As an important barrier free device, protective handrails often make mistakes in equipment planning, resulting in users being unable to use them normally or being extremely inconvenient to use. What are the problems and how can they be avoided? The manufacturer of protective handrails will analyze for you:
In terms of obstacle free ramp production, there are some obstacle free ramps with excessively high slopes; Many accessible ramps do not have safety barriers installed on their free surfaces; The height and standard of ramp handrails also do not meet the requirements of the rules, and most of them are only equipped with single-sided aisle handrails; The spacing between the starting and ending horizontal extension of the protective handrail is too small, and the width of some ramps and the length of the rest platform are both smaller than the rule requirements.
In terms of accessible bathroom equipment: Currently, the common standards for accessible toilet spaces cannot meet the needs of use. There is no door closing handle installed on the door leaf, and there is no enough space for wheelchair rotation in front of accessible toilet spaces, urinals, and washbasins. The common problem in accessible toilets and accessible restrooms is the lack of protective handrails or inadequate equipment standards.
Due to the insufficient depth of obstacle free planning nowadays, many structural requirements are not indicated in practical planning, which often leads to omissions and mistakes after construction.
If the size standards for obstacle free ramps, safety barriers, protective handrails, and bathroom door closing handles can be detailed in the instructions, it will greatly reduce unnecessary mistakes during the construction process.
In the work of improving the accessibility distribution of existing urban roads and public facilities, planners must combine practical conditions and follow rules to carry out accessibility planning. At the same time, they must also increase the management of construction quality, striving to achieve the integration of each renovation.
