ADA Compliant Showers Made Easy

If you are researching remodeling or new construction projects‚ especially for bathrooms‚ you will likely come across the terms “ADA compliant” and “Accessible.” It is important to understand the difference before deciding what you need for your project. ADA stands for The Americans with Disabilities Act which is a civil rights legislation enacted in 1990 to prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities. The act requires that any public or commercial building in the U.S.‚ complies with ADA requirements. ADA usually does not apply to private residences.

ADA vs. Accessible Showers:

  1. ADA Roll-In Showers (minimum 60" x 30" inside dimension)
    Make maneuvering in a wheelchair easy, with 60" x 30" of accessible shower space. Some jurisdictions require a 60" x 36" inside dimension so that caregivers can easily assist.

  2. ADA Transfer Showers (36" x 36" inside dimension)
    Specially designed so that users can transfer onto a shower bench from a wheelchair parked outside the shower unit. To comply with ADA requirements, ADA Transfer Showers must be properly accessorized.

Accessible Showers share some of the features that ADA compliant showers have, but they are designed for residential use. There are rarely code compliance requirements for residential use, so you can choose from many different sizes and styles.

Finding the perfect ADA Compliant Roll-In Shower is easy with Freedom Showers. We have multi-piece units for remodeling projects and offer one-piece shower stalls for new construction. ADA Compliant Showers can be delivered to the job site fully accessorized to meet ADAAG guidelines (folding shower bench with legs or without legs, grab bars, shower accessories, etc.)

Barrier Free Threshold

For an ADA compliant shower, the shower stall must be barrier free with a beveled curb no higher than ½". Otherwise, the curb must be flush with the bathroom floor. Freedom handicapped accessible shower floors are textured for additional safety. Freedom Showers carries a large selection of code compliant ADA Handicapped Showers, ADA Roll-in Showers, and ADA Transfer Showers.
