ADA Compliance regarding radiators and hot piping?

Hello all,
I can't seem to find anything referencing protection against scald/burns from hot pipes or radiators in the Americans with Disabilities Act regulations but I'm thinking there has to be a Code or protocol for this somewhere. I'm told there is an ADA directive for insulating hot pipes under sinks but I can't even find that.
If you know of any code that discusses this, please let me know. It's important to a client of mine.
Best to all,

    As far as I’m aware nothing. 
    I’ll check with others that are more up to date.

    Even if it isn't technically suggested in the guidelines, some sort of screened enclosure in public areas would probably be a great idea.

    Yes! And I'd love to find a screened enclosure for a vertical riser for this purpose.

    In a modern building everything would be required to be insulated as far as pipe goes must be in the energy or building code. As far as radiation i don't know

    I had assumed this is a riser used for heating, otherwise why not just insulate and enclose it.

    The guideline to insulate under sink plumbing is around page 172.

    I’m not sure about other hot surfaces but it seems like it must be in there somewhere.
