As we get older, priorities change. The need for greater accessibility and functionality become top concerns, as well as consolidation and making the home more efficient after downsizing. Things being stored out of reach or on high counter tops present a fall risk. Old cupboards and cabinet drawers cause pain on hands and wrists, and require excess effort to close. Easy access our belongings and getting the most out of our existing storage space is now a “must have” for our day-to-day.
ADA guidelines were established to make sure that these priorities and needs are met. However, we do not want to sacrifice the aesthetic value of our kitchen or closet, or settle for low quality products simply to achieve a universally accessible home.
Outfitting an existing kitchen with shelves and drawers that are easy-to-use and high quality can seem like a daunting task, but ezeGlide is an industry leader and trusted contractor for trouble-free ADA compliant storage.
ADA Compliant Shelving
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) sets standards to improve accessibility in the home for those who are disabled. This includes things like counter top height restrictions, reachable measurements for shelves and cupboards, and a wider spaces for better range of motion.
For instance, the ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) requires that, “clothes rods or shelves shall be a maximum of 54 inches above the finish floor for a side approach.”
Pull out shelving and roll out drawers have many benefits, including being installed in a manner that is ADA compliant, meaning greater accessibility for the elderly and disabled, as well as a potential tax deduction from Uncle Sam. When you work with ezeGlide to improve the storage and adapt your home to become more accessible, you may be eligible for a deduction from taxes due to our ADA compliant process.
Complying to ADA standards means more freedom, flexibility, and ease-of-use for people of all ages. ezeGlide roll out shelves and drawers are often installed in active senior neighborhoods and assisted living communities, where the benefits extend beyond the basics of more storage space with a higher quality product.
ezeGlide shelves and drawers provide the following for seniors and the disabled:
