  • Dock high ramps for warehouses: These are ramps that are used to allow vehicles to access loading docks at the same height as the warehouse floor. They are often used in warehouses where goods are loaded and unloaded from trucks or other large vehicles.
  • Dock wells: These are structures that are built around loading docks to provide shelter and protection from the elements. They can be used to keep loading areas dry and safe, and may also be used for storage or as a workspace.
  • Ramps for parking garages: These are ramps that are used to allow vehicles to access different levels of a parking garage. They may be built using concrete or other materials, and are designed to be durable and able to withstand heavy use.
  • ADA compliant wheelchair ramps: These are ramps that are designed to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for accessibility. They may be used to provide access to buildings, loading docks, or other areas for people with disabilities.

Concrete ramp construction involves the process of building a ramp using concrete as the primary construction material. This can be done for a variety of purposes, such as providing access for vehicles, pedestrians, or people with disabilities.

The first step in concrete ramp construction is site preparation. This typically involves clearing the area where the ramp will be built, and grading the site to ensure that it is level and stable. Once the site is prepared, a foundation will be laid to provide a solid base for the ramp. This foundation may consist of a layer of compacted gravel, or it may involve the use of concrete footings or foundations.

After the foundation is in place, the next step is to form the ramp. This is typically done using wooden or metal forms, which are used to shape the concrete as it is poured. The forms are set up to create the desired slope and shape of the ramp, and they are held in place using stakes or other support structures.

Once the forms are in place, the concrete is poured and spread using a variety of tools, such as shovels, trowels, and bullfloats. After the concrete is poured, it is smoothed and finished using a variety of techniques, such as troweling, floating, and edging. The concrete is then left to cure for a period of time, typically several days, before it is ready for use.

After the concrete has cured, the forms are removed and the ramp is ready for use. Depending on the needs of the project, the ramp may also require additional finishes or treatments, such as sealing, coloring, stamping, or texturing.

Overall, concrete ramp construction requires a combination of site preparation, formwork, concrete pouring and finishing, and other techniques to create a durable and functional ramp.
