Is your parking lot ADA compliant?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires public spaces to be accessible for users with mobility disabilities. Failure to comply with these requirements could make your premises inaccessible or pose safety hazards to people with disabilities, including tripping and falling hazards for those using mobility aids.

ADA Ramp Requirements
Ramp Dimensions – An ADA-compliant parking lot ramp needs to be a specific size and slope. The ADA requires a 1:12 slope ratio for the running rise-to-length and a 1:48 maximum cross-slope ratio.
Handrails: The ADA also requires that ramps with certain dimensions have handrails with particular spacing and run length requirements.
Landings: There are also specific requirements for landings at each end of all ramps.
Ramp Edge Protection – Ramps and landings may also require edge protection to prevent wheelchairs from slipping off the ramp.
