澳洲Australia property Maximum entry ramp angle ??? | Sydney


在澳大利亚 I need some advice regarding a property purchase. Property - semi-detached house Bedrooms - 2 Condition - average needs internal reno to modernise Street - one of the best in suburb Location - excellent Close to schools - yes Transport - 50m The pool at of an IP needs to be resurfaced (or so the pool doctor says), the cost was estimated to be $10K ($10,000), after recoverying from my impresssion of a cat coughing up a fur ball, it just seems far too much. Its just a standard poo


Hi all. Quick question.

One of my good tenants has just had a hip replacement and now steps are not an option.
I am considering buiding ramps for her. The front door ramp will have a 6 to 1 fall while the back will have a 5.5 to 1 fall. Does anybody know what the max fall angle is for nsw.

I know disabled ramps are around 12 to 1 but this does not have to meet this requirement.

Any ideas ??

You should check with your local council as most are different.
I think I would try and comply with council requirements in case someone
takes a tumble , and your insurance company wipes you.

Access ramps for new buildings require 1:14 gradient, as per Australian Standards (ref below).

AS 1428.1—2001. Australian Standard. Design for access and mobility. Part 1: General requirements for access - new building work. Sydney, Australia; 2001:8-10.


As for ramps in the backyard? I don't think there is a maximum gradient specifically other than the Aust Standard I've quoted. I've seen many steep ramps in homes and I guess it depends on the space you have to play with.

Obviously the gentler the gradient you can get, the better for your tenant. And a handrail would be a good idea too. I guess a steep ramp is better than no ramp!

I had a read of as some time back and to me it is a requirement to meet mobility/disability limitations like wheel chair axess.
I want a ramp that to help assist. Not necesarrily meet disability guidelines. There must be a max gradient allowable for non disabled people.
I'm still waiting for councils reply. Ski-bum said: ↑
