Milgard adds to its ADA-compliant doors lineup

Tacoma, Wash.-based Milgard Windows & Doors has introduced Fiberglass ADA French Doors, providing a solution to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliancy throughout a project. 

"The idea for this door came from our customers. They were looking for an ADA door that had the aesthetics of a traditional door and could match the color and style of our standard windows and doors," said Jim Sheehan, product manager for Milgard. "This door helps eliminate a barrier in buildings for people with disabilities and gives the ability to have matching ADA and non-ADA doors throughout the project."

Milgard is known for its popular door models, such as the WoodClad and Ultra Series In-swing and Out-swing Doors. This nearly identical door meets ADA requirements with a 32-in. clear opening, 10-in. bottom rail and 1/2-in. sill for universal access. It is sold as a complete pre-hung door system.

The ADA Fiberglass Door is available in all fiberglass Essence, WoodClad and Ultra Series exterior colors. This makes it easy to use both standard and ADA doors in the same project and achieve a similar look, the company said.

Milgard is a division of Taylor, Mich.-based Masco Corp.
