If you are opening a new business or relocating an existing business to a new location, you need to make sure your building is ADA-compliant. Any business that offers goods and/or services to the general public must ensure their facility is compliant with current ADA requirements.
Some of the common areas where ADA compliance can be necessary include, but may not be limited to:
1. Parking Lots
There are specific requirements depending on the number of parking spaces.
2. Interior Routes
Routes inside buildings must be accessible for people with visual impairments, as well as those in wheelchairs.
3. Barriers to Entry
Any barriers to entry like stairs must be addressed to make the building accessible, such as installing an entrance ramp.
4. Ramps/Curb Ramps
When surfaces change by more than 0.5 inches (inclines, stairs, etc.), then ramps or curb ramps must be installed.
5. Walking Surfaces
Various types of walking surfaces can require different types of ADA tiles like wayfinding tiles to help direct the flow of visually impaired people.
