gradients as per offstreet carparking code

gradients as per offstreet carparking code

Does anyone take any notice of the minimum gradients spec'd in AS2890 CL, I never have but am getting some flak. I can even admit to designing some parts of a carpark completely flat. While I take notice of the maximums, the minimums to me seem to be out of the scope of the code.

I find the 1:100 requirement stupid for carparks with shopping trolleys, 1:100 is steep when those buggers are full. It is possible that I'm just getting weak.

An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made in a very narrow field
