Today, somebody found this site by searching for “fair housing act curb on shower”. In the spirit of Carnac the Magnificent, I will attempt to divine the question based simply on this query.
Oooooommmmm, OOOOOOOmmmmmm, UUUUhhhhhhhh….I mean , OOOOOOOmmmmmm
“In a dwelling unit, subject to the Fair Housing Act Design Requirements, can a shower have a curb?”
Great question! Yes, a shower may have a curb of any height. In covered dwelling units, you are only required to provide a clear floor space at the shower; there are no prohibitions or specifications for curbs.
If you are designing a Type A unit, then either an accessible shower or bathtub is required. If you choose to make the shower accessible, you will be limited to a 1/2″ high curb.
I hope that adequately questions the answer that you were seeking.
