The United States Access Board has been slowly but surely building an online guide to the ADA. Chapter 5 – General Site and Building Elements, is now available. Although Chapter 5 doesn’t really apply to doors and hardware, this chapter of the guide may be helpful to architects, end users, and other iDigHardware readers who are responsible for designing or maintaining these building elements.
Entrances, doors, and gates are covered in Chapter 4 of the ADA Standards, and the online guide is available for that chapter as well. Chapters 1-3 are also complete, and guidance for Chapters 6-10 will be available online when they are ready.
If you missed my post on the guide for Chapter 4, there were some interesting interpretations about doors and hardware, which I listed in this blog post.
