Accessibility For Everyone

In today’s world it’s important to accommodate for everyone that could try to enter your facility. Accessibility is commonly overlooked, making those with disabilities or physical impairments feel left out or unable to physically access buildings or facilities.

Specifically, doors present some of the most common accessibility issues. They may be too “heavy” and require too much force to open. Those doors are especially difficult for people with disabilities and seniors with limited upper body strength and/or skills in using their hands.  They may close too quickly for some people to pass through easily.  People who move slowly or use mobility devices like wheelchairs or walkers may not be able to pass through fast enough.

ADA Compliance, And Why You Need To Know It

ADA compliance isn't just important for proper business ethics, it's the lawThe Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, and transportation. 

"Since ADA compliance is the law, and enforceable on any public facility, it's key that the door closer tension is adjusted properly."

Public facilities and their management need to be proactive and review their buildings to make sure it is ADA compliant. It is important to have policy, procedure, and proper accommodations in place for everyone that could potentially visit the facility. Failure to cooperate with ADA standards could be a law suit waiting to happen. 

How To Increase Accessibility
