AS 1428.3-1992: Design for access and mobility – Requirements for children and adolescents with physical disabilities
AS 1428.3 sets out requirements for facilities specifically intended for use by children and adolescents with physical disabilities.
Details on four age ranges (from 3 to 18 years of age) and disability groups are provided. AS 1428.3 is now obsolete but may be considered when developing best-practice or performance-based solutions considering the specific needs of occupants based on their age.
Particular attention is given to accessways and circulation spaces and consistent linkages suitable for use by people who use wheelchairs, and access and facilities for people with ambulatory disabilities and for people with sensory disabilities.
