Ramp 4.1 Alternate - Questions, Door location changed

Postby shar.ak » Fri Mar 16, 2018 3:36 pm

Hi All,

Could you please review and comment? Please ignore the original location of the door. I drew the ramp considering the wall/door is moved to the south side of the space.

Question: do I need the railing to wrap the entire landing at 8", especially since part of the landing is higher than the adjacent levels (bottom of the stair)? I think I do (per code requirements as well), but in that case I wouldn't be able to obtain a clear 60" circle. Any ideas/suggestions for tackling this? Should I just turn the ramp 90 degree again at the 8" landing and extend the width of the landing to be more than 5' to accommodate the 60" circle?

Thank you,
A

You need rail until adjacent surface is at or above the ramp/landing level. In this case, to the 2nd riser.

I think I do (per code requirements as well), but in that case I wouldn't be able to obtain a clear 60" circle.

That landing doesn't require a clear circle.

Thanks Coach.

I am attaching the revised version.

Regarding the 60" clear circle at that landing -- I want to make sure I interpret this correctly -- 60" clear circle is required only for maneuvering, and making a 90 degree turn does not classify as maneuvering?

"The space required for a wheelchair to make a 180-degree turn is a clear space of 60 inches in diameter"
