Inclusive ADA Signs For Your Business

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) aims to make all public places easily accessible to individuals with disabilities. The act covers a variety of permanent signage on a business property that has to be in line with ADA guidelines. Since these signs have a specific purpose, you need experts in the field for design and fabrication.

Look for professionals that offer these products. They will not only provide you with design options but also will plan and design the sign well, making sure it’s in line with ADA requirements. These signs make wayfinding easy and various areas of a property more accessible for everyone.

Where You Need ADA Signs

As mentioned earlier, the signs are primarily made for wayfinding, and they help people easily navigate through a property. You can use them in various locations such as:

Restroom sign
ADA signs are crucial in any building.
  • Entrances and Exits – All the entry and exit points on a business’ premises need to be marked very clearly
  • Permanent Rooms and Offices – All permanent rooms, including offices, closets, and mechanical spaces must be marked with room identification (names are not necessary and can be displayed in a paper insert or other means)
  • Elevators – Elevators need clearly marked ADA compliant signs too. These show where differently-abled individuals can go when they need to move between floors
  • Facilities – Place ADA Signs to direct people towards facilities, such as restrooms

ADA Signs Can Enhance Your BRAND!

In the world of ADA Signs, there are two generally approved techniques – photopolymer and layered acrylic with raster beads. Each manufacturing method has benefits and preferred application uses. That is where your sign consultant comes in.

Acrylic Layering

This sign type is best for protected settings such as hospitals, high-end offices with specialty finishes, and clinics. Acrylic signs with raised text applied to a sign face and the raster fit method of braille provide a cost effective sign solution. There are many laminate choices and painting options that will effectively bring sites into ADA compliance. The challenge is presented by patrons. The laminates can be picked at, letters rearranged, or the raster beads (used for braille) can be removed with some effort. Additionally, if you are in the budgeting process, the names of your rooms may impact price. If exact room names haven’t been determined, there may be a price change when final design packages are approved. The more acrylic required for the lettering, the higher the cost.

Photopolymer

This is the best sign type for high traffic unprotected environments, schools, public buildings where there may be a degree of vandalism. While there are fewer first surface laminate options, there are thousands of paint options, digital print backgrounds, and first/second layer applications to make these signs special and unique. The initial price of purchase can be a little more, but the longevity of the sign usually offsets it.

Branding

So what does material selection have to do with branding? The reality is most ADA signs can be done using either method. The DESIGN is what sets you apart. These little signs are required – you can’t get around them. However, you can make the most of them by throwing your logo in the corner, adding a second-surface digital print to color code floors or add a splash of color to the background, and even better you can add layers to turn your sign into viewing pleasure. The only limits to customizing your ADA sign package are design and budget.
