ADA products, and the importance of doing things right

ADA (American Disabilities Act) products are specifically designed to cater to the special needs of people with physical disabilities. In the kitchen or bathroom, ADA compliance is focused on safety, usability, and accessibility. Depth is the primary requirement of ADA compliant kitchen and bathroom sinks, while ease of use is required for ADA compliant faucets.

Considering the guidelines

ADA design and installation guidelines are strict and specific. For example, a sink that is meant to be accessible for a wheelchair user should be 5 to 6.5 inches deep. The countertop should be between 29 and 36 inches, and there must be an open space in the room that is at least 60 inches wide to allow the user to turn around.

Our approach

We at Allora USA understand that your decision to renovate your space or even to create a new kitchen or bathroom from scratch is a costly one, with the results often expected to last for a lifetime. With this in mind, and considering the special needs of people with physical disabilities, we provide products that are not only compliant but also built to last.

 

Whether you’re a homeowner doing a single renovation or your project requires hundreds of sinks or faucets, find the ADA products you need to bring your design to life.

Design Tips for ADA Compliant Bathrooms

Designing your bathroom according to ADA guidelines can add value to your house. To create an accessible space, make sure the door width is at least 32”. Floor space is essential for wheelchair users; a 30” x 48” of clear floor space allows for ample room for wheelchair mobility. Choosing a toilet with a 16-1/2” rim height allows for easier and more comfortable use. Sinks should be no more than 34” in height and allow ample room below for a wheelchair to fit. Selecting a faucet with lever handles make the faucet easier to operate for limited grip strength. With Allora USA's ADA collection, you can create a beautiful bathroom that safely and comfortably supports independently remaining at home.

Design Tips for ADA Compliant Kitchens

Adding ADA Compliant kitchen faucets and sinks is an easy way to update your home, and make it accessible for all residents, regardless of any age or ability. American Standard offers a range of ADA Compliant Kitchen Sink and Kitchen Faucets to make living at home more convenient for your needs. Here are some tips on designing a compliant kitchen. Faucets should be ergonomic and designed with a single, easy to grip control so that operation is simple and effortless. Faucets should only require the use of one hand to turn on and off. Hands-free faucet technology, such as Selectronic, is a great option to use in an ADA Kitchen. Sinks designed to be wheelchair accessible are usually shallow and range from 5 inches to 6.5 inches deep. This allows user to reach all the way to the bottom of the sink, and still provide enough clearance under the sink for a wheelchair or other walking aid. To better accommodate wheelchair users, make sure the countertop or work surface is between 29 – 36 inches high. A walk through kitchen should be 40 inches wide to allow for a wheelchair to fit, while an enclosed, pass-through kitchen should have 60 inches of open space to allow for a wheelchair to be able to turn around.
