Gridforce complies with Part M of the building regulations.
What is part M?
Part M requires reasonable provision shall be made for people, regardless of disability, age or gender to be able to:
a) Gain access to; and
b) Use the building and its facilities
The Gridforce products are manufactured and tested in accordance with use of wheelchair users, and comply with part M if the following criteria is adhered to:
- The infill material should be level with the grid to provide a solid stable surface for movement across. We suggest the use of an angular shaped gravel which interlocks within the cells to create a firm surface.
- The ramp should not exceed 1m in 12m (1:12)
- With long slopes there should be landing stages to allow rest.
