The ARC Pro Series equipment, which has been a favorite for municipalities around the country, is now even better. Beginning in 2008, ARC will now use galvanized steel for all the ramp surfaces before they are powder coated. This extra step will ensure that the Pro Series will offer the ultimate in corrosion protection. For your skatepark needs, skater-owned and -operated American Ramp Company is a name to trust.
