What thickness are these ramps? What is the weight capacity?

The weight capacity of these ramps is 60kg. We rely on the Door Threshold to take most of the weight, the ramp itself with have rubber struts to prevent it slipping and moving when in use. We currently manufacture in 2mm, this means if not used correctly the 2mm Thickness will bend however, if used on a threshold this thickness will be sufficient
