How to Build ADA Compliant Restaurant Bathrooms

Granite and Stainless Steel Toilet PartitionsA restaurant is one of those places where you find people from all walks of life using the same restroom.  People of all ages and people with varying levels of physical mobility, all converge in the same room.  ADA compliant restaurant bathrooms must accommodate the full range of human disabilities to provide handicapped patrons with a warm, comfortable experience.  At the same time, however, they must offer an exceptional level of aesthetic without compromising functionality for non-handicapped users.  Building such a restroom requires a blend of precision, design finesse, and guided selection of commercial restroom equipment.


The first step in the process is the take accurate measurements of the entire facility.  It is imperative to ensure that ADA and non-ADA stalls all fit within allotted space.  This is not very difficult in a new construction because you are working with open floor space and an empty vertical cube.  It becomes much more challenging in a renovation project.  Existing stalls, fixtures, and accessories work as obstruction to straight line measurements.  They also offer an optical barrier by altering the perception of available space. 


To save time, you can send in your blueprints to XPB Locker Supply.  We will analyze your floor plan and guide you through the entire process of measuring the stall areas. ADA compliant restaurant bathrooms are much easier to remodel when we know exactly how much available space to devote to stall areas.  Once these plans have been finalized, we can recommend the appropriate accessories to make the interior of the stall fully compliant with code.


Handicapped stalls should be fitted with grab bars per ADA regulations.  The type andVessel Sink Lav Deck Straight Edge length of grab bar should be determined on the basis of the type of stall we are building.  Both wheelchair accessible and ambulatory stalls should be fitted with grab bars, but the type and length of the bars often vary.  The high number of choices can be confusing when you try to think about code compliance, fitting the bar into existing stall dimensions, and choosing a model that will work with other accessories.   


It is for this reason that XPB Locker Supply helps guide both the design and product selection processes for ADA compliant restaurant bathrooms.  In addition to several lines of grab bars we can recommend, our team can help develop a list of stall accessories whose size and positioning will not crowd the space around the handrails.  


In smaller environments, there may not be much floor space or wall space after building out ADA and non-ADA toilet stalls.  Some restaurants may be tempted to find an ADA-compliant lavatory that will fit within the existing space regardless of how it appears.  While this is admirably utilitarian, it is no longer necessary.  New lavatory designs by Bradley Corporation, particularly the Frequency Line, offer a synthesis of attraction factor and superior knee clearance for wheelchair bound users. 


Combination DispenserNew lines of accessories also make it possible to make any amount of existing wall space a multi-user, comfortable experience.  With design assistance from XPB Locker Supply, combined with guided product selection that stays within budget, ADA compliant restaurant bathrooms can now be built in even the smallest of restrooms with exceptional, lasting results.
