Check the Architectural Standards.
Also consider snow, ice, rain on the ramp.
Will the forklift turn on the ramp? Danger if it has to and you will want
little or no slope in the turning area.

People will also walk up those ramps.  I think this will control your ramp
slope to 1:12 max.

I'm interested in what others have to say on this.
