Definition: The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990) set guidelines for accessibility to places of public accommodation and commercial facilities by individuals with disabilities.
ADA Compliant Hardware
(ADA is a familiar acronym for The American Disabilities Act that the U.S. Congress passed in 1990 and amended in 2008. In addition to establishing TDD/ telephone relay services, the ADA prohibits discrimination and mandates equal access for persons with disabilities to employment, transportation, state and local government services, public accommodations, and commercial facilities. The last two on the list are our primary concern at Factory Direct Hardware, where our quality locksets help architects, contractors, builders and others comply with ADA requirements in buildings of any kind.)
