Features of ADA Compliance

Since its inception in 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has paved the way for improved accessibility. This includes creating door requirements that cater to the needs of disabled and non-disabled people, guaranteeing easy access for everyone. By outlining specific guidelines for door width, clearance, and handles, the ADA ensures that no one is left behind.

Wide Door Clearance

To allow entrance of people using crutches and wheelchairs, the door width standard on an ADA office pod is a minimum of 32 inches when the door is open to 90 degrees. Most ADA pods available in our range have a 36 inch width doorway, allowing ample space for comfortable entry for wheelchair users or other mobility aids. With wide door clearance and a low threshold, manoeuvrability is a breeze.

Full ADA compliance means the area within the office pod provides adequate interior space for wheelchair manoeuvrability.
