FAQs about Skateable ramps
Are the ramps beginner friendly or for experienced skaters? Ramps are typically measured by their height, ranging from 2 foot to 4 foot. A 2 or 3 foot ramp is perfect for beginners while a 4 foot ramp is better suited to a more confident skateboarder. As a skateboarder gains skills, experience and confidence, they will enjoy skating higher ramps. Skateable Spaces can provide ramps for any level of skateboarder from 2 foot to 4 foot and beyond.

Are steel ramps better than wooden ramps or concrete skateparks? In most situations, steel ramps are the preferred type of skate ramp. This is particularly true if:
Your ramps are to be placed in an outdoor area and exposed to the weather
Your ramps need to be moved from time to time
You are looking for durable, long-lasting equipment
Cost is a consideration and you are seeking an economical option
Wooden ramps are best used only for indoor locations and are prone to wear and tear if used frequently. They do not tend to last more than 12 months in an exposed area in the Indian climate.
Concrete skateparks should be considered best for large, communal areas.
How can I extend the life of my steel ramps? It is best to repaint them once a year with an oil based exterior paint for metal surfaces to keep them in good condition. If ramps are well maintained they can last over 10 years (For a superior result we recommend using a first coat of metal primer and the a coat of paint)
Are the ramps only for skateboarding? Our steel ramps can also be used for a range of activities including BMX, roller skating and in-line skating.
Are shipping costs included? No, the prices we mention do not include the cost of shipping. We can offer shipping and installation at an extra cost.
How much noise do the metal ramps make? Contrary to popular opinion they are not much noisier than concrete skateparks. Sounds from skaters chatting, laughing and their skateboards are much louder than the noise from the ramps itself.
Do the metal ramps heat up? The ramps will warm up a little if kept outdoors in the afternoon sun but that is perfectly normal for it. Our ramps are coated with paint that ensure that they don’t feel too hot to skate on for anyone.
Is there a warranty on the ramps. Our Ramps come with a 6 months warranty against manufacturing defects. General wear and tear is not covered.
