Loading Ramps


    To calculate the ramp length for your requirements, you can use this simple formula:
    (Trailer Height divided by Gradient) multiply by 100 = Length of Ramp required

    Firstly you need to measure the height of the trailer or deck you wish to load onto / off.
    The maximum (steepest) recommended gradient is 30° (%).

    Example 1
    Trailer height:    1.2m

    Gradient:             30°
    (1.2 ÷ 30) x 100 = (0.04) x 100 = 4.0m

    Example 2

    Deck height:       0.9m

    Gradient:             28°
    (0.9 ÷ 28) x 100 = (0.03) x 100 = 3.0m

    If in doubt, contact us and we will gladly assist you in calculating the ramp length that best suits your requirements.
