The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires most businesses’ doors to meet certain standards. These rules are meant to make your business simple to access and navigate for those with disabilities. The rules don’t just benefit those in wheelchairs, but also those with all sorts of handicaps or disabilities. For example, did you know round doorknobs are not ADA-compliant because those with arthritis and other wrist and hand disabilities cannot easily turn them?
ADA door rules might be a bit more complicated than you thought. Thankfully, the team at CLAD is standing by to walk you through the requirements, retrofit your doors for compliance, or help you choose brand new doors and hardware that meet ADA standards.
