Elimination of architectural barriers

In many buildings, the elevator access on the ground floor is above street level. This is because by raising the level of the hallway, the elevator pit could be made more easily. A project of descent to ground level, allows to save the stairs of the hall for people with reduced mobility. The following adaptation measures are usually carried out in the reform of the hallway:

  • Lowering of the elevator access reducing the depth of the pit.
  • Installation of ramps
  • Stair lift installation

The ramps to be installed must comply with the Technical Building Code (CTE), specifically DB SUA 9, regarding ACCESSIBILITY. At most the following slopes can be used.

  • Ramp length <3m: Slope 10%
  • Ramp length <6m: Slope 8%
  • Ramp length> 6m: Slope 6%

It is drawn up in order to obtain the building license from the City Council. If necessary, structural calculations of elements to be modified are carried out. Once the license is obtained, the work can be carried out.
