|Vertical height to the top of the upper handrail from pitch line of the surface of a ramp. or flight of steps is between 900mm and 1000mm .
|| Place handrail between 900mm and 1000mm from the pitch line of surface.
| The clearance between the handrail and any adjacent wall surface is between 60mm and 75mm.
|| The handrail and any wall or other surface adjacent to it needs to be free of anything sharp or abrasive
|The handrail is continuous across the flights and landings of ramped or stepped access.
||Use internal couplings, Type 514-7, to maintain continuity
|Post and handrail tube need to be between 40-50mm in diameter
||The handrail and uprights used for Kee Access is size (42.4mm OD) and (48.3mmOD) respectively.
|Handrail shall not rotate within the fittings.
||Handrail are riveted or screwed to the handrail bracket which prevents rotation.
|The handrail is slip resistant and not cold to touch
||Handrail to be polyester powder coated or equivalent coating to make it contrast visually with the background against which it is seen
|The handrail to extend at least 300mm beyond the top and bottom of a ramped access, or the top and bottom nosing of a flight or flights of steps, while not projecting into an access route.
||Do consider where possible, extending rail runs past the minimum requirements (ie.300mm overshoot) especially when dealing with closed loop systems.
