ADA-Compliant Rails

ADA-Compliant Rails

If you own a commercial property, you need to make sure it’s safe for visitors of all abilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act has set requirements for how a property should be constructed, from the width of the parking spaces to the shape and depth of the stairs.

When you’re constructing or remodeling a property, you may need to reevaluate its ADA compliance to keep your business protected from lawsuits and fines. At Tampa Bay Hand Railing, we can create and install an ADA railing for businesses in the Tampa Bay, FL area.

ADA Railing Compliance

Handrails are an important part of ADA compliance because they allow visitors to stabilize themselves while walking on ramps, stairs, or other precarious locations, such as decks and elevated porches.

The ADA outlines measurements of height, size, and distance from adjacent surfaces. The ADA also specifies what types of structures need handrails. For example:

  • Handrails must be between 34 and 38 inches high.
  • Circular handrails must be between 1.25 and 2 inches in diameter.
  • Handrails must be at least 1.5 inches away from adjacent surfaces.
  • Handrails are required for all ramps with an overall rise of 6 inches or more.
  • Handrails are required for all flights of stairs.

These are just a few examples of the ADA railing requirements, which is why you need help from a professional such as Tampa Bay Hand Railings.
