ADA Gates are swinging gates that adhere to the standards set by the Americans with Disabilities Act. ADA Gates require a minimum opening of 32” to provide unobstructed access to people with disabilities. But for easier maneuverability and functionality, a 36” opening is recommended. Facilities installing new turnstiles will usually install a matching ADA Gate as part of a complete system. ADA Gates come in a variety of styles and options depending on the level of security required. Basic models are waist high, self-closing and swing one or two ways. Premium models offer motorized opening and closing options for ease of use. Hayward Turnstiles offers aesthetically pleasing ADA Gates that can be easily paired with our waist high turnstile models.
