Ramp - Turning

Turned ramps are accessible ramps designed with a 90° change of direction along the accessible route. The landings of turning ramps must have minimum widths and lengths of 60” | 152.4 cm in both directions at the moment that the turn occurs. The size of these landings provides adequate mobility for a wheelchair user to comfortably rotate according to the change in direction. The inner handrail along a turning 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 turned ramp.
