ADA Height & Government Compliance
Under Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act, countertops in public accommodations may not exceed 34" in height. In order for a typical appliance to fit under a lower counter, it must be no higher than 32 or 32.5"" (as the countertop itself is usually another 1.5"- 2"). ADA compliant SUMMIT products--including refrigerators, freezers, ice makers, and dishwashers--are 32" or 32.5" high, enabling them to fit in public accommodations that must comply with ADA guidelines, as well as assisted living facilities that require ADA accessibility.
