ADA Planning Guide Targets Doors and Entrances

Ellison Bronze, Inc. announces the publishing of its ADA Planning Guide for Entrances and Doors, which explores the general scoping and technical requirements for accessible entrances and doors in the ADA Standards.

Ellison’s ADA Planning Guide for Entrances and Doors is the only resource of its kind in the industry, and an invaluable reference for architects designing easily accessible and unobstructed spaces.

“The specification process can be complex and we wanted to provide a resource to streamline it for doors and entrances,” says Roger Overend, President and CEO, Ellison Bronze, Inc. “It is a convenient tool covering the basic ADA scope, taking into account the aspects of door design – sizes, clearance requirements, accessible routes, and much more.”

The four sections of the guide establish design requirements for doors and entrances in new construction or retrofit facilities subject to ADA standards – ensuring that state and local government buildings, public accommodations, and other commercial facilities are readily accessible to and useable by individuals with disabilities.

Complete with easy-to-read content as well as charts, graphics, and other helpful recommendations, the guide is a go-to planning resource for designers. Contents include:

Accessible Entrances: Minimum Number

Doors, Doorways, and Gates

Automatic and Power-Assisted Doors and Gates
