Implementation Guide AS1428.1-2009

This Implementation Guide has been created to assist in translating the requirements of AS1428.1-2009 into practical building solutions.

The Guide is designed for use by anyone needing to incorporating the requirements of AS1428.1-2009 in the design and construction of building projects.


The diagrams in the Guide are presented in a 3D format to assist with the clear understanding of the information conveyed and to help users visualise the three dimensional nature of the access and mobility requirements.

 Over 300 3D Diagrams

Text, table and information shown on Figures
in the Standard have been translated into
individual diagrams in the Guide. For example:
Figure 31 of the Standard relates to the
circulation space required around a swing door
depending on the size of the clear opening,
whether the door swings towards or away from
the user and the direction of approach.

 All text and tables drawn.

Each of the 32 different circulation spaces
included in this table have been translated
into individual diagrams clearly demonstrating
the dimensions required for each circumstance.
All text and tables drawn.
All Diagrams referenced to Clauses in the Standard
Each diagram clearly indicates which Figure
or text in the Australian Standard it relates
to for quick and easy cross-referencing
and indexes at the back of the Guide list
which Diagram relate to which parts of the Standard.

 All Diagrams referenced to Clauses in the Standard

Each diagram refers to specific elements
include in AS1428.1-2009 but these elements are not shown in isolation in the Guide.
Elements are shown in a built environment context to highlight the surrounding factors
that need to be taken in consideration when designing and constructing accessible facilities.

The three dimensions of the space requirements
in the Standard are illustrated through the use of
a 3D translucent envelope, clearly indicating the clear space required for access and mobility.

 All elements shown in context


"We are now using the Implementation Guide here at Cairns Regional Council and our staff have found it to be a very valuable tool. It has removed the ambiguity that is often found within the standards and allows our works crews to design and build a facility that does work and does not have the mistakes that we often see."
Ian Chill, Access and Equity Project Officer, Cairns Regional Council
