Wrapping Your Head Around the ADA Standards for Accessible Design

If you are responsible for designing or constructing a new building or facility, or for making alterations to an existing one, it is essential you take the time and review the current ADA standards to ensure your building or facility will be compliant.

The ADA standards apply to specific types of properties, such as public areas, schools, libraries, government offices, medical care facilities, and so on. These types of spaces and buildings must be easily accessible and usable by people with disabilities.

Part of the ADA standards includes sidewalks, curbs, and ramps. These types of structures should be designed to include tactile warning surfaces for people with visual impairments. To learn more about the ADA standards, tactile warning surfaces, and a timeline of how the ADA standard came about, we invite you to continue reading and reviewing the following infographic.

Afterward, if you have further questions about tactile warning surfaces or need assistance in selecting the right ones for your building, facility, or other locations, please feel free to contact ADA Solutions directly.
