Americans with Disabilities Act - ADA

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities.   A subset of ADA - the Standards for Accessible Design, describe the accessibility guidelines for places of public accommodation and commercial facilities.

 

ADA is focused on ensuring the disabled equal access to public facilities, and includes a set of building standards that mandate how buildings are designed and constructed to ensure the safety and accessibility of the disabled.  One section of the ADA also specifies the physical standards for ADA type plumbing fixtures including toilets, sinks, faucets, and other fixtures.
