BARTLETT, Tenn.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--American Access, a premier modular wheelchair ramp manufacturer headquartered in Bartlett, Tenn., today launched three new ramp designs in response to evolving consumer demands. The company introduced the Classic, an updated version of its solid-surface ramp; the XM, an open-weave model; and the Hybrid, an economical, retail-friendly wood-surface ramp.
“We are excited about the revolutionary nature of these new designs, especially the Hybrid, which we believe will change the way people think about ramps.”
“We’ve been working on these designs for several years now as we’ve listened to the needs and desires of our customers,” said Brian Clark, president of American Access. “We are excited about the revolutionary nature of these new designs, especially the Hybrid, which we believe will change the way people think about ramps.”
The Hybrid, which features wood planks interlocking in an aluminum frame, is expected to be a popular choice among consumers, especially seniors looking to “age in place.” Aesthetic options for the ramp allow customers to choose from a range of composite decking materials, from Trex to natural cedar wood. Ease and speed of installation and a low price point were top priorities for the design of the Hybrid system.
“The Hybrid installs quickly and easily, which we believe will pleasantly surprise customers,” Clark said. “The Hybrid will also be one of our most economically friendly ramps, making it a perfect choice for the retail market.”
The new Classic ramp is slip-resistant, requires no maintenance and has a 1,000-pound capacity. It can be assembled in only hours and has a competitive resale value. Similarly, the XM model is quick to assemble, requires no maintenance, tolerates stress up to 1,000 pounds and boasts two-way traction.

In addition to extended modular ramps, it produces threshold and portable ramps, including the Big Lug, Hero and Sidekick models.
