Ramp Widths
Dimensioned drawing measuring the minimum widths and clearances of an ADA ramp

ADA accessible ramps must maintain a minimum clear width of 36” | 91.4 cm at all times. The cross slope along the width of any ramp must be less than 1:50 | < 2%. The 36” | 91.4 cm clear width must be maintained between all including handrails. Ramp surfaces should constructed as slip-resistant, stable, and firm systems.

Ramp - Switchback

Switchback ramps are accessible ramps designed with a 180° change of direction along the accessible route. The landings of switchback ramps must maintain consistent minimum widths and depths of 60” | 152.4 cm along the entire change of direction running parallel to the ramp run. The inner handrail of a switchback ramp must remain continuous. Landings with minimum lengths of 60” | 152.4 cm and widths consistent to the width of the ramp must be provided at the top and bottom of any straight run portions of the switchback ramp.

Ramp Slopes
Diagram drawing measuring ADA ramp slopes dimensioned for accessibility

A ramp is comprised of horizontal sloped runs connected by level landings between runs. Any slope greater than 1:20 and less than 1:12 along an accessible route shall be considered a ramp that is required to comply with ADA accessibility codes and compliances. The least possible slope should be used whenever possible. The maximum allowable slope in any new construction is 1:12 with a maximum rise of 30” | 76.2 cm without a landing. A ramp with a slope between 1:12 and 1:16 can have a maximum horizontal length of 30’ | 9.14 m without a landing. A ramp with a slope between 1:16 and 1:20 can have a horizontal run up to 40’ | 12.19 m before requiring a landing.

Ramp Handrails - Utility

Utility ramp handrails are common all-in-one safety components used along any accessible ramp that typically provide user assistance and protection from falling off a ramp. As free-standing elements, utliity handrails must double as both an assistive handrail and a guardrail that prevents users from accessing the edge of the ramp. For edge protection, utility handrails must include either curbs or barriers at a minimum of 4” | 10.2 cm high along the ramp edge, or an integrated parallel bar at the bottom of the handrail that would restrict the passage of a 4” | 10.2 cm diameter sphere.

Handrails along both sides of a ramp are required on any ramp system with a rise greater than 6” | 15.2 cm or a horizontal run greater than 72” | 182.9 cm. The top grippable surface of any ramp handrail must be set at a height between 34”-38” | 86.4-96.5 cm above the ramp surface and a minimum clear width of 36” | 91.4 cm must be provided between handrails. In situations where a handrail is not continuous, handrails must extend at least another 12” | 30.5 cm parallel to the flat surface of the ramp landing. Inner handrails on a switchback or turned ramp must always be continuous. The ends of any handrail should be rounded or returned smoothly to the floor, wall, or post.

Ramp Handrails - Wall

Wall mounted ramp handrails are handrails used along any accessible ramp that is comprised of walls on one or either side of the run. Curbs are not required if the walls are continuously connected to the ramp surface.

Handrails along both sides of a ramp are required on any ramp system with a rise greater than 6” | 15.2 cm or a horizontal run greater than 72” | 182.9 cm. The top grippable surface of any ramp handrail must be set at a height between 34”-38” | 86.4-96.5 cm above the ramp surface and a minimum clear width of 36” | 91.4 cm must be provided between handrails. When handrails are attached to a wall, an offset gap of at least 1.5” | 3.8 cm must be continuously maintained between the handrail and the wall surface. In situations where a handrail is not continuous, handrails must extend at least another 12” | 30.5 cm parallel to the flat surface of the ramp landing. Inner handrails on a switchback or turned ramp must always be continuous.
