Default star ADA vanitys

I have been working on this for some time,, The purist ADA standard is based on a wall hanging porcelain sink.. Up until a few years ago the ADA vanity as we know it used a soap dispenser which was a pump this was no problem for the Angled undermount vanity because few had to worry about the removal of the panel on any consistant basis to change the soap, when Buildings began to use the electronic dispenser this required maintenance (Low paid cleaning personnel) to have to remove the panel, Naturally this lead to damaged panels and fastners which were not made to accommodate lots of use. the star hanger is far more durable and has a life expectancy to accommodate this.

For me there is still the issue of the heavy panels being handled bay basically those who do not care to keep it from being damaged (Basially it becomes a moving part) I have recreated the ADA to use a flat front panel with access doors to prevent this. so far this vanity has passed state. local and federal inspectors. I will soon make the plans available for all to use. I have one modification to make and we are incorporating the star hanger as an installation method.

The biggest problem I run into is architects speccing sinks where the drain does not clear the panels.

You got to fight back on the sinks and work to control the setback. Plumbers do not care and more and more architects are getting burned by not specifying the ADA compliant sink.. Wilson art has made the right sink in Acrylic solid surface but I have not seen a ceramic counterpart.

on the flat panel fronts we have to scribe a small amount some times but you got to be on your hands and knees to see it..

Brian, The AWI does not endorse Products. Recently the star hanger was used on an AWI QCP project where the star hanger was submitted in Submittal drawings and satisfied the labeling as a certified AWI Job. Kip has been working on submittal shop drawings for customer use. He is at the AWI Convention in Salt lake city and will respond on his return.

OK Jim thanks.
this is a really exciting product and when it takes off will change the millworking landscape. If they could come up with a cabinet hanging version, that would be a benefit.

Kips Goal is to be the GO TO guy for this,


I have suggested using the aluminum handicap rail by notching where the end panels go and installing it similar to a long cleat, this has potential
