We were tasked with specifying a ramp that would allow access for both a powered wheelchair user and an elderly gentleman on foot.
We also had to allow access to both sides of the property and therefore decided that the best solution was to install a large platform in front of the doorway, offering generous space to manoeuvre into position, with a ramp, with double handrails, running off of either side of the platform. This configuration meant that the wheelchair user could access the property from one direction, whilst also have the option to continue down the second ramp, into the garden at the rear of the property.
