Sample Question - Barrier Removal

Postby standard » Wed Apr 12, 2017 9:59 pm

Sample question from CASp handbook - what do you think?:

A qualified historical building in California undergoing barrier removal cannot accommodate a ramp with a 1:12 slope to access the main entry. The California Historical Building Code permits a ramp with a slope of 1:10 for a maximum horizontal distance of 5 feet, provided that:

a. an international symbol of accessibility is posted at the ramp.

b. signs are posted at the upper and lower levels indicating the steepness of the slope.

c. directional signs indicating the location of an alternate accessible entrance is provided.

d. a call button is installed at the bottom of the ramp for individuals requiring assistance.

Looks like the answer is "b"

I'm thinking of this as if i was on the freeway and there are signs stating the down slope and how you should reduce speeds....with that in mind, i would think it would be "B".

"a" does nothing as it doesn't warn that a certain portion of the ramp is slightly more steep.

"c" doesn't seem like an answer as this is the only place to access the main entry.

"d" is just silly.....what if nobody is there.

I'm curious to know the correct answer.

Yes the answer is B. Your reasoning is sound.
