#Adacompliance is a subject we take seriously at Maintco Corp. Although Federal ADA Title III Lawsuit numbers dropped approximately 15% in the first half of 2020, we are seeing a rebound as we engage to support our #customers.
You may be asking, why is ADA Title III important?
The law is there to ensure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. At Maintco Corp. some of our very own staff members rely on this legislation to enjoy equality.
As we work with our #losangeles customers, we see some common violations:
- Non-compliant parking lots
- Non-compliant paths of travel
- Inaccessible countertops and bathroom fixtures
In addition to national regulation, California carries more stringent ADA regulations under the California Title 24 ADA legislation. An example is “counter height”. Federal requirements denote a 36” regulation, whereas the California ADA rules stipulate a 34” maximum height. Maintco’s team is an expert at both standards.
