We care about making Zenbooths accessible to everyone ♿︎
Aspects of the Zenbooth have been intentionally designed with American Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance in mind.
Our Solo and Duo booths have ADA-focused features (door, handle, low step-over entrance, and more) but neither of these booths have enough interior space to accommodate the ADA's wheelchair turn radius requirement. The only Zenbooth that does have enough space for the wheelchair turn radius, and is fully ADA compliant, is the Zenbooth Quad.
Here are some specific compliance requirements if you’d like to learn more about the details:
- 404.2.5 of the ADA required unmodified door thresholds to be a maximum of 1/2". Our door thresholds are exactly 1/2".
- 404.2.3 of the ADA requires doors to have an opening of at least 32". Zenbooths have a 36" wide door frame, and therefore meet this requirement.
- The booths can be easily moved without re-leveling to meet any accessibility requirements for walkways.
- The Zenbooth Quad has a 7ft turning circle.
- An optional 10" kickplate on the Zenbooth Quad door can be added for a $200 charge.
The Zenbooth Quad is our most accessible booth and is designed with certain aspects of the American Disabilities Act (ADA) in mind.
§203.9 of the ADA states that "employee work areas...shall be designed & constructed so that individuals with disabilities can approach, enter, and exit the...work area." We have designed the Quad to adhere to this guideline wherever possible.
- §304 of the ADA states that turning space shall either be "a space of 60 inches diameter minimum" OR " a T-shaped space within a 60 inch square minimum." The Zenbooth Quad meets both of these standards.
- §404.2.5 of the ADA state, "Thresholds...shall be 1/2 inch (13mm) high maximum." The threshold of the Zenbooth Quad, and all Zenbooth products, is 1/2".
- §404.2.3 of the ADA states, door openings "shall provide a clear width of 32 inches (815mm) minimum." The door width on the Zenbooth Quad is 36".
- §309.4 of the ADA states, "Operable parts shall be operable with one hand and shall not require tight grasping, pinching, or twisting of the wrist. The force required to activate operable parts shall be 5 pounds maximum." The door handle on the Zenbooth Quad meets both requirements, and requires less than 5 pounds of force to open.
- §404.2.8.2 of the ADA states that doors "shall be adjusted so that from the open position of 70 degrees, the door or gate shall move to the closed position in 1.5 seconds minimum." The spring-hinged door on the Zenbooth Quad meets this requirement.
