What Business Owners Should Know About Handicap Doors & ADA Compliance, Grandview, Ohio

If you own a business of any size, the Americans With Disabilities Act requires that you make your property accessible to people with disabilities. That often means installing handicap doors. Coordinating with professionals will ensure you’re in full compliance with the law. At Southern Ohio Door Controls, serving Kentucky and the Tri-state area, door installation experts will gladly answer any questions you have about this subject, equipping your business with ADA-compliant entrances.

An Introduction to the ADA

Handicap DoorsThe Americans With Disabilities Act, the regulations of which were first put into effect in 1992, serves to ensure that individuals with handicaps can still access basic services. Thus, even small businesses must take steps to make themselves accessible to those with handicaps or disabilities.

For instance, if a store owner requires guests to use stairs to access their business, they will need to install a ramp or similar fixture so guests in wheelchairs can also use the store. Anything considered a barrier to entry must be removed.

ADA-Compliant Entrances 

If you own a business, automatic doors may need to be installed. Individuals who struggle to open a door on their own still deserve access to your services. Thus, having doors that open automatically—and provide sufficient space for wheelchairs—will boost your ADA-compliance.

Luckily, door installation professionals can often convert your existing entrances into handicap doors. You don’t need to make substantial changes to the property to adhere to all the necessary regulations.

If you’re interested in adding handicap doors to your business, get in touch with the team at Southern Ohio Door Controls. Serving Kentucky and the Tri-state area, these experts can use your current doors and make the necessary changes without altering the building’s structure significantly. Visit them online to learn more, or call (513) 353-4793.
