The Importance of ADA Compliance in Your Facility
The American Disability Act (ADA) came into law back in 1990. Its goal is to eliminate discrimination of people with disabilities in public areas. This includes but isn't limited to the workplace, schools, transportation, and other public spaces. ADA complaints ensure that individuals with disabilities receive an equal opportunity as everyone else. It is divided into five sections, or titles, that include:
- Title I ' Employment
- Title II ' State and Local Government
- Title III ' Public Accommodations
- Title IV ' Telecommunications
- Title V ' Miscellaneous Provisions
For a facility to be recognized as ADA compliant, having the correct ramps, cable covers, and rail systems for safe and easy access for both wheelchairs and pedestrians is mandatory. Luckily, CableOrganizer.com carries a number of various ADA/Handicap ramps and rails for wheelchair and pedestrian access.
The Tools You Need for ADA Compliance
ADA compliant facilities are not just nice to have ' they are usually mandated by the local government. Building codes are in place to make sure things like entrance ways and bathrooms can easily be accessed by anyone no matter if they have a disability or not.
One of the most frequently used tools for ADA compliance is a ramp system. Wheelchairs can't navigate easily over staircases, so having a ramp in place for wheelchair access is key. Many of the variations we offer are expandable. They are built to be highly stable so that there is no need for side rails.
Cord Covers and Cable protectors are key to keeping both pedestrians and wheelchair-bound individuals safe when they cross over cables, wires, and hoses. Our collection of ADA-compliant covers is low-profile yet heavy duty. They are so well-built that they can withstand being run over by vehicles, and they are certainly completely safe for wheelchairs. Covers prevent accidents at your facility by preventing trips, falls, and other hazards when a lot of wiring is being run through an establishment. They are an easy way to make sure you are ADA compliant while reducing your risk of liability.
ADA Compliance is a Necessity
If you or someone you love is wheelchair-bound, you know how important it is to be able to access everyday places like stores, banks, the doctor's office, supermarket, and even fun places like restaurants and museums. No matter what kind of facility you have, ADA compliance is a must. CableOrganizer.com has the tools to get you there.
