Disabled Access Stage Ramp from Design Quintessence

disabled access ramp for stages

When you have a staging system, an essential part of it is the ramp option that you have available. Most stages have ramps but, as far as we are aware, no portable stage disabled access ramp actually meets the Australian Standards' requirement of a 1:14 design grade. DQ set about designing a disabled access ramp set at the 1:14 grade that was modular and light weight whilst maintaining the existing stage design aesthetic.

The result achieves exactly what was required. The 2.1m long decks are light weight and at the 1:14 grade, each reaches a vertical distance of 150mm. Therefore, the number of decks simply depends on the height of the stage, eg 900mm high stage = 6 decks (excluding the necessary landings). The leg mounting clamp assembly bolts to the side of the stage and these are what sets the correct gradient of the decks. Additionally, the decks and landings have special guard rails that bolt on to prevent wheels running over the edge of the ramp or landing.

Development of the ramp involved a R&D process of more than six months but the end result was worth the investment to produce what we believe is the only standard portable stage disabled access ramp that meets the Australian Standards that is available "off the shelf" in Australia.
