If you’ve overlooked the need for ADA signage so far, don’t worry, you wouldn’t be the only business owner who was unaware of the need for compliance while preparing for their grand opening.
No matter your industry, it’s essential to ensure that those with disabilities can read and understand all the information needed for your business to be accessible to them.
All Businesses Need ADA Signage
The Americans with Disabilities Act is a federal law that was passed in 1990 that requires all businesses to ensure that disabled people have access to services and products. This means that businesses are obligated to create and place signs that comply with all federal regulations.
In addition, many states enact laws that go beyond federal standards regarding ADA signage. This is why it can be extremely helpful for businesses to work with a local sign manufacturer — we are well aware of local code standards.
What Standards Are Required?
Public buildings must label all permanent rooms with compliant signs. Examples of a permanent room, or a room that cannot easily change its function, includes kitchens, electrical rooms and restrooms.
What constitutes an ADA-compliant sign? It must be in sans serif font. The type can’t be too large or too small. The sign itself must be hung at a specific height. It must also have the information in Braille. From fabrication to installation, placing ADA signage can be a project, but it’s one that’s will be done right if you have Precision Sign & Graphics on your side.
