The solution

The structure is made from treated 45 x 70 timber frames with Mortice and tenon joints which were bolted together with carriage bolts. The platform, ramps and steps are120mm x 25mm decking boards.  The steps are standard 2250mm tread with a rise of 200mm. and the platform height was 600mm.  The ramp slope of 1 in 2 (approx. 25 degrees) is intended to be challenging.  Handrailing is adjustable from 60mm high to 75mm.

The whole structure can be broken into flat sections for storage/transport.

The benefit

The client immediately climbed the steps and enjoyed the challenge but her lack of vision make her anxious with new experiences.
