Installing synthetic turf in commercial or residential common areas requires special consideration. Private residences avoid the obligation to comply with Americans with Disability Act (ADA) requirements. Public areas of commercial buildings or multi-family residences aren’t as lucky. If you’re installing synthetic turf in these instances, you’ll need synthetic turf supplies that meet ADA requirements.
What is the ADA?
The ADA promotes equal access and eliminates discrimination against people with disabilities. The ADA provides guidelines for commercial and public spaces, including outdoor spaces, to ensure that people with disabilities can navigate these with ease. It does not apply to privately-owned single-family dwellings.
If you are using synthetic turf in common areas, you must comply with ADA guidelines to ensure that the space promotes inclusivity and accessibility. Keep these in mind as you design, source materials, and install the turf.
What Synthetic Turf Supplies Offer Compliance?
When it comes to synthetic turf supplies, particularly turf edging, specific features and characteristics contribute to ADA compliance. Wonder Edge offers synthetic turf edging in a low-profile option that meets ADA guidelines. This innovative turf edging system provides a seamless transition between the turf and other surfaces, ensuring the turf-covered area is a safe and accessible environment.
Wonder Edge low-profile synthetic grass edging is only ¼” high. Changes in vertical height of 6 mm or less (that’s ¼ inch here in the US) don’t require special edge treatment.
So, install the turf, tuck the edge into the Wonder Edge slot, nail in place, and you’re compliant in regards to transition. Read the entire Technical Bulletin.
