The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides Wheelchair Ramp Specification and access guidelines that most business are required to meet. Most residential applications (please see our residential or light commercial modular wheelchair ramp) do not need to meet ADA guidelines, but they are a good reference point for recommended ramp lengths. Most businesses, churches, schools and other organizations must comply with ADA Specifications and ADA guidelines for handicapped wheelchair ramp access. Contact your local building inspector for additional information.
Please note: This guideline is only intended to highlight our interpretation of some of the ADA Wheelchair Ramp Specifications or guidelines and is not intended to replace or supersede ADA guidelines, specifications or requirements. If you need to meet ADA guidelines, we suggest you consult an ADA Compliance Consultant or your local building inspector.
