Can You Cover A Wheelchair Ramp With Rubber?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: October, 2021

A wheelchair ramp can be covered with rubber to deliver a non-skid surface that will not rot or rust. It will provide safe handicap access.

A rubber wheelchair ramp can be used indoors and outdoors, at homes and businesses, with some options more appropriate for temporary applications and others more suitable for permanent applications. Rubber is relatively easy to install, simple to trim for a custom fit, and portable. It can go on a new build, wood, metal, or aluminum ramp or slope over stairs, and it will make the surface safer and more durable.

There are many Greatmats’ products that would work if you’re interested in making a rubber wheelchair ramp, with the following 5 representing some of the best options:
