Architectural barrier

An architectural barrier is something physical that prevents a building or site from being accessible to all people. An architectural barrier could prevent a person with a disability from getting in the door—an example of this would be steps at an entrance. It could also prevent a person with a disability from using certain features of the building or site. Examples of features are service counters, bathrooms, and drinking fountains.
