Meeting ADA Compliance with Vandal Stop
Meeting ADA Compliance is critical for our customers and we work hard to provide solutions that meet ADA requirements. It is important to consult with your ADA compliance offer when speccing and installing any fixture that is to be used in an ADA compliant stall. Some of the larger Jumbo Roll dispenser units may need to have the Grab Bar installed at the maximum height in order to provide enough space between the bar and the top of the dispenser while keeping enough space for the minimum paper dispensing height. Some installs may also require a partial recessment of the dispenser as well.
Toilet paper dispensers shall comply with 309.4 and shall be 7 inches (180 mm) minimum and 9 inches (230 mm) maximum in front of the water closet measured to the centerline of the dispenser. The outlet of the dispenser shall be 15 inches (380 mm) minimum and 48 inches (1220 mm) maximum above the finish floor and shall not be located behind grab bars. Dispensers shall not be of a type that controls delivery or that does not allow continuous paper flow.
Operable parts shall be operable with one hand and shall not require tight grasping, pinching, or twisting of the wrist. The force required to activate operable parts shall be 5 pounds (22.2 N) maximum.
