A switchback is a platform configuration that allows the ramp to turn around to fit more ramping in the allotted space. A straight layout will sometimes be unsuitable for a specific space. If you need a smaller ramp that will fit into a space with an unusual shape, a switchback is a good option.

This type of ramp is:

  • Versatile: A switchback has many potential options. It is appropriate for an apartment or a private home and is customizable by its material and length.
  • Space-saving: A ramp with a switchback conserves space. This is great for a compact living area or a place with a higher slope where you need to make sure the ramp makes the best possible use of the ramping.
  • Universal: A switchback must be installed to abide by local and federal building policies. The layout is ADA-compliant while still being customizable.
