    ADA acutuators

    New postPosted: Wed Apr 25, 2012 4:29 pm

    What is the required clearance from the door for an ada compliant automatic door actuator?

    I have found the height and reach requirements but not the distance from the door opening. I am assuming one on each side and the actuator must be clear of swing of the door but is there anything else> Thanks

    I haven't found specific location requirements for the actuator (typically a large flat push button/circular plate), but in addition to the height and reach requirements, and being clear of the door swing, the actuator would need to be located so it could be activated from wheelchair on a level landing, which would typically be 60" by 60", and the actuator would need to be placed so it could be reached from that location.
