perceptible floor slopes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
David,

A reference from which you can obtain slope information is the American
with Disabilities Act (A.D.A.). This reference has several sections
pertaining to allowable slope for path of travel. However you should also
compare this National requirement with State and Local ADA requirements to
ensure that they do not supercede it.

Other sources for this type information may be "Parking Design" references.
As in the previous source you still would need to compare these allowable
slopes with that of all building codes that apply.
