Ramp With Midrail, Wokingham Station

IMPROVING ACCESSIBILITY DURING GATELINE ENABLING WORKS

Application
Commercial
Location
Wokingham, Berkshire
Service Package
Rapid Rental

REQUIREMENT:

A temporary ramp with midrail to the station while major improvement works were underway.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

CAD and technical drawings were drawn up; based off measurements and photos taken by our site surveyor.

Drawings are designed to allow customers to visualise how a ramp would appear in situ.

END RESULT:

A yellow powder-coated Rapid Ramp was installed wiith mid rail. 

FEATURES INCLUDED:

  • Mesh Platform - self-draining mesh allows water to pass through rather than collect on the surface.
  • Trombone Ends - these are added to the ends of a Rapid Ramp to prevent clothes catching.
  • Telescopic Legs - these can be adjusted to accommodate different threshold heights.
  • Continuous handrail - this handrail system ensures users always have support to hold onto.


EXTRA FEATURES INCLUDED:

  • Step Unit – an ideal addition to any ramp installation, providing the access needed for able-bodied users. They can also be stand-alone units, independent of the Rapid Ramp System. 
  • Yellow powder-coated finish - Rapid Ramp comes in black as standard, but you can choose a colour to match your requirement, all we require is your RAL colour number. 
  • Mid Rail -  A lower handrail system designed to be used by young children and wheelchair users.    
  • Yellow Tread - this is a safety feature designed to help those with impaired vision identify the nose of the ramp. Additionally, it helps users to distinguish any level changes.

IS INTERMEDIATE HANDRAIL A REQUIREMENT OF THE BUILDING REGULATIONS?

In Document M of the Building Regulations, it simply states ‘if you provide a secondary (lower) handrail’, meaning that the handrail system is not obligatory.  

 

If the client requires it, then the handrail should be 600mm from the surface of the ramp.
