ADA Title III requires that any new construction be built with ADA compliant toilet stalls. These stalls must either meet or exceed the requirements set down by the ADAAG. Furthermore, remodeling projects in existing public restrooms must also follow the same new construction guidelines.
The following non-exhaustive summary of basic guidelines can give you a general idea of what fixtures and accessories you will need to order to keep our project in compliance with Federal Code. Additional local codes will also have to be followed to keep your facility in good standing with all regulatory agencies, be they local, state, or Federal.
Standard Wheelchair Accessible Toilet Compartments
A standard size, wheelchair accessible ADA toilet stall is required for all new constructions and remodels. The toilet must be offset on the back wall so that its centerline measures 18 inches from the nearest partition or side wall. The door must swing outward no ore than 4 inches from the corner diagonal to the toilet. Grab bars must be mounted horizontally on the nearest side wall or partition and on the back wall.
ADA Toilet stall Doors
Restroom partition doors must open and close with only 5 pounds of force or less. Additionally, any latches, locks, door pulls, or handles must be operable with only one hand. The user must be able to operate these attachments without twisting his or her wrist in the process. Door attachments can be no more than 48 inches from the floor.
