Description
Description

Wall mounted ramp handrails are handrails used along any accessible ramp that is comprised of walls on one or either side of the run. Wall mounted ramp handrails provide support and stability to individuals walking up or down the ramp. These handrails typically consist of a sturdy, durable material such as metal or stainless steel and are securely attached to the wall with brackets. The height and placement of the handrails are typically determined by local building codes and accessibility guidelines to ensure safety and accessibility for all users. Curbs are not required if the walls are continuously connected to the ramp surface.

Dimensions & Sizes
Dimensions & Sizes

The Ramp (Handrails Wall) has an overall combined height of 4.17’ (127 cm), total length of 22.33’ (6.81 m), and width of 49.5” (125.7 cm). Dimensions will vary based on the desired slope and height needed. When handrails are attached to a wall, an offset gap of at least 1.5” (3.8 cm) must be continuously maintained between the handrail and the wall surface. In situations where a handrail is not continuous, handrails must extend at least another 12” (30.5 cm) parallel to the flat surface of the ramp landing. Handrails along both sides of a ramp are required on any ramp system with a rise greater than 6” (15.2 cm) or a horizontal run greater than 72” (182.9 cm). The top grippable surface of any ramp handrail must be set at a height between 34”-38” (86.4-96.5 cm) above the ramp surface and a minimum clear width of 36” (91.4 cm) must be provided between handrails. Inner handrails on a switchback or turned ramp must always be continuous.

ADA accessible ramps must maintain a minimum clear width of 36” (91.4 cm) at all times. The cross slope along the width of any ramp must be less than 1:50 or <2%. The 36” (91.4 cm) clear width must be maintained between all including handrails.

The maximum allowable slope in any new construction is 1:12 with a maximum rise of 30” (76.2 cm) without a landing. A ramp with a slope between 1:12 and 1:16 can have a maximum horizontal length of 30’ (9.14 m) without a landing. A ramp with a slope between 1:16 and 1:20 can have a horizontal run up to 40’ (12.19 m) before requiring a landing.

Common Questions
Common Questions
How much space should be provided between a handrail and a wall?
A gap of at least 1.5” (38 mm) must be maintained between a handrail and a wall.
What is the height of a ramp handrail?

Ramp handrails should have their top surfaces set between 34”-38” (86.4-96.5 cm) above the ramp surface.
How far must non-continuous handrails extend at landings?
If handrails are not continuous they must extend at least another 12” (30.5 cm) parallel to the flat surface of the ramp landing.

Ramps are inclined surfaces that join different levels of a space. Commonly used at the entrances of buildings to accommodate level changes, ramps provide building access to wheelchair users. The maximum slope of a ramp is calculated to provide comfortable and easy access to the building.
