Frequently Asked Questions

If your question isn’t answered below please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

I hate DIY, can you build it for me?

Yes we can! – If you are not the handy type, why not let the SB Skate Ramp team come and take care of your ramp build We build around 1 in every 20 ramp kits we sell. Using our own team of experienced ramp builders, who are all employed by us, we can have most kits built in a day or two.

We currently offer the build service in mainland UK. We offer two levels of build

1. Structural Only builds from £990

This option includes construction of the base timber sections, the transition pods, the platforms, support posts and handrails. It would leave you with a fully constructed structural ramp which only needs the riding surface sheet material to be installed to complete. (This means installing typically 8 sheets of 8′ x 4′ plywood, 9 mm thick, onto the structure) This option is aimed at those customers who want the bulk of the work done, but are happy to put the finishing touches to the structure and claim the glory from the kids!  (excludes kit cost & delivery)

2. Full builds from £1350

This is as option 1. Plus we will also install the riding service sheet material for you, so that the ramp is ready to ride when we leave. This option usually pushes us into an additional day on site, hence the increase in cost. (excludes kit cost & delivery)

What's not included in the half pipe (single or double) kit?

We don’t supply tools or equipment, electric screwdriver/drill etc, which you’ll need to build your Half Pipe.

We don’t stock or supply sheets of 9mm standard plywood. The 8’ x 4’ sheets of exterior grade plywood, are readily available at any local timber merchants and are usually priced at around £16 each. You will receive guidance on this when your order is confirmed. Full step-by-step build instructions are included in your order. The kit is totally complete except for just these sheets.

There is an option to add an upgraded Birch riding surface from us when you order your half pipe single/double ramp kit.

.

What ground surface should I build my half pipe ramp on?

Half pipes can placed on firm well-drained lawns, compacted gravel, tarmac or solid concrete. The surface needs to be roughly level. If your site isn’t level & flat its advised to add our foundation plan to your order.

What ground surface should I build my quarter pipe ramp on?

Quarter pipes need to be placed over a hard surface such as concrete or tarmac as this is used as the riding surface. Fortunately, the quarter pipes are mobile and can be moved in and out of the garage, driveway or street.

How long does it take to receive my order?

Around 2-3 weeks from order to delivery. There can be a longer lead in time in peak season but if you need it quick, tell us and we’ll advise if we can meet your required date.

My son/daughter is new to skating, how do I know which ramp to buy?

Confidence and skill levels build quickly when you are on your own ramp. Our customers don’t spend an age waiting for a turn on the ramps at the skate park!

Even young children quickly gain confidence and ability by just spending time on the ramp. With this in mind, its good to give them a ramp that is both fun but challenging, which will hold their interest. A 4′ high half pipe is therefore a great option for all ages.

Do the ramps need any kind of treatment if going outside?

The structural spars, joists, posts and handrails are made from treated timber so do not require any further treatment. However we strongly recommend that you treat the plywood components with an exterior grade wood preservative to prolong the life and looks of the ramp. In the build instructions, there is a section on treatment which includes the product we recommend.
