Commercial Bathroom Remodeling ADA Compliance

Things to Know When Remodeling Your Bathroom

Before you even begin your commercial bathroom remodeling project, there are a number of things to consider. Because it costs you time and money, you want to make sure you get it right the first time around.

Commercial Bathroom Remodeling – ADA Compliance Bathroom ComplianceAs a business, you must make sure that your bathroom is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). To start with, it must be big enough and the doorway wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair. You also need to mount a grab bar on the rear wall as well as the side wall of the toilet stall. Each must meet specific placement requirements.
Take care when planning out mirror placement. When located above countertops or lavatories, the bottom edge must be 40 inches above the ground, while for full-length mirrors the top edge should be located a minimum of 74 inches from the ground. If you are installing a shower in the bathroom, it must be able to accommodate wheelchairs, have a shower seat and grab bars for safety.

Flooring Options

You want to choose flooring that can stand up to repeated wear and tear, and it needs to be able to stand up to harsh commercial cleaners. No matter what type of business you have, we can help you install a number of different flooring options that are resilient but also appear professional and of good quality.

Some things to keep in mind when choosing a floor surface:

• Design with a gentle slope for draining
• Stay away from grout lines for easy movement of strollers and wheelchairs
• Choose flooring with high tractability but smooth enough for cleaning easily
• Can withstand cleaners and detergents
• Have a floor-to-wall base for easy cleaning and to prevent the buildup of grime
• Offer slip-resistance in the event of spilled water
• Can accommodate heavy foot traffic

Flooring you may want to consider includes vinyl, ceramic tile, concrete paint, polished concrete and epoxy flooring.
