• Guardrails must be at least 1100 mm height. This parameter is measured vertically from the ground level, to the highest point of the guardrail.
  • The guardrails must have sufficient strength and stiffness to withstand a horizontal uniformly distributed force of 3.0 kN/m.
  • The guardrails cannot be easily climbable.
  • Openings on guardrails shall not allow a 100 mm diameter sphere to pass through.
  • When guardrails are installed to protect slopes, they must have a continuous base in their entire length from the floor surface to a minimum height of 100 mm.

Glossary of Terms

Tactile pavements are textured surfaces with contrasted colour that are perceptible and identifiable by feel or cane or residual functional vision that warns or informs people with visual disabilities.

Truncated domes in a grid pattern to provide a tactile surface under feet of blind users. They are used as a used as a warning of upcoming level changes or obstacles on the course of travel.

Flat topped elongated bars in the paving surface under feet of blind people. They are used as a directional sign to assist the independent mobility of people with visual disabilities.

Pendulum test value (PTV) is a measurement of the slip resistance of a floor surface, either an external or internal floor of a building. The least slip resistance a surface material is, the more likely people may skid or trip, especially in wet conditions. In average circumstances, slip-resistance is as follows:

0-18 = very low slip-resistance.

18-25 = moderate slip-resistance.

25-36 = good slip resistance.

Light Reflectance Value (LRV) is a numeric scale that is used to identify how much light a colour reflects or absorbs. It is used in universal design to identify the contrast between two colours. This can help to determine if there is sufficient contrast to visually identify a feature such as a fonts on a sign, elevator call button, a handrail and other items which need to be seen by visually impaired people.
