Learn How to Order ADA Signage & More
If you’re in the market for ADA signs, you’ve come to the right place! At Erie Custom Signs, we’re committed to providing interior ADA signage to fit every need, including custom signs. By working with us, you can look forward to getting 100% ADA-compliant signs that allow you to keep your (or your client’s) building up to code.
But more than that, you get a valuable resource for all your ADA-sign-related questions.
Why ADA Signs Are Necessary
All public U.S. buildings are required to have ADA signs per the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This federal civil rights law protects people with disabilities by prohibiting discrimination and reducing barriers to access. Signs with braille and other vital elements are only part of the equation, but they play a crucial role in the following:
- Simplifying wayfinding for those with visual impairments
- Identifying what parts of buildings are wheelchair accessible
- Providing the guidance needed to gain access easily
- Creating a safe, welcoming environment for all visitors
Every business should consider ADA signs necessary from an ethical standpoint, as they help ensure accessibility and inclusivity. But they’re also important from a legal one. If you or your client don’t install the proper building signs, the business could be found to be in noncompliance with the ADA. This could result in costly penalties from the Department of Justice, which is responsible for ADA enforcement.
Further, a lack of ADA signage can lead to a failing grade for a building inspection, damaging the business’s reputation in the process.
What to Know About Interior ADA Signage Compliance
According to the ADA National Network—which provides information, guidance, and training on the ADA—“if a sign identifies a permanent room or space of a facility, including exits, directs, or informs about functional spaces of the facility, or identifies, directs to, or informs about accessible features of the facility, it must comply.”
There is a lot to consider when it comes to ADA signage compliance, including where (exactly) signs are required, how rules vary by location, what mistakes to avoid, and more. You can find this information in the Guide to the ADA Accessibility Standards and the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, but it can be confusing.
Fortunately, the experts at Erie Custom Signs strive to simplify it all for you. We put together our own helpful guide to ADA sign specifications, so you can learn everything from requirements for braille and raised characters to proper installation.
