Rent a Ramp (or VPL) for Graduation

By April 16, 2019 September 13th, 2019 No Comments

There is no time quite like graduation. Friends and family come together to celebrate a student’s achievements and watch as they cross the stage to accept a diploma. Make sure that your ceremony is fully accessible to students, faculty members, and families of all abilities by renting a ramp or platform lift.

Oftentimes, students step up two or more steps to take the iconic “walk across the stage”. But what happens when a student (or faculty member) can’t walk up those steps?

Solution: Ramp Rental

Instead of leaving students out of the big day, consider renting a ramp. A temporary ramp can provide access to your stage for everyone.

Our modular ramps can be quickly assembled before your event, and can be arranged to fit nearly any stage. After your event, we can remove the ramp in just a few hours.

Solution: Platform Lift (VPL) Rental

If you have a particularly high stage (more than 5 steps up) or you don’t have a lot of space for a ramp, you still have options! You can also rent a wheelchair lift (also known as a “Vertical Platform Lift” or “VPL”), a device that looks similar to a small elevator. These lifts are great for short-term use, and take up only a little bit of space next to the stage.
