RR2 Modular Ramp Assembly
Fire Retardant and Styrene Butadiene Rubber Ramp Thresholds
- Rubber ramps meet the requirements of ADAAG-2010; CABO/ANSI A117.1-2013; UBC; and California Title 24, Part 2 (US)
- Rubber ramps are extruded from styrene butadiene rubber, a long-lasting, weather and ozone-resistant, abrasion and impact-resistant, and fire retardant material
- Rubber ramps are sold in one foot increments up to 15-foot lengths
- Rubber ramps can be butted together for longer lengths
- Rubber ramps are cut square on each end but are available with moulded rubber mitre returns which can be glued to each end for a more pleasing appearance
- Rubber ramps have a superior grip, anti-slip surface and a no bump tapered lead edge. Rubber ramps are classified by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., as a skid-resistant floor surface per UL standard for safety, UL410. Rubber ramps also meet the requirements of ASTM D 2047 and Federal Specification P-F-430C (US)
- Fire retardant rubber ramps are easy to install on most surfaces (including wood, concrete, tile and asphalt), using a construction adhesive. Mechanical fasteners are not required and not recommended
- Rubber ramps are also portable. For temporary applications, an assembly which has been bonded together but has not been bonded to a base surface, stays in place by its sheer weight and can be removed from one opening and placed at another opening
- Use RR200 (T-Rex) to glue rubber ramps to floor surfaces
- Rubber ramps are available for 1/2" and 1" offset heights
- Rubber ramps can be cross-cut to length or ripped to a custom offset height using a table or radial arm saw with a carbide-tipped blade. These modifications must be made in the field
The term ‘Access’ generally means the ease with which users can enter and circulate around a building, with due regard to other performance requirements e.g. security and fire protection. In particular, access should be provided for both ambulant and wheelchair-bound persons.
We offer a wide range of saddles, thresholds and ramps that satisfy the requirements of Document ‘M’. Designers should refer
to BS 8300:2009+A1:2010 Design of buildings and their approaches to meet the needs of disabled people. Code of practice - and also Approved Document M - Access to & Use of Buildings 2004, incorporating Revisions 2010 & 2013.
Ramp options include modular systems that can be assembled to suit virtually any length of ramp. Our 'Fire Retardant Rubber Ramp System' incorporates anti-slip features to the satisfaction of the demanding Underwriters Laboratories standard for safety UL410 and meets the requirements of US standards ASTM D 2047 and Federal Specifiation P-F-430C.
Doors are typically the weakest link in any partition designed to have acoustic sealing properties. Astragals, perimeter gasketing, drop seals and door sweeps can all be used to prevent sound from leaking through cracks around the door perimeter.
