Americans With Disabilities Act


The Americans With Disabilities Act was created in order to assure handicapped Americans with easy access to public and private buildings, businesses, offices, stores, and other buildings. Since everyone enters a building through a door, everyone must be able to easily use this door. The ADA Act of 1990 contains specific hardware requirements for entrance doors. The ADA guideline section 4.13.8 "Door Hardware" states:

"Handles, pulls, latches, locks and other operation devices shall have a shape that is easy to grasp with one hand and does not require tight grasping, pinching or twisting of the wrist to to operate. Lever-operated mechanisms, push-type mechanisms, and U-shaped handles are acceptable designs. Hardware required for passage shall be mounted no higher than 48 inches above the finished floor. "
