Section 81

  1. Ramps when provided shall be so located as to be easily visible to the users.
  2. The slope of the ramps should be such as to facilitate climbing without undue strain, but not steeper than 1:6, at the same time it should not cause the user to exert unnecessarily for climbing down.
  3. The surface of the ramp should be made reasonably skid proof either by a suitable pattern cast in situ in floor finish or by the use of chequered tiles.
  4. All ramps shall be provided with a parapet at least 800 mm high or a suitable hand-rail of the same height to prevent inadvertent falling of the users.
