Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can we ride bikes, scooters, and inline skates on your ramps?

A: Of course! Any sport you would do in a skatepark can be done on our ramps.

Q: Are your ramps loud?

A: Compared to wood, our ramps are very quiet. In most situations skating our ramps makes roughly the same amount of noise as a swimming pool or a trampoline.

Q: Are they strong?

A: Omega Ramps are extremely strong. Each ramp section is designed to withstand thousands of pounds of force.

Q: Are they heavy?

A: Ramp pieces vary in weight from a few hundred pounds for grinding blocks to around 1,000 pounds for taller ramp sections. In concrete terms they are very light but do require more than your back to move them.

Q: Are Omega Ramps permanent once installed?

A: We can install our ramps permanently or non-permanently. Later your ramps can be moved out fairly easily with common equipment like a backhoe or a bobcat.

Q: How much space do I need to install a miniramp?

A: Our ramps come in 2 1/2 foot wide sections. Your ramp could be as narrow as 5 feet (2 sections) or as wide as you want, depending on your space. The length of our standard miniramp is 25 feet. However, the length can be shortened up to a few feet if space is a constraint.

Q: I have space for a ramp but access may be an issue. I have big trees overhead and a narrow side yard. Will it be a problem?

A: We are able to install in most situations. Contact us to schedule a free, no obligation visit to discuss options.

Q: Can your ramps be integrated into my backyard setup?

A: We can work with you to integrate your ramps into decking, landscaping, etc. Depending on the water table at your location, we can even put your ramps in the ground. Contact us to schedule a site walk to look at how we can integrate with your current setup.

Q: Do I need a permit to install your ramps?

A: In most situations, our permanent and non-permanent ramps can be installed without a permit. However, different cities and counties have different requirements. We will work with you to determine if a permit is required and work with the jurisdiction to pull the permit.
