Braille / Handicapped / Wheelchair Signs / ADA Compliance

ADA Signs – Signs play such an important part in all of our lives. They are there to show us the way, direct our route, and give us all of the information we need when in a specific place. As signs have changed dramatically over the years, there is one type of sign that is consistently needed and always updated for compliance standards. That would be ADA signs.

In 1990 the American Disabilities Act was passed prohibiting discrimination against people with disabilities in areas such as employment, government, transportation, and public accommodation. If you have trouble walking, moving on your own, or seeing, you have as much right as anyone else to get where you want to go.

ADA signs are specifically designed to provide people with disabilities the same functionality and access to business facilities as people without those disabilities.

There are several requirements for all ADA signs:

  • ADA signs that identify rooms should be located adjacent to the rooms that they are specifying.
  • When signs are in Braille, all ADA signs require tactile lettering to assist visitors who don’t see well or don’t see at all. Braille lettering must be lowercase except for proper nouns.
  • ADA signs use only sans serif type-style.
  • ADA signs should have backgrounds and characters that are glare-proof.
  • ADA signs with visual characters such as arrows or wheelchairs should be in a light-dark contrast with a dark background and light characters.

ADA signs are required by federal law. In places with high foot traffic, ADA signs should be very visible and easy to spot by anyone. ADA signs ensure that everyone in a public area, whether they are an employee, a visitor, or a customer, share in the valuable experience that every sign in the area provides.

These signs offer custom options to keep them elevated from just a basic or standard look. Utilize the color combinations and images associated with your current brand to create a lasting impression with the information that you need relayed. Our team has your back and will get you one step closer to sign success.

We look forward to working with you.
