ADA Building Requirements for Elevators

Posted by Leah RileyApr 29, 2016

It is critical to understand the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for elevators when constructing or renovating a place of public accommodation or commercial facility and vertical accessibility is required. At Burnham, we conduct code reviews and site inspections for accessibility compliance and may see elevators that are not designed or installed to comply with the ADA. In this post, we will highlight some of the ADA requirements for elevators.

Understanding the ADA and Local Accessibility RequirementsWhen examining ADA elevator requirements, it is important to understand that the ADA is a federal law that applies throughout the United States.The ADA, enacted in 1990, prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities.Title III of the ADA specifically prohibits discrimination by private entities that operate as places of public accommodation. Newly constructed or altered places of public accommodation and commercial facilities must comply with the ADA.There are also rules implementing the ADA, the 2010 Standards for Accessible Design (2010 Standards) which incorporate the 2004 ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) of the U.S. Access Board, the federal agency charged with developing accessibility guidelines. ADAAG contains scoping and technical requirements for new construction and alterations, including requirements for elevators.In addition to being aware of the ADA’s requirements, one must know the accessibility requirements of your state and local jurisdiction. Although state and local accessibility standards are frequently similar to the ADA, they sometimes have different or stricter requirements.Highlights of ADA Requirements for ElevatorsThe ADA requirements for elevators are found in Section 407 of ADAAG Chapter 4: Accessible Routes. Section 206.2.3 of ADAAG Chapter 2: Scoping Requirements specifies some exceptions to the elevator requirements. For example, private buildings that are less than three floors do not have to provide an elevator unless they are a shopping center, professional office or other specified type of use.The requirements below represent some of the elevator standards for new construction or alterations. Less restrictive requirements apply to elevators in existing construction.

  • Every building must have at least one passenger elevator to meet the ADA’s accessibility requirements. Service elevators may be used to comply with the accessibility standards as long as all required elements are included as part of the design. There are options for sizes and door placement to allow a wheelchair user to enter, maneuver to reach the controls, and then exit the elevator.
  • Raised and Braille floor designations must be located on both jambs. Call buttons are required to be either raised or flush and at least three-quarters of an inch in diameter.
  • The buttons both inside and outside of the elevator must be within the regulations’ specified reach range for a wheelchair user. All buttons with numbers must be in ascending order. Raised and Braille designations shall be placed to the left of the control button.
  • There should be visible and verbal signals to indicate which elevator car is available, its direction, and when it has reached a designated floor.
  • The elevator door must remain fully open for at least three seconds in response to a call. The two-way communication device in the elevator cannot be more than 48″ from the floor.

These are just a few of the ADA requirements for elevators. Staying abreast of all the ADA building requirements can be a challenge. However, we at Burnham can help you review building plans and make sure that the elevators and other aspects of your building are ADA compliant.
