the Americans with
Disabilities Act (ADA) does not specifically apply to residential
dwellings, businesses and public accommodations that are required to comply
with the ADA commonly use "ADA compliant" components to improve
accessibility. We strive to make our product descriptions helpful, but using "ADA compliant" could mislead someone into
thinking that the ADA does apply to residences. All of our plans, and nearly
all components meet or exceed the ADA standards that apply to public
accommodations. An example of a component that may not be ADA compliant
would be a sliding patio door exit.
A regulation or guideline that
did apply to residential dwellings could benefit everyone that has now, or
may in the future be limited access to their own home. Hopefully someday all
new homes will at least incorporate some
universal design features, making them safer, more accessible and
user-friendly for everyone.
