  1. According to American Disabilities act (ADA), the exterior and interior doors of building should be accessible for disable person. If any building owner violates the act, civil penalties are applicable. So in every building, this act is maintained strictly. That\’s why door pressure gauge is used to measure the force of opening the door. CRL door pressure gauge is very easy to install and very convenient to use as this is a pocket size device.
