BS9266:2013 is a new British Standard and provides a Code of Practice for the ‘Design of accessible and adaptable general needs housing’. 

BS9266:2013 gives recommendations for the design of accessible and adaptable general needs housing, whether in the form of flats or individual houses. It covers car parking, external access routes to blocks of flats or individual houses, common circulation areas in blocks of flats, circulation areas within dwellings and the provision of key rooms and facilities.

It is designed to ensure that best practice is applied to all new general needs housing and is an essential guide for anyone involved in design and build of housing from architects and designers to residential property developers, house builders and all sub-contractors such as flooring contractors.

Gradus has produced an information leaflet covering the parts of BS9266:2013 which are relevant to the specification of Gradus products (entrance matting, stair edgings and visual contrast).
