Handicap Sign

The Handicap sign is used to indicate that handicap facilities are available.  Handicap bathrooms generally include a bathroom door wide enough to fit a wheeled chair into the stall along with grab bars that allow for easier mobility while in the bathroom stall. There are a variety of restroom signs for handicap equipped bathrooms.  The Handicap Bathroom sign is 6" wide and 9" tall and can be mounted next to or on the bathroom door. These bathroom signs are ADA compliant and feature raised lettering and Braille. Please see figure A below.

Please check will your local municipality on the rules governing the requirement of handicap accessible facilities. The code varies between counties, cities and states so consultation with local contractors is necessary. Review the ADAAG (The Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines) listed below as a reference.

Standard toilet stalls with a minimum depth of 56 in (1420 mm) (see Fig. 30(a)) shall have wall-mounted water closets. If the depth of a standard toilet stall is increased at least 3 in (75 mm), then a floor-mounted water closet may be used. Arrangements shown for standard toilet stalls may be reversed to allow either a left- or right-hand approach. Additional stalls shall be provided in conformance with 4.22.4. Appendix Note

EXCEPTION: In instances of alteration work where provision of a standard stall (Fig. 30(a)) is technically infeasible or where plumbing code requirements prevent combining existing stalls to provide space, either alternate stall (Fig. 30(b)) may be provided in lieu of the standard stall.

4.17.4 Toe Clearances. In standard stalls, the front partition and at least one side partition shall provide a toe clearance of at least 9 in (230 mm) above the floor. If the depth of the stall is greater than 60 in (1525 mm), then the toe clearance is not required.

4.17.5* Doors. Toilet stall doors, including door hardware, shall comply with 4.13. If toilet stall approach is from the latch side of the stall door, clearance between the door side of the stall and any obstruction may be reduced to a minimum of 42 in (1065 mm) (Fig. 30). Appendix Note

4.17.6 Grab Bars. Grab bars complying with the length and positioning shown in Fig. 30(a), (b), (c), and (d) shall be provided. Grab bars may be mounted with any desired method as long as they have a gripping surface at the locations shown and do not obstruct the required clear floor area. Grab bars shall comply with 4.26.

The location of the door is to be in front of the clear space (next to the water closet), with a maximum stile width of 4 inches (100 mm). An alternate door location is illustrated to be on the side of the toilet stall with a maximum stile width of 4 inches (100 mm). The minimum width of the standard stall shall be 60 inches (1525 mm). The centerline of the water closet shall be 18 inches (455 mm) from the side wall.
