Thank you for your interest in the codes and standards that govern accessibility requirements. This course explores the demographics that are driving the accessible bath fixture market. All manufacturers must comply with the same requirements in order to meet UFAS and ADA standards. The accessibility standards common to all manufacturers challenge them to evacuate water on a shower floor that has a ¼-inch pitch to the drain. This is made more difficult by the fact that accessible showers have dams with minimal heights. The evolution of accessibility standards, the federal guidelines, and the products that meet these standards will be reviewed. At the end of this course you will be able to list codes and standards that govern accessibility requirements, identify project types that require accessible bath fixtures, and specify bath fixtures and accessories that meet current accessibility guidelines. Take the course.
