The handicap striping in your parking lot is governed by both federal & state codes, and understanding those codes can get tricky at times. Allow empire to help you get your handicap striping up to date in your parking lot; we understand all of the complexities of markings and dome placement because we have been doing it for over 25 years. Whether it's your accessible parking spaces, van access spaces, or paths of travel, we understand the laws that pertain to your ADA parking lot markings.
In a nutshell accessible parking refers to parking stalls that provide adequate space for persons with disabilities. This includes individuals who require wheelchairs and need space to freely exit the vehicle into the parking lot.
Each area of your parking lot is required to provide accessible parking, and it's required to be placed in the area that makes it most convenient for disabled people.
Depending on the size of your parking lot, there is a specific number of disabled parking spaces that you're legally required to provide. That required number of spaces is then broken down into the number of standard vs. van accessible spaces. So by example, if you have 150 parking spaces in your lot, you would be required to provide 6 standard handicap stalls, and 1 van accessible stall.
