Construction Notes:

  1. Cut joists and end pieces to length and assemble on flat surface. Space joists 16" apart on center.
  2. Screw end pieces to the ends of joists with 3" screws.
  3. Insure landing is square and nail on joist hangers.
  4. Bend outside flange of four corner joist hangers flat against end pieces of landing.
  5. Decking may be attached at this point or after landing frame is placed in a ramp. Decking adds significant weight to landing. If decking added, you will need to remove decking end pieces when assembling ramp.
  6. 3/8" holes to allow connection to ramp modules will be drilled at time of ramp construction.
