Our expert engineers have deep experience with ICC/ANSI A117.1, a code that focuses on specific parts of an accessible plumbing fixture to ensure ease of use for those with limited or impaired physical abilities. Independent testing by Home Innovation Labs to this code not only provides you with confidence in your products’ accessible attributes, but also minimizes your customers’ likelihood of getting held up during the inspection process – which increases their confidence and loyalty to your products.
The Home Innovation has over 20 years of experience evaluating and certifying product compliance with the accessibility standard. Critical dimensions of each unit and the structural strength of grab bars and seats are included in each evaluation. In addition, units are tested for compliance with the CSA B45.5/IAPMO Z124 standard for plastic bathtub or shower units, and can be tested for slip resistance at the manufacturers’ request.
