ADA Restroom Signs

Benefits of ADA Restroom Signs

Clipboard icon


Under the ADA, all permanent rooms in a public facility—such as bathrooms—are required to have compliant signage in place. By purchasing and installing ADA restroom signs in your facility, you can avoid incurring fines or being hit with lawsuits.

By adding ADA restroom signs to your facility, you can create a warm, welcoming environment and show that you care about all visitors and staff members.

Clear Identification

In schools, for example, restroom signs with the appropriate male and female symbols can make identification much easier for non-English speaking individuals and younger students who are unable to read.

What characteristics should an ADA-compliant restroom sign have?

raised letter "A" icon

Raised and braille characters with pictorial symbols: All letters and numbers must be raised by 1/32 inch in upper case, be in sans serif or simple serif font types, and have Grade 2 Braille. All raised characters must be at least 5/8 inches high, but should not be any higher than 2 inches. Pictograms placed on restroom signs should also have a written description of the picture directly below it. Additionally, the border dimension of the pictogram should be at least 6 inches in height.

contrasting circle icon

Finish and contrast: The background and characters on ADA restroom signs should have matte, eggshell, or another type of non-glare finish. Symbols and characters must have a stark contrast with the background—either light characters on a dark background or vice versa. The recommended amount of contrast is 70%.

Wrench and hammer icon

Mounting specifications: If restroom signs are mounted permanently to a wall, they should be placed on the wall that is adjacent to the side of the door with the latch or handle. For double-leaf doors, signs should be mounted on the closest adjacent wall. The specific location for mounting should be 60 inches above the floor to the center of the sign. Further, the sign should be mounted in a location where anyone can approach within 3 inches of the sign without running into objects or standing in the area where the door would swing out.

Accessibility symbols: Any symbols used on restroom signs should follow the international symbol of accessibility.

California Restroom Sign Requirements: Additionally, California has its own strict guidelines for how ADA restroom signs should be designed, which is why businesses located in “The Golden State” should enlist the help of a sign fabricator familiar with the state's regulations. Click here for more specific information and guidelines on California Restroom Signs.

“We have been using Erie Custom Signs for our ADA signage needs since 2013. I can’t say enough about their entire team, everyone from sales, to the art department, to production. We have not sent them a design concept yet, where Erie said “we can’t do that”. Instead they find ways to get it done and make it happen, and within our budget. From pricing, the amzing turn around time, to the quality of the final product, you are not going to find a more professional, friendly and reliable source for your ADA signage needs, than the team at Erie.”
