Whether it’s one step or five steps to get into your home, when there is a wheelchair involved, it’s too many. We install weather-resistant aluminum ramps built by EZ Access and Prairie View Industries. They carry a full line of ramps from simple threshold ramps for that small bump before the door to modular ramps that can span 50 feet or more. Remember, for every inch or rise (ground to entrance), you need 12 inches of ramp. Twin City stair lifts are your local experts for all types of ramps in Minnesota!

Portable ramps are intended for rises under 24″.
