The National Association of Accessibility Consultants (NAAC), located at 2020 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC, 20006, is an organization that specializes in ADA product certifications, and retained by US POOL LIFTS, INC. to certify their pool lift Model #US114.
Pursuant to the fact that in 2010, the Department of Justice published updated regulations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), these regulations adopted the 2010 Standards for Accessible Design (2010 Standards) which contain specific accessibility requirements for a number of types of recreational facilities, including swimming pools, wading pools, and spas.
The 2010 standards require that newly constructed or altered swimming pools, wading pools, and spas have an accessible way for people with disabilities to enter and exit the pool and provide technical specifications for when a means of entry and exit, such as a pool lift, is provided.
NAAC prepared this technical review which is limited to accessibility compliance of pool lifts under the 2010 ADA Standards. The scope of the review is limited to the review of the product itself and does not make any assertions explicit or implied in regards to the installation of the product on-site. In performing the review we rely on information and samples of the product provided by the manufacturer and we do not corroborate the information for accuracy but the information is taken for face value.
This CERTIFICATION is rendered upon review of the design criteria and results of the accessibility compliance tests performed on this specific pool lift, as noted on the findings and recommendations incorporated on the review. This ADA compliance certification has been provided in accordance with the requirements of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design.
