Bathroom stall doors are typically installed in tight spaces that need exact measurements and limited tolerances for ADA bathroom stall door requirements.  For example, a typical bathroom stall door can be 34” wide and 1 ¾” thick, which theoretically provides 32 ¼” clearance and can meet the minimum 32” ADA code requirement. However, there are times when installers or door and frame manufacturers cause a loss of space that can lead to the required ADA 32” swing clearance being compromised, which ultimately causes no code ADA compliance.

At the same time, architects frequently seek self-closing functionality.  Doors without self-closing functions can easily remain open, and opened bathroom doors can cause challenges for disabled individuals who need to navigate toward an open stall.  Opened stall doors are also not very aesthetically pleasing, particularly in higher-end commercial establishments.
