Fire Safety for ADA & Building Code Compliance

Department of Justice ADA Final Rule 2010

  • ASTM E84-07. 25 Flame/450 Smoke Class A Material Tested
  • ASTM E84 Is a Referenced & Adopted Standard of the International Building Code

The Department, as a member of the Access Board, was an active participant in the lengthy process of developing the 2004 ADAAG, on which the 2010 Standards are based. As part of this update, the Board has made its guidelines more consistent with model building codes, such as the IBC, and industry standards. It coordinated extensively with model code groups and standard-setting bodies throughout the process so that differences could be reconciled. As a result, an historic level of harmonization has been achieved that has brought about improvements to the guidelines, as well as to counterpart provisions in the IBC and key industry standards, including those for accessible facilities issued through the American National Standards Institute.

Building Code (IBC) Chapter 11 Accessibility.
1101.1 Scope. The provisions of this chapter shall control the design and construction of facilities for accessibility to physically disabled persons.
1101.2 Design. Buildings and facilities shall be designed and constructed to be accessible in accordance with this code and ICC A117.1.

International Building Code (IBC) 2006 Chapter 8 Interior Finishes
806.5 Material other than foam plastic used as interior trim shall have a minimum Class C flame spread and smoke –developed index when tested in accordance with ASTM E84 as described in Section 803.1. TRIM-Picture molds, chair rails, baseboards, handrails, door and window frames and similar decorative or protective material used in fixed applications. *All trim must be a minimum of Class C. Combustible trim may not exceed 10 percent of the area of the aggregate wall or ceiling area. *ICC staff opinion

Design & Construction Responsibility
Compliance with the ADA is ‘non-delegable’ in that any parties in the design and construction of a building or facility cannot ‘insulate himself from liability by relinquishing responsibility to another party.
"Everyone who participates in the design and construction of a building shares responsibility to follow the law," added Bill Lann Lee, Assistant Attorney General, US v. Days Inn, Dept of Justice Agreement.

Providing equal access means ensuring all individuals can make use of transportation, buildings and facilities, programs and services, employment opportunities, and technology. It also means offering all users the same provisions for privacy, security, and safety.
Providing equal access is required, to varying degrees, in order to meet applicable building codes, accessibility standards, and accessibility guidelines.
