For safety purposes, it is important to be able to access every room in the home. The average door width in a residential home is 32.” Although this is ADA compliant, it is still a tight squeeze for a wheelchair to pass through. One way of addressing this problem is to replace the hinges on doors in the home with Offset door hinges. The benefit of an offset hinge is that when the door is fully open, it will be flush with the wall. This gives two to three more inches of space for easier wheelchair access.
