    Question Ramp specifications - rise/run/rest spots

    I'm in a radio control car club...we have a drivers stand 8 feet high...trying to figure out how to build a ramp for it...

    Can ramps still legally be built at 1:10 or do they need to be 1:12?

    And is 30 feet of run the absolute max or can you stretch that a tad?

    Because 1:10 with 2 40 foot runs to do 80ft total is ok........ 1:12, 96ft overal with 30 foot max spans is a fucking maze of a mess even me the guy in the chair is looking at thinking "Thats fucked up"

    Here's the link for the complete ADA guidelines for accessability. http://www.access-board.gov/adaag/html/adaag.htm It will tell not only what the specs for accessability are but what facilities need to be accessable.

    Section 4.8 applies to ramps and there are exceptions allowed, which are spelled out in the appendix.

    These of course for American facilities, but are a good rule of thumb for anyone..

    You might want to think about a vertical lift, too.

    Some info ...

    Since you are in Canada specifications, codes and laws are different than in the United States of America.

    Over here we use the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility Guidelines for Building and Facilities also known as ADAAG.

    See page 31 of the attached pdf (inside the pdf). There is where ramps starts and landings requirements are.
