ADA Compliance: What Does it Mean?

If you’re a business owner or company manager, you have probably heard the term “ADA-compliant” thrown around. But do you know what being ADA-compliant means truly means? Do you know how to properly adhere to ADA Compliance guidelines?

If you are not familiar with ADA guidelines, don’t be embarrassed. This is unfamiliar territory for many new businesses young and old. After all, the Department of Justice only published the revised edition of the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design in 2010. It is comprehensive, complicated, and must be read with great care. Not everyone has the time to read the ADA Act from start to finish—but that’s why Shell Door Service, Inc. is at the service of all business and property owners in the Placer County area! We know the standards of the ADA Act like the back of our hand.

In short, these standards state that all convenience stores, banks, businesses, and public facilities must guarantee service to people with disabilities. This means making sure your facility is fully accessible to anyone with a disability.

Not only should the ADA standards be followed, but their importance should be understood. Everyone deserves easy access to public services.

Does My Business Need ADA Upgrades?

Does your small business need to be ADA-compliant? The ADA contains an exemption for businesses that employ fewer than 15 people. However, if your business employs greater than 15 people, your facilities must be ADA-compliant. If you have other questions about ADA compliance, just give Shell Door Service, Inc. a call!

ADA Compliance Upgrades for Your Placer County Doors

If your building’s door is not ADA-compliant, you will need to call us to upgrade your door.

What are the requirements for an ADA-compliant door? ADA-compliant doors must be of a certain width to comfortably accommodate wheelchairs or scooters. The doors must also open to a minimum of 90 degrees. For double doors, the minimum width is 48 inches.

For a door to be ADA-compliant, it must also have fully accessible hardware and handles. When the sliding door is fully open the door’s operating hardcore must still be exposed and fully within reach, and any compliant hardware must be mounted no higher than 48 inches above the floor.

There are many other regulations as well. The door must close at a certain speed, and the doorways must be clear of obstructions, to name a few.
