What is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?

Established in 1990, the ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individual with disabilities in all areas of public life and all public and private places that are open to the general public. From our perspective, ADA guidelines provide protections to those individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment and transportation, as well as state and local government.

ADA guidelines are designed to ensure proper access to the built environment for people with disabilities. ADA standards establish thorough and in-depth requirement for the construction and alteration of facilities are applicable in homes, places of public accommodation, commercial facilities as well as state and local government agencies.

In reference to the ADA, Title III (Public Accommodations) and the Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability by Public Accommodations and in Commercial Facilities is of particular importance. This title prohibits private places of public accommodation from discriminating against individuals with disabilities.

So, if you are the proprietor, manager or lease-holder of facilities like a hotel, restaurant retail store, doctor’s office, golf courses, private schools, health clubs, sports stadiums, movie theaters,etc., then you have a duty of care to make sure that people who use a wheelchair or any other form of assisted mobility have access to your property.

What We Do

At Shell Door Service, Inc., we take our responsibilities in this respect very seriously and we always make sure that any ADA compliance upgrades that we work on are of the highest possible standard possible. To achieve these targets, we make sure that the alterations and new construction we work on are as detailed and thorough as possible.

If necessary, we can also help public buildings remove barriers in existing buildings without much difficulty or expense. By doing so, we make it easier for people with disabilities to access properties of this nature.
