Benefits of ADA Name Insert Signs

Spaces that have been designated for specific employees must be marked with ADA-compliant signage. Installing ADA name insert signs helps ensure compliance so you can avoid costly fines and lawsuits.

Though it may seem like a minor improvement, adding such signs to your facility can go a long way toward creating a warm, welcoming, and inclusive environment for both visitors and staff with visual impairments.

Clear Identification

ADA signs with name inserts make it clear that a room or office belongs to a particular employee. All visitors and staff members can identify these spaces more easily and determine whether they’re in the right place.

Having replaceable ADA name insert signs in your facility is an affordable option, as you won’t have to invest in brand-new signage every time there’s a change in staff. Instead, you can just swap out the name insert.

What Characteristics Should an ADA-Compliant Name Insert Sign Have?

Raised letter "A" icon

Raised letters and numbers: Based on ADA guidelines, name insert displays should have raised, tactile letters and numbers.

More specifically, tactile text should be raised by 1/32 inch. These raised characters must be at least 5/8 inches high but no higher than 2 inches.

Hand reading braille icon

Braille lettering: Per ADA guidelines, words and numbers should be accompanied by Grade 2 domed or rounded braille.

There are some specific braille dimensions that must also be met, including 1.5 mm to 1.6 mm dot base diameter and 0.6 mm to 0.9 mm dot height.

Sans serif font: According to the ADA, characters must be in a sans serif font such as Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, or Futura.

Characters should not be italic, oblique, script, highly decorative, or have any other unusual forms. Additionally, all characters must be in uppercase.

contrasting circles icon

Finish and contrast: ADA name insert signs should have a non-glare finish. There must also be a high level of contrast (70% is recommended) between the characters and background.

This can be achieved using light characters on a dark background or vice versa.

Hammer and wrench icon

Mounting specifications: For ADA name insert signs, tactile characters must be located between 48 and 60 inches above the finish floor or ground surface, measured from the baseline of the highest tactile character.

Clearance should allow anyone to approach within 3 inches.

“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.”
