ADA Guidelines



This is an informal opinion about our interpretation of the ADA requirements for access to raised floor environments. This interpretation stems from many years of experience. However, we recommend checking with your local Fire Marshall to determine their interpretation of the same code. Our experience has taught us the interpretation of the code rests with pleasing your Fire Marshall and passing your state inspection.

We offer this information because many customers accessing this site are seeking this information. Again, before building, please check with your local inspector.
