The handrail setting of disabled passage shall refer to the code for design of barrier free facilities and disabled ramp.
The handrail of disabled passage is generally installed on the edge ramp, ramp stairs, crosswalk and other places, which is a kind of barrier free facility. Barrier free facilities refer to the supporting service facilities built to ensure the safety and convenient use of the disabled, the elderly, pregnant women, children and other members of society.
Curb ramp ramp shall be set at the intersection of sidewalk, block intersection, unit exit, square entrance, pedestrian crossing, bridge, tunnel, grade separation intersection, etc. The lower opening of the curb ramp shall not be 2cm higher than the bottom slab of the roadway. Handrails for disabled passage can be set on both sides according to the situation.
Ramps and stairs - wheelchair ramps and safety stairs shall be provided for pedestrian bridges and pedestrian overpasses in urban main roads, buildings and residential areas; handrails for disabled access shall be provided on both sides of ramps and stairs. In the central area of the city, vertical elevators can be installed instead of wheelchair ramps, and handrails for the disabled can be installed in the elevators.
Blind roads shall be set up for roads, squares, pedestrian streets, commercial streets, bridges, tunnels, interchanges, sidewalks, etc. in the main construction areas of the city center; warning blind roads shall be set up for pedestrian overpasses, pedestrian overpasses, pedestrian overpasses, and bus terminals. Handrails for the disabled shall be set on the wall of the passage.
On urban roads, blind roads are built for the convenience of blind people, and curb ramps are built for the convenience of wheelchair disabled people. In terms of architecture, many ramps have been built in large public buildings for the disabled and the elderly to enter the room from the outside, and accessible facilities (stairs, elevators, telephones, toilets, handrails, wheelchair seats, guest rooms, etc.) have been provided.
However, compared with the needs of disabled people and the situation of developed countries and regions, the construction of barrier free facilities in China is still relatively backward and far behind. Generally speaking, the accessibility design code in China has not been well implemented.
