Weatherproofing your Ramp - OC Ramps

Weatherproofing your Ramp

We always have a ton of questions on ways to protect your ramp.

Below are some of the best suggestions & solutions that are current to help protect your investment!
While making your huge & thoughtful decision on purchasing any size mini ramp/obstacles, the common question is….

“How will it hold up in weather?”

Although we use all high quality materials & imported plywood from around the world at the end of the day, it’s still wood. Over time without any protection your investment will start to rot & take on additional moisture which can shrink & or swell the pieces of plywood.

1.) Heavy Duty Tarp –
You can purchase these at any local hardware store anywhere from $20 & up.

Make sure you find one that fits your ENTIRE ramp/obstacle.
