Each ramp is custom made… with love
Let us build a custom ramp for your retail, residential, institutional, or commercial location! All of our ramps are custom suited to fit the step height and sidewalk for a single step condition. Ramps for multi-stepped conditions are outside of our program scope but we can certainly point you in the right direction. We’re here to help you solve even the most difficult stepped locations!
For a standard single step ramp, watch the video above and follow the instructions below.
For multi-stepped conditions and permanent building code compliant ramps please send a photo showing the entire entryway to email@example.com, this will help get the ball rolling!
Take a photo of the entire entryway.
Take a look at the entryway and envision the placement of the ramp. Stand in front of the entryway and take a picture of the entire entrance including the step in front of the doorway.
Take two photos of each side of the step (at 34″ apart) and use a standard imperial tape-measure placed up against the step to show the measurement.
One on the left side. The other on the right.
Take these photos with the camera aimed straight-on and level with the step to make sure we’re able to get clear and accurate measurements. Also include a small sign in the photo noting the side the measurement is being taken on.
Select a paint colour.
Go ahead, click on the colour you’d like – red, green, yellow, or blue. Sorry, but we do not do custom colours at this time.

A positive impact on the community
“Quadrangle has long admired StopGap and when the opportunity to get our hands dirty in the shop came up, we jumped at the opportunity. Haley Rae and Velanie were a pleasure to work with while Luke was as charismatic as ever and let us pick his brain about design solutions and how he grew his organization. Our team had a great time prepping ramps for distribution to businesses, residences, and cultural institutions across the province. If you are looking for a fun activity to do with your team or friends while also making a positive impact on the community, I highly recommend doing a Paint Day.”
An incredible time laughing and learning and painting
“I wanted to extend my thanks to the StopGap Foundation for inviting us in for the day to help paint ramps. It ranks as one of my best days of the year. The kindness, generosity and compassion of the team is evident in everything they do: from providing information to me and my fellow volunteers about the mission and value of StopGap, to instructing us on the best way to paint (there’s a technique!), Velanie, Haley Rae and Luke were equal parts patient and fun, and I had an incredible time laughing and learning and painting. Thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of the StopGap mission for the day!”
It was a great experience“It was a great experience to participate and to know that a ramp I helped paint was going to be used by a specific vendor.”
We are always striving to provide equal access
Here at Charlie’s having a StopGap ramp in our space has significantly improved our customer, volunteer, and staff’s experience using the entrance. As a bike shop, the obvious benefit is the ease of entering and exiting the shop with a bike in hand, but it’s also added so much more. We are always striving to provide equal access to everyone in the community, and to be an ally whenever we can. Because we are both a shop, and community charity space it meant a lot to us to be able to make our storefront accessible. Thank you StopGap!
We are thrilled to be able to accommodate
Originally, our busy downtown restaurant only had one wheelchair accessible entrance which was through our side door. We were always more than happy to assist and accommodate all of our patrons but it could occasionally prove to be an inconvenience for all parties involved. Fortunately, we were informed about getting in touch with the very friendly folks at StopGap. Within a week the ramp was built and delivered. There it was: a mobile, yet very sturdy gateway through our front doors. Now all of our customers can enter through our front door with ease and dignity and we are thrilled to be able to accommodate them as such.
Making a true connection to the community
StopGap was an incredible experience. I learned through Luke, just how inaccessible places can be. What he did about it is truly inspiring. These ramps are custom built to accommodate many spaces, sizes, and placements. The program is making a true connection to the community and businesses who can now welcome all customers through the use of a StopGap ramp. Working with the team and painting the ramps felt great. I can’t wait to mention StopGap to any business I come across that does not have a ramp.
Re-connecting with your community and gaining fresh perspective
Participating in StopGap’s Team Building program this year was a highlight for the Intelligent Change team! The StopGap team has created an awesome half day program which walks you through the Foundation’s story and provides the team with the hands-on experience required to make it all happen. It’s a fun physical activity that takes your team outside the office and enables you to bond in a completely different environment, while re-connecting with your community and gaining fresh perspective on accessibility in our city. We love StopGap’s mission and were thrilled to spend some time in the shop, alongside the StopGap team, working to make the world an even better place.
The ramp drop truly made the experience“Everyone who took part in the painting project had a wonderful time and were inspired by the work that your team does. The ramp drop truly made the experience for the volunteers. I believe they were even able to put it down in time for a woman with a stroller to use when entering the shop.”
