Modular wheelchair access ramps
To access buildings and to accommodate weights wooden ramps cannot hold, modular wheelchair ramps are instead used for a long term. These ramps are sturdier and more extended and can be attached permanently.

Modular ramps are usually built with handrails, are semi-permanent and made of high-grade aluminum.
