In Hallways and Doorways

In hallways and doorways, creating clear, unobstructed openings that a person in a wheelchair or with a cane can pass through easily. Create entryways and hallways with a 32-inch clearance. Ensure that thresholds are level with the floor. Install secure carpets or runners in hallways or stairwells to provide traction, and install handrails for gripping.
