Cy Plan 120 Lecture 8 Wednesday's guest speaker, Mark Smith, is a certified access specialist with the Division of the State Architect office. His complete Power Point presentation is on our bSpace site for this class. He really followed the Power Point to a 'T' - he didn't deviate from it much, if any. A few random things I wrote down that may not be in the slides: * For paths of travel, federal law states 3' minimum, California law states 4'. * 2% slope equates to 1/4" per 48" * Curb cuts must be 1:12 slope max = 8.33% * Guard rails are required for surfaces with 30" (or more) drops * Cane zone = anything protruding from a wall/pole. .. more than 4" into 'walking space' must be within the cane zone (27" from the ground up) so blind individuals will detect it with their cane. * 'Sidewalks' are different than 'walks'. Sidewalks are adjacent to roads and cannot be held to slope/railing regulations (ie: SF sidewalks!). However, walks (ie: paths of travel around campus) must adhere to slope maximums, railing requirements, etc. .. * For paths of travel, after every 30" of rise, there must be a flat (max 2% slope) landing
