What is the ADA?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law, not a building code. This act is designed to provide protection and access for people with disabilities.
What is the intent of ADA, Title III?
Essentially, owners of certain types of buildings must remove barriers and provide people with disabilities with access equal to, or similar to, that available to the general public. The deadline for compliance was January 26, 1992. The final rules implementing Title III were published in the Federal Register of July 26, 1991. To obtain a copy or ask questions, contact the U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. Technical information can be obtained from The U.S. ARCHITECTURAL AND TRANSPORTATION BARRIERS COMPLIANCE BOARD.
How does ADA affect doors?
The ADA defines an “accessible” opening which means, among other things, providing a door with a minimum 32˝ (813 mm) clear opening, easily manipulated handles, a maximum opening force, a minimum closing time, and capable of opening to at least 90°.
