Protruding Objects in Office Buildings, Apartment Buildings, and Condominiums
Protruding objects are installations in a facility that project more than 4 inches from a wall or hang within 80 inches of the finished floor or ground. Objects which protrude from walls or hang from overhead structures or ceilings mat not be detectable and are therefore hazardous, because a person with a visual disability may run into them. Detectable items are obstacles in the circulation path that can be detected and maneuvered around.
Protruding objects are limited in apartment buildings and condominiums. The diagram below is representative of the rules for protruding objects in public spaces for apartments and condominiums.
