Plan-1B: 2004 ADAAG Minimum with Out-swinging Door
7'-0" X 5'-0" - 35.00 Square Feet
This plan shows a typical example of a single-user toilet room that meets the minimum requirements of the 2004 ADAAG. Features include: five foot minimum width between the side wall of the water closet and the lavatory; 60 inch minimum circular wheelchair turning space; and 36 inch by 48 inch clear maneuvering space for the out-swinging entry door. The 2004 ADAAG requires a floor clearance at a water closet that is a minimum of 60 inches wide by 56 inches deep regardless of approach, section 604.3.1. Except in residential dwelling units, no other plumbing fixtures can be located in this clear space, section 604.3.2. The 2004 ADAAG, at section 304.3, allows the turning space to extend into toe and knee space provided beneath fixtures and other elements, section 304.3. Required maneuvering space for the entry door (inside the room) must be clear of all fixtures. If the door had both a closer and latch then additional space would be required to the latch side, section 404.2.4.1 and Figure 404.2.1 (c). This layout is three point five percent (3.5%) smaller than the accompanying Plan-1A: 1991 Standards Minimum with Out-swinging Door example.
