Learning something new every day is what keeps you happy and intrigued (everyone tells me this at least). Today, I was double checking my details and pricing for a Ramp Threshold and found out that they are not shipped in one continuous wide piece, but shipped in sections that interlock and are assembled in the field. The other thing I learned was that the screw qty – usually 1 per foot – is now 1 per foot and multiplied per section.

So a two piece section will have a double row of screw holes, and of course a 3 pc section will have 3 sets of screw holes, etc...

For those of you who do not know what a ramp threshold is, one end is a higher height than the other end. Used for ADA compliance and/or wheeled carts.

Companies who make Ramp Thresholds include National Guard, Pemko, Reese & Hager,.

Another thing to consider when ordering Aluminum Ramp Thresholds is that the ends are open if you don't specify "a return closed end"
