The requirements in the disabled access code AS1428 states that there are paths of travel suitable and accessible for disabled persons in building entries. Individuals in Wheelchairs or wheeled mobility equipment require a ramp when an edge becomes more than 3 mm high and in some cases 5 mm high. (See applicable standards)
Our Nova Ramps are custom made to suit the Australian standard for slip resistance, luminescent contrast and correct angles.
Typically located at a door with a maximum rise of 34.5mm. The suggested gradient-angle is 1 in 8 with a maximum inclined surface length of 279mm. Kerbs, landings/rails are normally not required.
Steps at entries to commercial premises create access issues for individuals who use wheelchairs and for individuals with other disabilities, who have difficulties walking along their intended path of travel.
