The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law on July 26th, 1990, and since then has helped to ensure that people with disabilities have access to the same opportunities as everyone else. This landmark legislation has helped to make our society more inclusive and welcoming for all.
As we celebrate the 33rd anniversary of the ADA, it's a good time to think about how we can continue to make our businesses and public spaces more accessible. The ADA law requires employers and public entities like schools, hospitals, and government offices to provide reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities. One great way to ensure that your building is accessible for everyone is to install an ADA-compliant wheelchair ramp system.
In order for a wheelchair ramp to be considered compliant with ADA standards, it must adhere to certain specifications. For example, each ramp should have a minimum clear width of thirty-six inches, include level landings at the top and bottom of each ramp and ramp run, and must have handrails on both sides when the ramp is more than six inches off the ground. The slope of the ramp should not exceed a 1:12 ratio and all ramp and landing drop-offs must be protected by curbs at least two inches high to keep users from slipping off.
Getting your building up to code may sound like a daunting task to take on, but not to worry! The experienced professionals at EZ-ACCESS® have created an ADA-compliant access solution, perfect for any establishment looking to ramp up their accessibility.
