An illustrated handbook of the handicapped section of the North Carolina state building code

Author: Mace, R. L., Laslett, B.
Type: Book
Year: 1977


This publication provides guidelines for making most new and remodelled buildings accessible to and usable by handicapped people - those in wheelchairs, on crutches, with leg braces, or with sight, hearing or coordination defects or those who through ageing accident or disease move with difficulty. It is the spirit and intent of the code requirements to provide these people full and free use of all buildings and facilities in the state so that they may have the education, employment, living, and recreation opportunities necessary to be as self-sufficient as possible.
