Steps Plus makes and installs precast pedestrian ramps. We do NOT make any ramps for vehicles. Custom components are made to fit each project. Handicap ramps are designed to be in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Other ramps, such as the loading dock ramp pictured below, are designed to fit each customer’s needs. Ramp tops have a broom finish for traction. The sides of the ramps can be finished with the same stucco, stone or brick finishes available for our steps or they can be cast in white or colored concrete with an etched finish. (See our Architectural Precast Color Chart in the “Architectural Precast / Cast Stone section of our website for a small sample of available colors.) Standard ornamental iron rails or heavy duty pipe rails can be added to the ramps.
Advantages: Most precast ramps can be installed in one day with little disruption to the the customer’s normal activities. Ramps made of wood or poured-in-place concrete often involve messy sitework which often drags on for days. Once the installation is complete, a precast ramp is ready for immediate use. Components are made up of high strength, low absorption concrete that is fully cured indoors.
The ramp, step and sign holder/planter at the People’s AME Zion Church in Syracuse, NY were all made of custom colored concrete in order to match the tone of the stone trim on the building.
