Amramp installs accessibility ramps and showers throughout the California area at businesses, residences, schools and institutions.
Amramp is the leading company in the United States specializing in modular steel wheelchair ramps, offering sturdy, customizable ramps for disability access that enable the aging and disabled population to remain in their homes with independence and mobility. Ramps can be installed temporarily for short or long term needs without damaging the housing structure as they are not a permanent modification to the home. Amramp products comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and are available for sale or rental with no minimum time frame and no ramp size restrictions.
Amramp also installs Vertical Platform Lifts which are used where the length of a ramp might be impractical. Portable wheelchair showers are used when a client cannot utilize the shower or tub facility and does not want to remodel the bathroom.
Amramp has been providing accessibility ramps, vertical platform lifts, stair chairs and wheelchair showers in Southern and Northern California since May, 2007 and has nine employees. Warehouse facilities and offices are located in Gardena and Santa Cruz, CA. See www.amramp.com/laoc and www.amramp.com/NorCal.
