Making a Wheelchair Ramp Safe with Gritted Tiles

Challenge

A woman in a wheelchair wanted to live independently in her own home and had a wheelchair ramp built to her front door. Unfortunately whenever it got wet or snowy it was treacherous and she was afraid to try to go up or down for fear of getting into an accident.  

Solution

Ergo Advantage put down gritted tiles on the ramp and gritted edging at top and bottom

  • The woman is now able to go up and down her ramp in any weather without any fear
  • When there has been leaves or mud on the tiles she just sprays them down with her garden hose and they are clean again
  • They look great and have improved safe arrivals

 “Thank you so much for these incredible tiles, they have been a major factor in improving my quality of life!”
