Accessible Entrances, Doors, and Gates

Thursday, March 7, 2019

Description

Rescheduled from January due to government shut down. Previously registered users do not need to register again.

Entrances, doors, and gates are key components of access along routes and to buildings, rooms, and spaces. This session will cover scoping and technical requirements in the ADA and ABA Standards for entrances, doors and gates. Presenters will review in detail the specifications for maneuvering clearances at doors using images and animations to better explain the rationale behind these provisions. They will also address recessed doors, automatic doors and gates, doors in a series, door hardware and other topics.
