    Is anyone aware of a standard or guideline regarding force required to open a door?  Speciic situation is a side-hinged double-door in a commercial setting with one-hand door handle.  Thanks in advance for any assistance.



    Hi – The attached document is from the Florida Building Code – the ADA section of the code having to do with doors .The answer you need is at the top of the second page – hope this helps
