Products of Guldmann

Telescopic Ramps

Stepless telescopic ramps are versatile ramps designed for use in numerous places and to cover differences in level, where height and length may vary, and where low ramp weight is an important consideration. Stepless telescopic ramps are available in different lengths with either two or three telescopic pieces to accommodate different needs. It is simple to extend the ramp sections to the required length and push them together again to create a shorter ramp as required. A simple locking mechanism makes sure the ramp remains fixed at the selected length both during transport and when in use.

Doorstep Ramps

Stepless doorstep ramps are designed for use in places where it is undesirable – or not possible – to remove an existing doorstep. Stepless doorstep ramps are easy to position on top of an existing doorstep. These ramps are made of aluminum, which means that they are extremely light. They feature a non-skid surface and are available in two different widths. In addition, Stepless can also provide customised doorstep ramps on the basis of actual measurements.

EasyFold Pro

Stepless EasyFold Pro ramps feature a simple, light design but can nevertheless cope with heavy loads. These ramps have a wide driving surface and can handle loads of up to 350 kg, which means they are an excellent choice for use with electric wheelchairs and mobility scooters, as well as for people pushing prams or using a rollator. EasyFold Pro ramps are available in different lengths to accommodate different needs. We always recommend using the longest ramp possible – the longer the ramp, the gentler the gradient and the easier the ramp is to negotiate.
