ada compliance: a guide
Government regulations can be highly confusing. That's why at Lubbock Asphalt Repair, we train our contractors to be well versed in ADA's guidelines so you can have your questions answered and your parking lot up to code. Here's the basics of ADA compliant parking lot requirements:
- Number of handicap parking spots: This number depends on the total number of spots in your parking lot. Generally, one in every six handicap spots should be van-accessible. Medical facilities with outpatient services need an additional ten percent of available handicap spaces. Rehab centers for physical therapy patients need twenty percent more available handicap spots.
- Handicap-accessible signs: Any handicap parking spot must be marked with the international symbol of accessibility mounted on a pole. The sign must be at least five feet above the ground so even if a vehicle is parked there, the sign is visible. The post must be at the head of the parking spot, and if the spot is van-accessible, the sign must denote that.
- Location of handicap-accessible parking spaces: Logically, handicap-accessible parking spots must be the spots that are closest to the entrance of the building and closest to ramps that lead to the entrances.
- Size specifications: For standard handicap parking spaces, they should be at least eight feet wide, with a five foot wide access aisle next to the parking spot that should lead to a ramp or entryway. If it's a van-accessible spot, it should be eleven feet wide. In some cases, the spot can be eight feet wide as long as the access aisle by the spot is also eight feet wide. There should also be a vertical clearance of at least 98 inches so vehicles equipped with a wheelchair lift can properly access the spot.
- Painting specifications: The most typical colors for a handicap spot are blue for the background and white for the symbol, but red, yellow, or green may also be used. The main goal of the color choices is to make the pavement markings stand out from the color of the pavement. Access aisles must be painted with diagonal lines to discourage people from parking there, and a "no parking" pavement marking is also an option.
