How Many Handicap Parking Spaces do I Need on my Parking Lot?

September 25th, 2013 | Posted in Pavement Marking | No Comments

Handicap Parking SpacesAccording to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a business must provide accessible-parking spaces for handicapped people, and the number of spaces needed depends on the total of the parking stalls on the property. With Carolina Surface Coatings parking lot striping service, you receive the most comprehensive knowledge of ADA regulations in the area.

At least one handicap-parking space in each parking lot must be accessible by vans, and when a lot has more than eight accessible spaces, one of every eight of those spaces must be accessible by vans.

Parking lots with spaces for up to 25 cars need only one handicap-parking stall, but that space must be accessible by vans. Lots with 26 to 50 spaces need 2 handicap stalls, 51 to 75 spaces require 3 handicap stalls and 76 to 100 spaces need 4 ADA stalls. Parking areas accommodating 101 to 150 cars need to have 5 handicap spaces, 151 to 200 spaces require 6 handicap stalls and 201 to 300 spaces need 7 ADA stalls. In lots with 301 to 400 parking spaces, 8 of those spaces must be accessible for handicapped people, and 9 spaces in lots for 401 to 500 cars need to be reserved for handicapped people. In parking lots with 501 to 1000 spaces, 2 percent of the spaces must be handicap accessible, and lots for 1001 or more cars must have 20 handicap spaces with 1 extra space for each additional 100 cars.

It is my great pleasure to highly recommend Todd Shook and his outstanding team of experienced professionals at Carolina Surface Coatings. We were seriously considering resurfacing our entire parking lot before meeting with CSC. Todd explained how we could get a few more years of service from our surface for a much smaller investment in repair and maintenance. The project went smoothly, and everyone at CSC was a pleasure to work with. Our parking lot looks great, and we saved many thousands of dollars! - Dave D’Elia, General Manager, Residence Inn by Marriott, Spartanburg
