Tensator Celebrates the 24th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act

awd

Just this past month, the United States celebrated the 24th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

This landmark law significantly improved American society for people with disabilities by prohibiting discrimination towards those with disabilities, and guaranteeing equal opportunities in employment, State and local government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, and transportation. The ADA also provides for making sure that people with disabilities have the same capabilities to access the places and items they need to be able to reach – helping blind and visually impaired users and people who use wheelchairs better navigate their world.

Whether you are a school, bank, event venue or transportation hub — Tensator’s guidance solutions can help ensure Path of Travel Accessibility requirements are code and American Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant. Tensator’s TensaGuide Advance Dual Line and Heavy Duty Dual Line stanchions help physically challenged people move safely through their environment and our wide selection of signs and accessories will help ensure you have adequate signage wherever needed.

Providing safe passage and clear guidance is not only critical to meeting the code and preventing expensive litigation – it’s a subject near and dear to Tensator’s heart – having been the leader in the queue management space – guiding people safely and intelligently on their journeys for over 130 years.
