminum modular ramps in the industry. Our installers are experienced with a wide range of variables and will find the most efficient solution for your mobility needs.
Designed for quick and easy use with mobility scooters and wheelchairs, portable mobility ramps serve as an inexpensive accessibility solution where semi-permanent modular ramps or vertical platform lifts are not applicable. However, keep in mind that external assistance may be needed for users of such ramps since they don’t come with rails, especially if the ramp is used to form a steep slope.
Portable ramps are extremely versatile and can be used both at home and on the go. At home, they can help you get in and out of the house fast and easily. On the go, use them to safely enter a minivan in a wheelchair or to move a scooter into the truck bed when your loved one is in a passenger seat. And businesses that are not required to have ADA-compliant entryways can keep a portable ramp on hand in case a wheelchair-bound visitor comes in.
Speaking of businesses, Freedom Mobility also sells and installs commercial-grade ramps in Central Maryland, in case you are looking for a more permanent accessibility solution. ADA and IBC compliant commercial modular ramps offer a comprehensive solution for commercial mobility access. Businesses in need of wheelchair access to their buildings can rely on our sturdy and durable semi-permanent ramps. These ramps feature an all-aluminum design that is easy to set up and reconfigure for any layout. Our commercial-grade wheelchair ramps are ideal for buildings designed without a built-in ramp or accessibility provisions in general. We can help you make your structure more accessible to both your employees and your clients.
Threshold ramps are designed to eliminate bumpy transitions for wheelchair users. These ramps are often used on either or both sides of a door or an open entrance. When the flooring dips and forms a single step, a threshold ramp can provide a smooth transition. Some doorways have a protruding frame running across the floor, in which case a threshold ramp can form a “bridge” over it to let the wheelchair user comfortably pass the obstacle. In a single home, there may be multiple areas where a threshold ramp can be extremely useful. If you are not sure about the exact placement, one of our Maryland wheelchair ramp experts can help you determine your accessibility requirements.
Our heavy-duty bariatric ramps are designed with up to 800 lb. weight capacity. They come in different configurations, lengths and widths, and can be customized to your unique needs. Whether you need a residential or commercial bariatric ramp, Freedom Mobility can help you choose the right capacity and the right model for your needs. Our threshold bariatric ramps feature an interlocking multi-fold design, durable welded construction and easy assembly, which also makes them extremely portable. Despite the fact that they are made to support a significant amount of weight, our bariatric ramps are not that heavy and can be folded and carried similar to a suitcase.
