ADA compliance is a set of rules set up in 1990 by the US government. These rules define criteria that account for the safety of any public walkway- such as height differentials, length and width of the panels, where railings need to be, the slope of ramps, when passing space must be used, and other similar measurement data. Though these rules wer eput in play mostly to ensure those with disabilities have safe passage, they also ensure the safety of anyone using them, Failure to meet the criteria can result in fines, and or people being hurt.
