A question often asked is what accessibility standard do I follow: ADAAG, ADA/ABAAG, FHAA, MGRAD,UFAS, ANSI A117 or local requirements? Many are of the mistaken impression they must only comply with the ADA regulations. While ADA regulations have taken center stage, they do not apply universally.
This handbook on accessibility regulations for elevators, platform lifts and escalators contains rationale for the requirements; explanations, examples and excerpts from the codes, standards and regulations that are referenced. The information was compiled from committee minutes, correspondence and interpretations, as well as conversations with past and present personnel involved with the development, implementation, enforcement and interpretation of accessibility regulations.
The original intent for many of the requirements is obscure in the records. The authors, therefore, have tried to convey, through text and illustrations, the results of the requirements as applied to equipment installed today. With information of this type, it is hoped that the reader will have a better comprehension of,and appreciation for, the various accessibility requirements.
