Moddex Group 's Assistrail range of disability compliant handrails meets all access and mobility requirements of the new Disability (Access to Premises – Buildings) Standards 2010, implemented on 1 May 2011.
Building owners and managers, institutions and governments must ensure that access to their buildings as well as pedestrian protection and access in parklands and recreational facilities comply not only with aesthetics but also the relevant Australian Standards, OHS and regulatory requirements.
Assistrail’s range of galvanised fittings for stairs, ramps and walkways meet all Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) requirements and building regulations, providing the right handrail and balustrade solution for stairways, pathways, ramps and walkways.
Architects and building practitioners should design, assess and specify against the new Premises Standards to be compliant. This will provide more certainty for building owners that their building complies with the Disability Discrimination Act. Specifying Assistrail will ensure full compliance while offering style and an aesthetically pleasing finish.
Assistrail’s add-on components means that these handrails can be used to upgrade an existing building and ensure compliance.

- No onsite welding
