  1. John Rickert says:

    Various manufacturers of double drinking fountains position the units tight to each other without regard to the front approach clearance of 30 inches by 48 inches (Figure 305.5 of the 2010 Standards). Has there been an interpretation that allows this condition to be accepted by all enforcing agencies?
