There are some things that make putting together a properly sized and structured parking lot a lot easier than it sounds. While many large commercial properties are able to handle parking lots of varying sizes without any trouble, smaller lots can be problematic for multiple reasons. Some require more than others, some involve more work than others and some are extremely sensitive to changes in weather or construction. Working with a professional parking lot striping contractor will ensure that your project goes off without a hitch.
The minimum number of required parking spaces will vary greatly from site to site, so it’s best to work with an experienced company like Atlantic Southern Paving & Sealcoating who knows all the details of ADA parking space requirements in Florida as well as nationally for our national parking lot maintenance program. This type of specialist is also familiar with the minimum number of accessible parking spaces required by law and can help you determine what those numbers are. You may need more than one ADA parking space for loading and unloading vans, along with flexible spaces for oversized items such as motor scooters and wheelchairs. Even if your current needs do not call for more than three wheelchair spaces, you should still hire a professional who can create a parking lot design plan that will meet your needs. Having an accurate number of required spaces is important because it helps the contractor develop a custom plan that meets your needs while providing ample space for your business needs.
The thing that a professional parking lot striping expert can help you with is making sure your project complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The law requires all publicly accessible areas to have two wheelchair-accessible parking spaces for every hundred feet of sidewalk or street. Although many local governments have adopted specific guidelines on how many accessible parking spaces must be available, the individuals with disabilities act requires that at least two of those spaces are clearly marked and easy to find. Your chosen professional can help you ensure your project complies with the act.
The thing that ensures proper ADA compliance is to make sure the space is level. Although most individuals with disabilities are able to negotiate stairways and down elevators, others may need a lift. To meet the guidelines of the law, your parking lot will need to provide a consistent level of access. Depending on the size of your building, you may need between three and seven accessible floor levels. Having consistent floors ensures that no individual with a disability gets stuck between levels.
The thing your parking spaces specialist can help you with is determining the required number of wheelchair spaces, along with other products that are necessary to provide ADA compliance. Some buildings are required to provide three handicap accessible parking spaces for every 100 feet of sidewalk or street, whereas others may be able to go up to five wheelchair spaces per floor. Having the correct number of wheelchair spaces and other products ensures proper ADA compliance.
ADA parking lot striping is the most effective way to provide ADA compliance. It helps you improve your property’s marketability, as well as providing a safe and accessible entrance for people who have disabilities. You will need to work closely with your building’s ADA consultant to determine what type of ADA accessible entrance would work best in your space. If you’re not sure, then talk to an ADA compliance specialist for advice. They can make all the arrangements that are required to ensure proper ADA compliance.
