5ft Tall ELITE RAMP

With a 1.2m, 1.8m or 2.4m wide 6ft extension.

This ramp is for the skater that is keen for the best of the best ramps. It’s the biggest, fastest and the most exciting in our standard ramps range and is the ultimate ramp for those who have the space and budget. It comes in two different widths: 4.8m wide and 6m wide. The 4.8m wide version includes a 6ft extension that is 1.2m wide. The 6m wide version of this ramp comes with the option of having a 1.2m, 1.8m or 2.4m wide 6ft extension. 

THIS IS THE ULTIMATE BACKYARD HALFPIPE SETUP

Price

5ft tall x 4.8m wide x 9.9m long is R118,745   (Includes a 1.2m wide 6ft extension)
5ft tall x 6.0m wide x 9.9m long is R149,545 (Includes your choice of 6ft extension width: 1,2m or 1.8m or 2.4m)

Which size is best? Wider is always more fun as you can extend your grinds for longer and have more space for maneuvering. But it’s all personal preference and one must take space and budget into account.

The prices quoted above are if no extras are needed. There are 3 types of extras that are common:

 

  1. A balustrade *hand railings on the top decks of the ramp (For the 4.8m wide ramps – R5490. For the 6.0m wide R6490)
  2. Capping off the back ends of the ramp, mostly for aesthetics and sound reduction (For 3.6m wide R4890. For 2.4m wide R5890)
  3. If a level foundation needs to be built (Approx R8000 to R20 000 totally depending on the site, could be more or less)

Balustrade  (Hand railings on the top decks of the ramp)

Price 

For the 4.8m wide ramps – R5490
For the 6.0m wide ramps – R6490

Balustrades are a personal preference. Once you go higher than a 4ft miniramp then it is recommended. If the ramp is built on a slope with a foundation then the one side will definitely need a balustrade. 

Capping off the Ends

Capping off the back ends of a halfpipe is mostly for aesthetics, it just looks a bit prettier. It also reduces sound levels. We use a lovely charcoal colour than contrasts beautifully with the deep wood colours of the rest of the ramp.

For 4.8m wide halfpipes it is R4890

For 6.0m wide halfpipes it is R5890

Building a Level Foundation

For example, we need a relatively flat piece of ground to build on. We build on small concert blocks and need a somewhat level surface in order to use the block technique.

However if you have a heavy sloping yard that is not a problem! We will build a foundation on top of which will sit the miniramp. So for example if one side of the slope is 1.5m higher than the other side of the slope, the added cost to make the level foundation would probably be between R8000 and R20 000, depending on the option of ramp you have chosen and the site. It could be less or more.

For piece of mind, we place the foundation on concrete garden slabs that measure about 35cm x35cm x 5cm thick. We do not dig up your garden and concrete the foundation permanently in the ground. This allows for the miniramp to one day be disassembled and moved if need be. Then you are not left with a permanently installed foundation, you can simply carry the concrete slabs away and rake over the ground.

If you prefer a permanently ”dug in” foundation we are also happy to do that, the pricing will be a bit more.
