What are the Australian standards for kerb ramps?
The Australian standards for kerb ramps are outlined in the AS 1428.1:2021, focusing on design for access and mobility. According to these standards, kerb ramps should have a gradient between 1:8 and 1:14, with a width of at least 1 metre. Additionally, a landing area of 1.2 metres in length and width should be provided at the top and bottom of the ramp. Tactile ground surface indicators (TGSIs) are required to assist vision-impaired individuals in safely navigating the ramp. Lastly, the ramps should be slip-resistant and have contrasting colours for easy identification. Following these guidelines ensures that kerb ramps are accessible and safe for all users, including those with disabilities. Barrier Group products are designed to comply with these Australian standards, providing reliable and efficient solutions for kerb ramp installations.
