MODULAR ACCESS SYSTEM
The PATHWAY® 3G Modular Access System consists of ramps, stairs, and platforms, all of which may be combined and configured in a variety of ways to provide a safe pathway to and from your home. Its unique features, variety of options, and custom capabilities make it an excellent choice when your residential access requirements extend beyond the scope of a portable ramp. This American-made modular ramp system is made of durable aluminum and comes complete with our lifetime warranty. Call customer service for additional information or click through the tabs below.
The PATHWAY 3G allows for infinite modular ramp and platform configurations, creating safe and seamless access for both standard and unique entryways. Ramp lengths from 2'-8' and platform sizes up to 8'x5' enable you to overcome any access challenge at your home.
SUPERIOR SURFACE OPTIONS
Choose from two surface options - solid and expanded metal - to meet your needs.
- The solid option features an extruded tread surface with raised ribs to provide exceptional slip-resistance.
- Expanded metal utilizes diamond-shaped openings to allow multi-directional traction and reduced surface accumulation.
PREMIUM HANDRAIL STYLES
Three handrail options are available. These component-based rail options are easy to assemble and customize. All styles are made of aluminum and feature a durable finish with a continuous top rail.
- The most popular handrail configuration, the two-line rail provides an additional gripping surface by adding a second rail below the continuous top rail.
- Vertical pickets offer an added level of safety, especially for children and small pets. Our pre-assembled aluminum inserts meet the 4-inch sphere rule for spacing.
- Horizontal pickets offer an aesthetic option while maintaining safety. These horizontal inserts run parallel to the topmost rail.
DURABLE AND SAFE
The PATHWAY 3G is made of high-strength aluminum which will not deteriorate in the outdoor elements and features slip-resistant surfaces that maintain traction in any weather. Sides are finished and flush with no hazardous nuts or bolts protruding into the usable ramp area.
The PATHWAY 3G is virtually maintenance free, it will not rust or rot and is constructed from an environmentally friendly material.
The ramp system will not impact your home's property value because it does not alter or add to the structure of the residence - no poured footers, no construction - just simple assembly.
QUICK AND EFFICIENT INSTALLATION
The PATHWAY 3G installs quickly, which means minimal disruption for you and your family. Typically, a 24-foot system can be installed, including handrails, in less than an hour.

Our aluminum, adjustable stair systems are available for use for up to 56 inches in height. The portable metal stairs are easy to attach to our platforms or an existing platform, deck or stoop
Our manual gate provides additional safety at the top of the stairs or the beginning of a ramp run.
Provides a safe and solid landing at the bottom of a ramp run. Ideal for use when a ramp ends in the grass or other soft surface. The landing pad eliminates the need for pouring a concrete pad and is available with or without handrails. Ground transition options are also available.
The 45-degree platform allows for multi-dimensional angle changes and uses less space than traditional platforms. Available in all surface options and select handrail styles.
LOW PROFILE PLATFORM
Serves the same purpose as our standard platform except this low profile version is designed for use with thresholds between 1-1/2” to 3-1/2” high. Available in multiple sizes and all handrail styles (shown with two-line rails).
Do concrete footers need to be poured?
Our multi-positional base feet have a large footprint which eliminates the need for concrete pavers or poured footers. They are also offset and rotatable, allowing you to tuck them under a ramp or set them close to a wall.
Does my modular ramp system have to go straight out or can it turn?
You can configure the system to be a straight run or it can turn left or right by simply using a turn platform. The ramp system can also incorporate a switchback by using a turn back platform or it can extend at an angle by using a 45 degree angle platform. The system can be configured to meet your exact needs.
What sizes do the platforms and ramps come in?
We offer standard resting platforms in the following sizes: 4'x4', 4'x5', 5'x5', 5'x6', 6'x6' and 8'x5'. Ramps are 36” & 48” wide and come in lengths of 2’-8’. Custom sizes are available upon request.
What do I use for ice and snow removal on ramps, platforms, and steps?
We suggest using Magnesium Chloride salt substitute. Check out a blog we wrote on this!
Why don't you sell platforms without handrails?
Safety is important to us and selling platforms with handrails is our standard.
What kind of tread is used on this ramp system?
Our platforms consist of a knurled, extruded tread for multi-directional traction, and our ramps feature a raised-rib, extruded tread for ultimate slip-resistance.
Can I get the black applied surface on this ramp?
No, it is not available on our modular ramp system. This surface is available on two of our SUITCASE® portable folding ramps.
How long will installation take?
Depending on the configuration, installation time will vary, however a 24-foot system can typically be assembled with minimal tools in less than 30 minutes.
Do the steps have to connect to one of your platforms?
The steps can not only connect to one of our platform but they can also easily connect to an existing platform or deck because they have 4 independently adjustable legs.
