A) Railing: Railing must be a continuous smooth surface. A railing must be on both sides of ramp or stairs.


B) Railing Height: Railing must be 34”- 38” in height.


C) Edge Protection: When there is a drop off, ramps require a curb or curb rail to prevent wheel chairs from slipping out from under the railing. In some cases a mid-rail is sufficient to provide this protection.


D) Clearance: A ramp must have a minimum clear width of 36".


E) D Returns: Railing ends need to be rounded or return smoothly into a floor, wall or post.


F) Edge Protection: When there is a drop off, ramps require a curb or curb rail to prevent wheel chairs from slipping out from under the railing. In some cases a mid-rail is sufficient to provide this protection.
