A vertical platform lift is an elevating machine, whereas a ramp is an inclined plane placed in addition to or instead of stairs. Ramps allow wheelchair users and people to push strollers, carts, and the lift is generally used from a ground level to the elevated entrance into a home. Take this quiz to test your knowledge about modular ramps And vertical platform lifts.

• 1.

What material are modular ramps made from?

• A.

Steel

• B.

Aluminum

• C.

Wood

• D.

Copper

B. Aluminum
Explanation
Modular ramps are made from aluminum because it is a lightweight and durable material that is resistant to rust and corrosion. Aluminum is also easy to work with and can be molded into different shapes and sizes, making it ideal for constructing ramps. Additionally, aluminum ramps are more portable and easier to install compared to ramps made from other materials such as steel or wood.

What are the ADA guidelines for rise/run?

• A.

2’ of ramp for every 1” of rise

• B.

1’ of ramp for every 1” of rise

• C.

1’ of ramp for every 3” of rise

• D.

1’ of ramp for every 12” of rise

B. 1’ of ramp for every 1” of rise
Explanation
The ADA guidelines for rise/run state that there should be 1 foot of ramp for every 1 inch of rise. This means that for every inch of vertical height, the ramp should extend horizontally by 1 foot. This ensures that the ramp is at a safe and manageable slope for individuals using mobility devices such as wheelchairs or walkers.

Rate this question:

Modular ramps are best for small spaces.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Modular ramps are not necessarily the best option for small spaces. While modular ramps can be a convenient and flexible solution for accessibility needs, their size and design can vary. Depending on the specific dimensions and layout of a small space, a different type of ramp, such as a folding or portable ramp, may be more suitable. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that modular ramps are always the best choice for small spaces.

Rate this question:

• 4.

What is the weight capacity per square foot on a modular ramp?

• A.

50 pounds per square foot

• B.

800 pounds per square foot

• C.

100 pounds per square foot

• D.

1000 pounds per square foot

C. 100 pounds per square foot
Explanation
The weight capacity per square foot on a modular ramp is 100 pounds. This means that the ramp can safely support up to 100 pounds of weight for every square foot of its surface area.

Rate this question:

• 5.

What is the width on a modular ramp?

• A.

36” wide

• B.

40” wide

• C.

24” wide

• D.

34” wide

A. 36” wide
Explanation
A modular ramp typically has a width of 36".

Rate this question:

• 6.

We do not offer wooden ramps.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement "We do not offer wooden ramps" is false. This means that the company does offer wooden ramps.

Rate this question:

• 7.

We can build ramps that require turns.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
It is possible to build ramps that require turns. These ramps can be designed and constructed in a way that allows for smooth transitions and safe navigation around corners or curves. This can be particularly useful in situations where space is limited or when accommodating specific site constraints. By incorporating turns into ramp designs, accessibility can be improved and individuals with mobility challenges can have easier access to different areas or levels.

Rate this question:

• 8.

A vertical platform lift is a great alternative to a ramp if space is limited.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
A vertical platform lift is indeed a great alternative to a ramp when space is limited. Unlike ramps that require a certain amount of horizontal space to be installed, vertical platform lifts can be easily installed in small areas. They provide a vertical movement, allowing individuals with mobility challenges to access different levels of a building without the need for a long ramp. This makes them an efficient and space-saving solution for places where space is limited.

Rate this question:

• 9.

A VPL cannot plug into a standard outlet.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
A VPL (Virtual Programming Lab) can plug into a standard outlet. This means that it can be connected and powered using a regular electrical socket, just like any other electronic device. The statement is false because it suggests that a VPL cannot be connected to a standard outlet, which is incorrect.
