What is the ANSI recommendation for the distance between the actuator and the door opening?

The ANSI 156.19 standard states (in appendix A-5 Knowing Act Switches) that wall actuators are to have an installation height of a minimum of 34" and a maximum of 48" (center of the switch) off the finished floor, and preferably located within 1' to 5' from the door, but never more than 12'.
