ADA Compliant Window Coverings

ADA Compliant Window Treatments

If you need ADA-compliant window coverings for your Las Vegas home or business, check out the savings and selection available at Blind Wholesaler. Sometimes new construction or renovation make it necessary to re-evaluate how accessible your premises are.

We carry a wide range of commercial shades, blinds, and shutters that are or can be made ADA-compliant.

ADA Compliance For Window Coverings?

Opening and closing shutter slats, moving shades up and down, or pulling vertical blinds completely out of the way is not an easy operation for everybody. The wands, strings, and chains we rely on can be difficult to control for people with disabilities.

The ADA has three main standards for accessible blinds, shades, and shutters.

  • ADA Standard. 9.2.2(5); 4.27.4 — Window coverings must have easy-to-operate controls that do not require tight grasping, pinching, or twisting of the wrist.
  • ADA Standard. 9.2.2(5); 4.27.3 — Window shade controls should be easily placed within 54″ of the floor for side approach or 48″ of the floor for a forward approach.
  • 28 CFR 36.304(b)(4) — Window covering should be approachable and easily controlled for guests who use wheelchairs, crutches, and other mobility aids.

Accessible Brands For Blinds, Shades & Shutters

The good news is, when you work with a blinds company that offers custom options, the sky’s the limit on the types, sizes, and styles of ADA compliant blinds, shades, and shutters you have access to. We also work with a wide variety of popular window treatment brands that offer ADA models or that can make your selection compliant with modifications.

If you don’t see the brand you’re interested in on this list, give us a call to find out more about how we can modify your desired brand of blinds or shades.

Should You Go Motorized?

One of the easiest ways to make your window treatment ADA compliant is to go motorized. Automated shades, shutters, and blinds can be controlled by a wall switch, remote control, or even a smart device depending on the controls you choose. We can help you pick out and install smart shades that are ADA compliant on any window or door.
