8.3.3.2.3.1: Obstructed (<= 255 mm) side reach

Where the access space is integral to the ICT, allows a parallel approach and has an obstruction which is integral to the ICT, the height of the obstruction should be less than 865 mm (34 inches). Where the depth of the obstruction is less than or equal to 255 mm (10 inches), the high side reach to all essential controls should be no higher than 1 220 mm (48 inches) above the floor of the access space. This is shown in Figure 11 (a).
