In the realm of accessible design, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) sets the standards for inclusivity, particularly in door installations. The most crucial elements for ADA compliance are:
- The minimum opening force required to operate a door, which must not exceed 5 pounds.
- The operation of the door must be possible with one hand & must not require tight grasping, pinching, or twisting of the wrist
- The handles must be located 34″ to 48″ above the ground
This standard is essential for pocket doors, often an overlooked aspect in ADA discussions. Looking to use sliding doors also makes adhering to a lot of the ADA requirements around doors a lot simpler as additional considerations such as space provided between hinged or pivoted doors is no longer such a concern. It is also worth nothing that there’s variation on what’s required between interior doors, exterior doors and fire doors, so in depth analysis of the literature here is required if it’s not already clearly stated that the door your purchasing is ADA compliant.
