ADA-Compliant Bathrooms Aren’t Optional

If you have new construction or you’re making changes to existing bathrooms, you legally must meet current ADA requirements so that everyone can comfortably and easily access the restroom. 

Building or changing a bathroom for maximum accessibility requires an experienced plumbing company. Kay Plumbing understands the intersection of local plumbing code and ADA requirements. We can explain them to you so you understand what is required and why.

Installation and Repair Services for Your Business’ Restrooms

Grab Bar Installation

Grab bars must be securely installed and follow important measurements for the safety of anyone who uses them. The ADA also has standards for how many grab bars must be placed and in what context. To make sure your grab bars are correctly installed, it’s important to hire a plumber who knows what they’re doing.

Lowered Sink Installation & Mirror Height Adjustments

In an ADA-compliant bathroom, you must have at least one sink and mirror that meet ADA standards, soap and paper towel dispensers within specified distances, and sink faucets picked based on accessibility, as well. Kay Plumbing can make sure you know what your compliant fixture choices are and pick the one that’s best for your space.

Accessible Toilet & Urinal Installation

The ADA has rules on toilets, where it should be located in relation to a bathroom or stall door and where it should be in relation to a sink. At least one urinal needs to be ADA-compliant. Plumbing professionals can install these fixtures just as easily as other fixtures, and they can help you understand where they need to be placed and what model you need to use to meet ADA standards.

Other Bathroom Fixture Installation

The ADA has requirements on where dispensers must be located so that anyone can reach them. Additionally, if you are building a bathroom space with children in mind, the ADA requires a different accommodation for a child’s smaller size and motor coordination. Kay Plumbing can assist you with these fixtures and help you build an accessible bathroom for any age group.

Upgrade, Replacement, & Repair Services

At Kay Plumbing, we always try to repair before we suggest replacing a fixture, but if we think it’ll cost more in the long run to keep repairing something than to replace it, we’ll tell you. If you decide to replace, we’ll give advice based on your needs and space so you can choose the best fixture, and we’ll install it for you, too.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to keep in mind to create ADA-compliant restrooms?

ADA restroom requirements have clearly defined minimum and maximum requirements for everything from the size and layout of the bathroom or stall to the placement of dispensers and grab bars. Largely, these measurements are based on how much space a wheelchair user is going to need, at minimum, to move easily in a bathroom or stall, but they’re useful for many other types of people, too. A brief list of things that you’ll need to keep in mind include:

  • How much space there is for a wheelchair user to turn in the room or stall in relation to plumbing fixtures and the door.
  • What height bathroom fixtures need to be placed at to be easy to reach for anyone.
  • How the size of your restroom and number of stalls and/or urinals affects what is required.
  • If you have an older building, you should get an understanding of how that changes what is expected of you when you decide to renovate any bathrooms on the property.
  • How you might choose to go beyond the minimum requirements the ADA provides to make your space accessible to people with a variety of mobility aids and needs.

What does it mean if something is “technically infeasible”?

You’ll see this phrase pop up in the ADA because existing buildings haven’t always been built with accessibility in mind. For example, a property owner might be updating a restroom on their property, and to comply with ADA requirements, they need to make the space larger. However, the wall that would need to move or be adjusted to create the necessary space is structurally integral. Moving this wall would be “technically infeasible” – it’s really not practical to try updating this bathroom.

This does not mean the business owner is necessarily exempt from meeting ADA standards. For just about every “technically infeasible” situation, the ADA outlines an alternative requirement, such as building an additional bathroom in the same area and clearly marking where this bathroom is with the International Symbol of Accessibility (which you probably recognize as the blue and white stick figure you see, for example, in parking spots).

My building has multiple floors and is exempt from the requirement to have an accessible route between the floors. Do I still need to follow these guidelines?

Yes. You must have an ADA-compliant bathroom that is accessible on any floor you place or update a bathroom. If you have an accessible bathroom on an upper level that does not have an accessible route, you must also have an accessible bathroom on a lower accessible floor with a clear route.

When are sinks exempt from ADA standards?

Sinks that are for work use-only are exempt from ADA requirements, as are “service sinks,” or the mop sink a janitorial staff might use. The ADA recommends making these sinks accessible, but they do not require it. If a sink is at all used by members of the general public, then no matter what it is for, it must meet ADA sink standards.

Are eyewash stations exempt from ADA standards?

No. Eyewash stations must meet ADA requirements.

When am I required to follow the ADA standards for children?

The ADA never requires it. However, you may be required to use the ADA bathroom standards for children if you have building or other regulations that require it. Be sure you understand what requirements your building must legally meet to operate, and call contracting experts or disability lawyers if you’re not sure.

Though you aren’t required to create bathroom spaces with ADA standards for children, there are situations where you might consider doing so anyway, like if you operate a business that works mainly with children.

What if a local building code overlaps with an ADA requirement?

The ADA has workarounds for any potential obstruction to an accessible bathroom. Follow local building codes, but make sure you’re still meeting at least minimum accommodation requirements by referring to the ADA or an expert.

How do I know if I’m exempt from ADA standards?

Generally, if it’s not otherwise stated in the ADA, then it depends if you fall into a certain category. For example, if you are a small business owner and you meet certain requirements, then you might be in TItle I, which means you are exempt from meeting ADA requirements. The same is true if, for example, you are a private, tax-exempt organization, like a religious entity. This type of organization is part of Title III. If you think you may be exempt but you’re not positive, you should speak with a disability lawyer.

I don’t know that I have the resources to meet an ADA requirement. Will I face consequences?

It depends a lot on your particular context. It’d be best to contact a reputable disability lawyer to help you figure out what is legally required of you to operate.
