Where Will You Find ADA Compliant Signage?

By |

When it comes to compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), one of the most important things an organization needs to look at is its signage. With more than 2 million legally blind individuals residing in the United States, and many more experiencing varying degrees of impaired vision, the need for accessibility is critical.

As a general rule, you’re likely to find ADA compliant signage just about everywhere, because ADA regulations state that permanent rooms and spaces—those whose functions are not liable to change any time soon—must have signs that are accessible to those with impaired vision. Here are some of the places you’re most likely to encounter ADA-compliant signage:

 ADA compliance is not limited to the inclusion of Braille on a sign. There are additional requirements related to font, color, character size and other factors that must be taken into account. After all, blindness is not the only form of vision impairment, and not all blind individuals read Braille.

At the end of the day, businesses and organizations need to ensure that their signage is ADA-compliant in order to better serve their employees, customers and other visitors. Placing ADA-compliant signage in your space because it’s technically required should be less of a priority than doing so because it’s courteous and thoughtful and allows everyone to feel welcome and comfortable. To learn more about your options when it comes to ADA-compliant signage, contact Erie Custom Signs today.
