Protruding Objects [§204]

To prevent hazards to people with vision impairments, the standards limit the projection of objects into circulation paths. 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.

Examples of Protruding Objects

Examples of protruding objects: sconces, handrails, cabinets, drinking fountains and other elements that project into circulation paths). Notes: These elements must comply with provisions for protruding objects (unless they are located within cane sweep or above headroom clearance). Requirements for protruding objects apply to all interior and exterior circulation paths of sites. They are not limited to hallways and corridors and apply equally to circulation paths in rooms and spaces.
