Here at Always Paving, we specialize in ADA compliant parking lot striping. If you are updating an existing parking lot or parking garage or building a new one, you can count on us to stripe your handicap spaces to code.
ADA Striping Requirements
Current federal ADA regulations state there must be at least one handicap space for every 25 spaces in a public parking area. At least one of those spaces must be handicap-van accessible, meaning it must have a 96-inch aisle to accommodate wheelchair lifts. Regular handicap spaces must have a 60-inch aisle to accommodate wheelchairs only. For hospitals, 10 percent of parking must be handicap accessible, and for rehabilitation facilities, 20 percent of parking must be handicap accessible. Always Paving uses state-of-the-art equipment to ensure crisp, sharp, accurately spaced lines that meet ADA marking specifications for all property types.
ADA Striping Benefits
We understand how frustrating keeping up with parking lot codes and regulations can be, so here is a short list of benefits that make ADA striping worth the hassle:
- It could be the difference between a customer choosing your business or someone else’s.
- Tax credits may be available for those who comply with ADA standards.
- Property value could increase since new owners won’t have to bring parking into compliance.
- You will avoid potential lawsuits and fines for non-compliance.
In addition to these benefits, a well-laid-out parking area has an attractive appearance and promotes safety by organizing the flow of traffic within the lot or garage. Plus, as the first thing visitors see, it creates a good impression of your business, and we all know first impressions matter.
