Do you need custom ADA signs?
Not all signs need to be ADA compliant. Building addresses, directories, parking signs and rooms that change function for instance are not covered by the ADA. Permanent rooms and spaces in business properties do need to have ADA compliant signs.
The guidelines have been revised several times and are far from simple. There are rules for the height of signs relative to the floor, distance from doors, luminous markings (varies by state).
With fines of up to $75,000 for violation, ADA signage is not something you want to get wrong.
What is the ADA?
ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) regulations make it easier and safer for people with disabilities to navigate their way around commercial buildings. ADA compliant signs help disabled people to identify signage with braille, bold lettering and high contrast, among other things.
Common Questions About Custom ADA Signs
Do I need to update my signs sine the ADA rules updated in 2012?
You do not need to make any changes to your signs if they already comply with the 1991 standards. If your facilities are updated then you will need to update your signs to the latest regulations. For advice on this give us a call.
Can I add a logo to my signs?
Yes you can! We have designed custom ADA signs with logos on for clients in the past.
Do ADA signs have to include braille?
No, not all signs needbraille or tactile lettering. These include all outdoor signs, building addresses, directories, parking signs and temporary signs (for use of 7 days or less). ADA signs that designate rooms that are considered “permanent” must have braille, as must exit signs, refuse signs and signs identifying floors in buildings.
Can an ADA sign have a number instead of a room name?
In some circumstances yes. Rooms that change function can be identified by numbers or letters, however, rooms that are not likely to change function such as restrooms, kitchens and elevators should be identified with a name.
Can you add braille to signs?
Yes we can.
Where Are ADA Exit Signs Required?
In short, anywhere there is an exit. ADA regulations state that any “means of egress” must be indicated.”
