This tool helps you calculate the required ramp length based on the height and incline angle.

## How to Use the Ramp Length Calculator

This calculator determines the length of a ramp required based on the height of the rise and desired slope ratio.

- Enter the height of the rise in inches.
- Enter the desired slope as a ratio (1:X). For example, for a slope of 1:12, you would enter 12.
- Click the “Calculate” button to determine the ramp length.

## How the Calculation Works

The calculation uses a basic mathematical formula to determine the ramp length based on the slope ratio:

**Ramp Length = Slope Ratio × Height of Rise**

Where the slope ratio is the value you input (X) and the height of rise is the height in inches.

## Limitations

While this calculator provides an estimate of the ramp length, there are other factors to consider:

- Local building codes and regulations which might specify minimum or maximum slope ratios.
- Surface materials and conditions which could impact safety and usability.
- The user’s specific requirements, such as ease of use for individuals with different levels of mobility.

Always consult with a professional engineer or builder to confirm the requirements and specifications for your specific situation.
