Guidance for Designing

Gangways for the disabled

Weland´s technical department is available for advice regarding dimensioning as well as the production of layout drawings and designs of different Weland products.



Summary of the Construction Rules issued by the Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning, BBR 3:122, 3:123, 8:2321 and Building to Overcome Handicap (supplement to BBR)

 

Access to building

At least one entrance to a building must be available for people with reduced ability to move, arranged and designed in a way that it can be used by such people.

General Advice

The gangway should: Be horizontal or inclined max-imum 1:12 between at least 2 m long rest landings, have a difference in height of maximum 0.5 metre between the rest landings and minimum 1.3 metres width. In certain cases, e.g. when adapted individually, a narrower gangway could be accepted.

Entrance and communication areas

Gangways in premises or connecting routes should have a maximum incline of 1:12 and a maximum height difference of 0.5 metres between at least 2 metre long rest landings.

As a gangway, according to the provisions, should take up a height difference of max. 0.5 metres, a gangway that has an incline of 1:12 should be at most 6 metres long. A level difference of more than 0.5 metres must be divided between two gangways with an intermediate rest landing.

Railing and Handrail

Gangways not bordered by walls must have railings to reduce the risk for personal injuries. Gangways at higher level than 0.5 metres must have handrails or similar on both sides.


Example of gangways with landings/rest landings

Example 1

Gangways with landing 90°, no adjacent walls.



Example 2

Gangways with landing 90°, one side of landing fixed to wall.



Example 3

Gangways with landings 180°, no adjacent walls.



Example 4

Gangways at height exceeding 0.5 m supplied with 2 m long intermediate landing, then proceeding forward. Landing can be fixed to wall.
