3Phase Elevator Corporation

ADA Compliance

The Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into federal law in 1990 by President George Bush .The act requires that all publicly accessible buildings, (not including private residences) comply with certain standards to make them more accessible for those with physical challenges. The ADA specifically covers elevators, and sets standards for elevator floor size, door with button heights, visual and tactile (Braille) signage, along with visual and audible signals.

Since the ADA was signed into law, 3PHASE Elevator have been called upon to upgrade many elevators to full or partial compliance.

The United States Department of Justice maintains a comprehensive website regarding ADA standards. This website provides building standards that can be downloaded in PDF format, or viewed on your browser. These standards covers the aspects of building design, and provides drawings and images. Part 4.10 covers ADA standards as they apply to elevators.
