A porch can be custom-designed with a ramp like this for convenience and accessibility. An integrated part of this covered porch, the ramp shown here would be a lifesaver for family members who use a wheelchair or can't navigate steps, especially on rainy days! | Atlanta Porch Contractor | Exovations
A ratio of 1:12 is the maximum slope that can be used for a ramp. This means that there must be 12 inches of handicap ramp length for every 1” of height. Even though this ratio is viable it can still be a little steep for some people to make there way safely up or down. It is preferable to use a ratio of 1:16 if possible for the most safe and convenient use by the wheelchair.
