What is the best type of table design for someone in a wheelchair? An oval table or one with soft edges would be great. If you can’t walk very far or use a wheelchair but want to sit in a dining chair to eat, you need to be able to get to/from the chairs with ease. So the dining chairs need to be sturdy and not easy to tip over.
How tall should a desk be for a wheelchair? An accessible table has a surface height of no more than 34 inches and no less than 28 inches above the floor. At least 27 inches of knee clearance must be provided between the floor and the underside of the table.
How wide is an ADA table? Adequate maneuvering space and items placed within reach make it possible for her to serve herself. Accessible tables must have a top height of 28″ to 34″ and knee space 27″ high by 30″ wide and 19″ deep. A 36″ diameter square table with a pedestal will not meet these requirements.
How do you make an ADA table compliant?
- Select the top row of the table and right click.
- Choose Table Properties.
- In the popup window, select the Row Tab and check “Repeat as header row at the top of each page.” Then select OK.
