This tool calculates the slope of a wheelchair ramp to ensure accessibility and safety.

**Explanation:**

This wheelchair ramp slope calculator helps you determine the necessary length of the ramp based on the height of the rise and the desired slope ratio.

**How to use it:**

- Enter the height of the rise in inches.
- Enter the desired slope ratio in the format X:Y. The standard ADA recommended slope ratio is 1:12.
- Click on “Calculate” to determine the required ramp length in feet.
- The result will be displayed in the disabled result field.

**How it calculates:**

The calculator takes the height of the rise and divides it by the ratio provided (X part) to calculate the ramp length in inches. The result is then converted to feet for practicality.

**Limitations:**

This calculator assumes a straight ramp without any turns or landings. For ramps with turns or landings, additional length will be needed. Moreover, local codes might have specific requirements that need to be considered in addition to this calculation.
