Case Study – Ramp Installation for Southwest Airlines in PHL


National Seating & Mobility is an established supplier of quality custom, modular as well as portable ramps for residential and commercial settings. We successfully installed a custom-designed commercial ramp for the commercial freight center of Southwest Airlines at the Philadelphia Airport. Southwest Airlines is a major U.S. airline and the world’s largest low-cost carrier.


The PHL cargo center at the Philadelphia airport needed a commercial access ramp that would meet all local regulations. The center focuses on effortless shipping with fast, efficient service.

With major alterations being made to the interior of the cargo terminal, the requirement was that ADA accessibility be included in the design. The ramp we installed had to be ADA-compliant and innovative.


With over 11 years of experience in the industry, our technicians were able to successfully install a custom designed commercial ramp for the freight center. Features of this specific ramp are:

  • 54” wide ramp surface, allowing for a full 48” between the inner handrails as required
  • Double continuous tubular handrails spaced at 10 3/4”
  • 42” high railings, which have 4” on center pickets
  • The ramp supports are under the ramp and are designed to bolt to concrete footings.
