Issue: 7/01 Elkay Mfg.'s line of barrier-free coolers, called the EZ Cooler line, meets both child and adult ADA requirements, as well as satisfying ANSI/NSF 61, Section 9. In fact, the line exceeds the child and adult ADA requirements by featuring a compressed front portion with a distance between the knee clearance and the spout height of only six inches. To meet the ANSI/NSF 61 standard, the company changed the evaporator tank material from copper to stainless steel. Elkay Mfg. Co.
