From turning space to clearance around toilets and showers, there are many practical considerations that need to be included in any ADA bathroom layout.
For a wheelchair to make a 180 degree turn within the bathroom, there needs to be a circular clear floor space that’s at least 60 inches in diameter.
Clear Floor Space
There needs to be clear floor space to allow for either a parallel or forward approach for each element in the bathroom. For a forward approach, this would be 30 inches wide by 48 inches deep. For a parallel approach, this would be 48 inches wide by 30 inches deep.
Knee and Toe Space
- Knee Space; is 27 inches from the finished floor height.
- Toe Space; is 9 inches from the finished floor height.
The commodes must be installed 16 – 18 inches from the side of the wall.
The sinks are to be no higher than 34 inches from the finished floor height and at least 17 inches from the back of the wall.
Clearance for Water Closets
There needs to be a clear floor space of at least 56 inches from the back wall and at least 60 inches from the side wall for your ADA bathrooms.
In front of the bathtub, there needs to be a clear floor space of at least 30 inches that extends the entire length of the bathtub.
