Accessibility Overview



By 2012, 40% of all U.S. households will be over 55 years old. According to the AARP, 89% of 50-plus American’s “intend to remain in their own homes as long as they possibly can.” So as baby-boomers continue to age, more and more people are looking for design solutions to keep their homes fully functional, safe and beautiful.

Compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1992 has made remodeling and building new bath projects more of a challenge – but it’s nothing compared with the challenges the physically impaired and elderly face every day.

That’s why at Swan we’ve used our 35 years of healthcare and commercial experience to design a full suite of products – including many ADA-compliant showers, vanity systems and barrier-free accessories – that not only make your project easier to complete, they also make life easier for those who need it most.

When you see this symbol it represents Swan products that are ADA-compliant.


ADA-Compliance

ADA Guidelines are code-specific requirements for public buildings and federally subsidized housing. They are codes and standards that benefit people with disabilities. While residential homes do not require the same specifications, many of the guidelines are worth considering for your home because they were developed to make environments more livable and user-friendly. This product meets the dimensional requirements to allow for installation in ADA applications. For up-to-date ADA regulations, visit www.ADA.gov.

Aging in Place

Essentially, Aging in Place is the ability to live in your own home comfortably and safely for as long as possible. It often involves modifying your home with products and features that will support adults as they grow older. Aging in Place is a proactive approach to home design that seeks to prevent future medical problems. So with a little up front planning, you can significantly extend the amount of time living at home with the right products.
