Steel Shed Ramps

Steel ramps are an excellent choice for your outdoor storage building. They are a tough and resilient option that can withstand heavy use. Sun Rise Sheds coats steel shed ramps with an anti-slip powder coating to help decrease slipperiness when it gets wet. Steel cost less than aluminum but are heavier to move. Therefore, steel ramps for a shed are best if you want a permanent ramp kept outside.

Aluminum Shed Ramps

Aluminum ramps are a lightweight option for your backyard shed. It’s easy to store these ramps inside the shed when not in use. It’s non-corrosive and provides excellent traction. It’s a bit more expensive than steel and not as strong but requires little upkeep to maintain. It’s a great option that can withstand heavy use while being easy to move when needed.

Standard Shed Ramp Specifications

When buying a shed, you will also want a shed ramp that works with the size of the doors you choose. Whether you choose a standard 9-lite or 2-panel door, a wooden double “barn style” door, or a roll-up door, you can find the ramp size and style to match. All our ramps for sheds come with the following standard specifications:

  • Two-foot-wide by five-foot-long sections in either steel or aluminum
  •  Diamond-plated material
  •  Anti-slip powder coating on steel ramps
  •  A ramp bar installed below the shed door to hold the ramps comes in four-foot, six-foot, or eight-foot widths

How to Decide which Type of Ramp is Right for Your Storage Shed

If you’re undecided between aluminum and steel for your shed ramp, we don’t blame you! Both are excellent materials that can withstand heavy use, look beautiful, and will last for years.

Material

Choose aluminum if you want a shed ramp that is easy to move, won’t rust, and grips well. You should know that it is more costly and may scratch more easily than steel.

Choosing a steel ramp for a shed is a durable option that is cost-effective and less likely to warp over time. However, it is a heavy material that is difficult to move, so it’s best to keep it in place once installed.

Size

When deciding on the size of your shed ramp, it’s helpful to match the size of the ramp to the size of your shed doors. For example, if your shed doors are six-foot-wide, a six-foot-wide ramp would be ideal.

Matching the size allows you to take advantage of the entire opening of your shed to move equipment, vehicles, and tools easily without scratching them or hurting yourself in the process.
