How Strong Are Aluminum Ramps?

The strength of aluminum ramps can range from 10,000 psi to 100,000 psi.

The strength of aluminum ramps depends mainly on the specific aluminum alloy used.

For example, the 7000 series of aluminum is stronger than the 6000 series.

Also, factors like the size and thickness will determine the overall strength of the aluminum ramp.

Aluminum ramps are usually made to carry different types of loads, such as heavy loads like the weight of a trailer or lighter loads like the weight of a wheelchair.

Can You Weld Aluminum Ramps

Aluminum ramps can be welded together to fix broken or loose parts.

Also, welding can be used to make some connections on the ramp stronger by binding the two metal parts together.

Remember to wear safety gear such as gloves and goggles to protect yourself during the welding process.

You will need some tools to install a wheelchair aluminum ramp system, such as:

  • pair of sawhorse
  • drill and drill bits
  • 1/2″ and 7/16″ wrenches
  • sockets
  • level
  • pop rivet gun

You should use patio blocks if you need to install the aluminum ramp on a surface with dirt, grass, or gravel.

Also, if you are installing the aluminum ramp on a concrete floor, then you can anchor the legs of the ramp to the concrete floor.

Next, you prepare and arrange the components of the aluminum ramp.

Ensure that the components and parts are complete and the installation guide is ready.

Different types of aluminum ramps come with varying guides for installation.

Next, you move on to constructing the aluminum ramps.

Aluminum wheelchair ramp

Aluminum wheelchair ramp

Follow the process below to construct the aluminum ramps:

  • Start the construction process by laying the frame rails on the sawhorse. The frame rails should be facing each other.
  • Next, you install the welded plank where the first hole is located at the top end of the frame rails.

These planks represent the top of the ramp.

Also, there will not be a plank at the last hole location because it will be used for the threshold.

  • Next, attach the planks through the holes in the frame rails using a hex bolt and a flat washer on the inside of the frame rail.
  • Next, you attach a slide nut to the opposite side of the hex bolt. Do not tighten the slide nut; instead, allow room to insert the posts.
  • Next, you finish installing the remaining welded planks to the frame rail.
  • Next, attach the entrance threshold to the other side of the ramp at the bottom.
  • Next, place a hex nut and a flat washer through the hole of the entrance threshold and the corresponding hole in the welded plank and tighten.
  • Next, you locate the entrance clip and insert a hex bolt and a flat washer through it and the hole in the rail.
  • Next, you fix a slide-nut to the bolt on the opposite side of the entrance clip.
  • Next, you attach the upper-t to the outside of the welded plank at the top end of the plank.
  • Next, you fix a hex bolt and a flat washer through the hole in the upper-t and the corresponding hole in the welded plank.
  • Next, insert a flat washer and lock nut on the opposite side and tighten it.

 

Attaching the posts

Each post will be attached to every location where there is a welded plank.

First, line up the posts with the slide nuts that are located at the sides of the ramp.

Next, slide the post in the slide-nuts and tighten the bolts on the opposite end to prevent the post from sliding.

Installing the Handrail

Ramp legs

You will need to check the instructions for the specific length and location for installing legs to the aluminum ramps.

Follow the steps below to install the ramp legs to the aluminum ramp:

  • First, insert a hex bolt and flat washer into the leg channel and insert a slide nut at the opposite side.
  • Next, attach the legs to the posts by sliding the slide nuts up the outside groove of the post.
  • Next, tighten it so the legs will not slip or slide. Repeat this process to attach all the legs to the ramp.
  • Next, attach the support brackets at the bottom of the post.

Put a hex bolt and a flat washer through the hole in the support bracket and attach a slide nut at the opposite side.

  • Next, slide the support bracket through the bottom of the posts and tighten them to hold them in place.

You can adjust the legs to the desired height after placing the ramps in the desired location.

  • Next, fill in the open areas of the ramp floor with the ramp boards and hold-down angles.

You use the hold-down angles to secure the ramp boards to the ramps by placing the hold-down angle between the ramp board and the frame rail.

  • Next, use a drill to fix the hold-down angles to the boards.
  • Next, insert a pop-rivet into each hole and use a pop-rivet gun to attach them securely.

Repeat this process with all the hold-down angles to connect them.

Ensure that all the bolts on the aluminum ramp are correctly tightened.

Now you can move the aluminum ramp to its desired location.

Constructing the landing

You will need to unbox the landing parts and check if they are complete or damaged. You will also need to use the installation manual.

