Americans with Disabilities Act - ADA

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities.  The ADA Standards for Accessible Design set accessibility guidelines to places of public accommodation and commercial facilities by individuals with disabilities.

 

The heart of ADA is to ensure equal access to public facilities by those who are disabled.  The ADA includes a set of guidelines and building standards that mandate how buildings are designed and constructed to ensure the safety and accessibility for those who are disabled.  One of the guidelines deals with plumbing fixtures including toilets, sinks, faucets, and other plumbing fixtures.
