In our business, we are frequently asked to provide ADA compliance certification concerning our closer hinge products. ADA compliance is extremely important for commercial buildings, as well as our manufacturing philosophy. To that end, we rigorously test our products using a door pressure gauge to ensure ADA force and speed requirements. [See pressure gauge in use here] Therefore, using Waterson hinges will ensure that you meet ADA guidelines.

That said, the ADA does not offer testing or certification. In fact, the ADA Center merely provides technical assistance, training, education, and written materials regarding the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA does not certify products. The only way to assess compliance with the design standards is to do so after the element or product is installed.

For further information on the ADA guidelines, please feel free to contact Waterson by phone at 770.343.2788, or contact ADA Technical Assistance Specialists on their toll-free hotline at 1-800-949-4232.
