How can I create an accessibility ramp?
Creating a ramp with handrails and a landing is easy to accomplish in Chief Architect using the Ramp tool, which behaves much like the stair tools in the software.
Before ramps are created, make sure that the heights for what they are referencing are already set correctly.
For example, if they are going to be between two rooms on the same floor where there is a change in the floor height, make sure that these values are set prior to creating the ramp. The same is true of making sure that the terrain and deck are set correctly for an outdoor ramps.
Ramps are drawn going UP, so they should be drawn from the lower of the two things that they connect, such as from the lower floor height, or from the terrain up to the deck.
By default, ramps are drawn at a 1:12 slope to a maximum height of 30" (760 mm).
If you use a single click to place a ramp, instead of using the click and drag method, then its Top Height will be set at the default of 30", the maximum height that a ramp can be before needing to have a landing in between it and the next ramp section. You can uncheck Automatic Heights to adjust this value.
While the landing shown is the above example is at drawn at a right angle of 90 degrees, keep in mind that, as with stairs, you could draw these two segments at various angles and still generate a landing between them.
