Building Option - Ramps & Access Steps

Ramps and Steps

Provide easy access for all to your building with fully compliant ramps and access steps

Whether you hire or buy your modular or portable cabins from Portakabin, we can supply high-quality ramps and access steps to provide easy access and ensure you fulfil all regulatory requirements. You can also create an attractive entrance feature with our choice of canopies and walkways.

Ramps and access steps that comply with the latest access and fire regulations
For hired buildings we offer smart, modular ramps and steps for hire. These can easily be adapted to suit your site and, because they are modular, they can easily be reconfigured if your needs change. For purchased buildings, we can construct permanent concrete or wooden ramps or access steps that provide fully compliant access to your building. 

The Equality Act 2010 and Part M of the Building Regulations require that you provide easy access to ALL new and existing buildings that are larger than 30m2 and will be sited for more than 28 days – whether they are permanent or temporary, and regardless of their use. All of the ramps and access steps we provide fulfil the requirements of this legislation. If you'd like to know more, take a look at our answers to frequently asked questions about building access.

The modular ramps and steps available for HIRE are:

Techramp - for buildings larger than 30m2
This unique, highly engineered, attractive aluminium ramp has been specially designed to provide full compliance with the requirements of Part M of the Building Regulations, BS8300:2009 and Equality Act 2010 guidelines. It features handrails that are anti-slip, colour contrasting and not cold to the touch, as well as colour-contrasting landings, slopes and kick plates for improved visibility. Surfaces are slip-resistant, with a maximum incline of 1:15 to meet BS8300:2009 recommendations and a minimum unobstructed width of 1.5m to meet Part M and Equality Act guidelines.

Steel ramp -for buildings smaller than 30m2
Our standard modular steel ramp is designed for buildings with a floor area smaller than 30m2 or buildings of any size that will be sited for less than 28 days. It has a 1.2m unobstructed width to give 'reasonable provision' for disabled access. The all-steel frame and handrails provide high durability and the ramp has slip-resistant surfaces.

Steel access steps
These safe, durable steps are ideal for emergency fire escape staircases. Suitable for single or double fire doors, they have slip-resistant treads and landings and meet all building and fire regulation requirements.  

If you are buying your building, we will design and install suitable ramped and stepped access systems to ensure your building meets all regulatory requirements.



Portakabin provided an outstanding service throughout. Just getting the buildings on site was a complex operation, which Portakabin managed expertly. Even after the buildings were in use, Portakabin was very efficient at attending to any additional requirements we identified

Bob Forster, Headteacher

“True to their promise, Portakabin delivered the modules right on schedule. The installation went extremely well and Portakabin organised everything very efficiently so the building was completed and handed over on the agreed date".

Nicholas Marten, Director of College Operations
