DESCRIPTION SUMMARY LEARNING OBJECTIVES typically 5 hours for the full seminar, 4 hours (eliminating elevators & lifts)
Stepping Thru Vertical Heights
For someone who has a disability or is elderly, ascending or descending across levels is a key mobility challenge. We often address this by providing an element such as a ramp or elevator that takes people from one level to another but often these features alone do not solve the problem. We will look at options such as sloped walkways, curb ramps, pedestrian ramps, elevators, and lifts. We will also examine the parameters and requirements for each of these elements, as well as how to design and situate them for optimum access.
Since the world is not ﬂat, most buildings and facilities have some height change which can provide a challenge for access — we will review the different methods of access and the parameters for each.
