The stepped access shown satisfies Building Regulations as it includes:
- A 'corduroy' hazard warning surface provided at top and bottom landings to give advance warning of a change in level.
- Nosings which are made apparent by means of a permanently contrasting material 55mm wide on both the tread and the riser.
Alispar™ nosings and treads are designed to take heavy foot traffic and are suitable for use on external stairs where a high degree of slip resistance is required even in wet conditions. Suitable for footbridges, subways schools high rise housing blocks.
MagmaTac™ is a moulded flexible tactile paving tile designed to alert visually impaired pedestrians to potential hazards. It is easy and quick to lay on most surfaces and compliant with DETR and DDA guidelines.
The ramped access shown satisfies Building Regulations as it includes:
- A surface width between walls, upstands or kerbs of at least 1.5m.
- A ramp surface which is slip resistant, especially when wet, and is of a colour that contrasts visually with that of the landings.
