What Is an ADA Shower & Its Purpose?

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 is a civil rights law commonly known as ADA that stipulates that any public or commercial building must comply with ADA requirements and be accessible to those with disabilities. That means ADA showers and restrooms are those designed to be easily usable by those with physical impairments.

It is important for any type of special event or gathering to have handicapped or wheelchair-accessible facilities for visitors, participants, and guests. The most common benefits of a mobile ADA restroom and shower include:

  • ADA Wheelchair Ramps & Landings
  • ADA Private Shower, Dressing Rooms, & Sink
  • On-Demand Hot Water
  • Outside Hand Washing Sinks & Covered Waiting Areas
  • Hands-Free Pedal Flush Toilets
  • Handrails
  • Interior & Exterior Lighting
  • Air Conditioning & Heat

These clean and modern facilities help those with disabilities feel more confident, safe, and secure when they are in need of a shower. That is why it isn’t uncommon to see them not only at weekend festivals and special events but also during disaster relief missions and other situations where people will need to get cleaned on a regular basis.
