In accordance with AS1428.1-2009 Clause 10.3 (g), ramps that intersect at an internal corridor need to be set back by a minimum of 400mm so that the handrail (compliant to Clause 12) does not protrude into the transverse path of travel.

As shown in the plan & section view below, Moddex recommends a set back distance of 450mm minimum to allow for our Assistrail closure bends.
