Description

Access to kitchens and kitchenettes is the subject of many technical inquiries received by the U.S. Access Board. This webinar will review scoping and technical requirements for kitchens and kitchenettes in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) Accessibility Standards. Presenters will use illustrations and diagrams and discuss how various specifications apply and relate to each other, including those for clear floor space and turning space, required clearances at fixtures and appliances, work surfaces, and storage. Presenters will also address frequently asked questions and common sources of confusion concerning accessible kitchens and kitchenettes.
