Accessible Swimming Pools and Spas

Thursday, March 3, 2011

The ADA and ABA Accessibility Guidelines address independent access to swimming pools and spas and provide criteria for pool lifts, sloped entries, transfer steps, transfer walls, and accessible stairs. This session will review specifications for pool and spa accessibility and where they apply. Aquatic recreation facilities, such as lazy rivers and wave action pools, will also be addressed.