Follow the steps below to construct the landing:

  • First, you place the landing on the sawhorses.
  • Next, insert a hex bolt and a flat washer from the inside of the landing and attach a slide nut at the opposite end.
  • Next, attach a post by sliding the groove of the post through the slide nut.

Lower the posts until the tab on the post is resting on the frame rail.

  • Next, tighten the bolts to prevent the posts from slipping.
  • Next, attach the handrails to the post with a handrail clip and bolts.
  • Now tighten all the bolts for the handrails and the post.
  • Next, you attach the curb rail by using a hex bolt, a flat washer, and attaching a lock nut to the other side.
  • Next, attach the legs to the landing by sliding the slide nuts up at the outside groove of the post.

Now you can move the landing to the desired location for installation.

Attaching the ramp to the landing

  • First, you start by moving the ramp to the desired location on the landing.
  • Next, you adjust and tighten the legs and support brackets to be placed firmly on the ground or patio blocks.
  • Next, use the ramp attachment clips to join the ramp and the landing together.

Line up the short slot on the clip with the first holes in the landing openings, insert a hex bolt and a flat washer, and then attach a lock nut at the opposite end.

  • Next, line up the longer slot in the attachment clip with the ramp and drill a hole to insert a bolt in this new hole.

Next, insert a hex bolt and a flat washer through the slot and the hole you drilled, then attach a flat washer and a lock nut at the opposite side and tighten them.

Are Aluminum Ramps Slick In The Winter

Snow on aluminum ramp

Snow on aluminum ramp

Aluminum ramps get slippery during the winter because of the snow. The snow has water which will cause the metal aluminum surface to become slippery.

It would be best to be careful when using any ramp surface during the winter because of the snow.

You can remove snow from your aluminum ramp by using shovels, ice-melts, or heating maps to remove or stop ice formation on the ramps.

How Do I De-Ice An Aluminum Ramp

De-icing is simply a process of removing ice or snow from any surface.

There are different ways to remove ice from an aluminum ramp, such as using a plastic shovel to remove the snow, or you can use what is called an ice melt.

Also, it may be harmful to use ice-melts on aluminum because the chemicals may affect the aluminum.

Some people also try putting heating pads under the aluminum ramps to produce heat and stop the water from freezing and becoming ice.

How To Attach Boards To Aluminum Ramp

You can attach the board to the aluminum ramp by using a hex bolt, a washer, and a lock nut to connect the ramp board to the ramp frame.

The board is sometimes called the board or welded plank.

How Much Does An Aluminum Ramp Weight?

An aluminum ramp usually weighs from 50kg to 300kg, depending on several factors.

The weight of aluminum ramps depends on various factors, such as the type of metal used for the ramps and the overall size and thickness of the ramps.

Different types of ramps are made for various purposes, such as a wheelchair ramp or a cargo loading ramp.

A cargo ramp will obviously have more weight than a wheelchair ramp because it is made to carry more weight.

Also, ramps are made from different metals, such as aluminum or steel.

Steel ramps are heavier than aluminum ramps of the same weight.

How To Decorate An Aluminum Ramp

Some people may decorate their aluminum ramps in the festive seasons to look more attractive.

You can decide to decorate your aluminum ramps by putting lights on them to create a beautiful appearance at night.

Other people may also decide to paint their aluminum ramps to look better.

How To Make Aluminum Ramps Longer

The length of aluminum ramps depends on the length of the frame rails.

If you want longer aluminum ramps, then you will need longer frame rails.

The longer the frame rails, the more legs, and boards you can attach to the ramp.

Is It Ok To Use Calcium Chloride On Aluminum Ramp

Yes, it is . Calcium salt is often used as a de-icing salt for removing ice or snow from the surface of the aluminum ramp.

Calcium chloride may be an effective way to de-ice your aluminum ramp, but it may affect the salinity of soil or waterways around that area.

The calcium chloride is used to slow down and affect the freezing point of water, which is used to de-ice surfaces like aluminum ramps.

How Much Weight Can An Aluminum Ramp Hold?

In general , aluminum ramps could hold about 300 lbs. to 24,000 lbs.

At the same time, aluminum ramps could be used for many different application , like  wheelchair ramps, trailer ramps, race car ramps, cargo ramps, etc.

For example, trailer ramps are usually made to hold about 2,500 lbs. to 3,000 lbs.

Obviously, a wheelchair ramp cannot be made to hold as much weight as a cargo ramp or a trailer ramp.
