In accordance with AS1428.1-2009 Clause 10.3 (f), ramps that intersect at a property boundary need to be set back by a minimum of 900mm so that the handrail (compliant to Clause 12) and TGSI’s do not protrude into the transverse path of travel.

As shown in the plan & section view below, the Moddex Assistrail AR20 has been designed in to show that it fits within the 900mm minimum.
