Protruding Objects

Thursday, January 7, 2016

Protruding objects provisions (Sections 204 and 307 (F307)) in the standards, limit the projection of objects into circulation paths to prevent hazards to people with vision impairments. These requirements apply to all circulation paths and are not limited to accessible routes. Circulation paths include interior and exterior walks, paths, hallways, courtyards, elevators, platform lifts, ramps, stairways, and landings. This session will address more frequently asked questions about protruding objects such as post-mounted objects, drinking fountains, and more.
