When upgrading a Free Air Dispenser at an Existing Retail Convenience Store to a different make and model dispenser, is it a requirement to make all elements of the dispenser accessible? Would this include the path to the machine, the accessible aisles, and the site conditions at the machine?

If it is a free air dispenser:

The controls must comply with reach range and operation forces.

The dispenser must be on an accessible route to the “parking space”

There must be a compliant clear floor ground space.

The “parking space” should slope no more than 2%.

The access aisle should slope no more than 2% and be a minimum 60″ wide.

An accessible route from the air dispenser to the store is not required.
