ADA Compliant Parking Areas
Well marked, visible parking and walkway places guide pedestrian and motorist movement while on your property. The security of everyone on your property is important, which is why it is necessary to adhere to regulations regarding the identifying color, spacing and patterns as put forth by the National, State and Local laws and regulations. The federal law, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), clearly indicates parking requirements for designated disabled people and these rules are particularly important to be familiar with and adhere to.
In addition, we use striping to help indicate handicap parking and routes of movement for motorists. All commercial and industrial businesses as well as any company that services the public, need to follow town codes that are standards of practice that must be adhered to.
Unlimited Professional Service offers one stop shopping for parking lot striping and signage including ADA compliance issues. We also stay current on all updates to the ADA law regarding parking lots. Some parking lot owners are unsure of all facets of ADA rules and regulations and just don’t know where to begin. If you one of those and are attempting to achieve parking lot handicap compliance, you’ve come to the correct place. Unlimited Professional Services provides all types of services for parking lot maintenance.
Unlimited Professional Service has all the necessary knowledge and experience in bringing all parking lots and handicap parking stalls with the provisions of the ADA into conformity. Designated paths of travel, appropriate signage and handicap parking stalls are a major part of the ADA rules and regulations. The ADA rules and regulations also indicate the proper slope requirements that are essential in parking stalls and path of travel areas.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) makes it illegal to discriminate against individuals with disabilities in public places. A disabled person is allowed to file a civil lawsuit to enforce conformity with all provisions of the act. They are also entitled to payment of these legal fees and penalties. ADA laws supersede all local codes and apply to all building regardless of the age of the building. The original purpose of the Act has been used in the last several years by some lawyers as the basis for filing litigation against property owners for any and all infractions, including non compliant handicap parking stall spaces.
Unlimited Professional Service services include:
- Design, layout and striping handicap parking booth, including Van Accessible and Standard stalls
- Handicap signage setup including driveway entrance signs and parking booth
Accessible Parking Spaces
According to ADA rules and regulations, when a parking lot is restriped, the lot must be restriped in such a way as to provide accessible parking spaces as required by the ADA Standards for Accessible Design. Additionally, privately owned businesses that offer services or goods to the public are obligated to remove obstacles to entry in existing parking lots. This tends to be relatively inexpensive to do because of the affordability of striping lots.
