ADA Compliant Signs

No matter what type of property you own or manage, it is important to have ADA compliant signs properly displayed around your building. The regulations for these signs were put into place by The American Disabilities Act of 1991 which states that handicap signage must be placed around businesses, schools, and other organizations that are open to the public.

All of our disabled signs are available as either framed or unframed signs, and you can choose the size, style, and color. Although some of the stylistic decisions regarding these signs are up to you, the property owner, there are some strict regulations that you need to keep in mind when it comes to displaying them.

Here is a quick reference for installation of ADA Compliant Signs:

The sign should be between 48″ to 60” up from the floor on the doorknob side. It is recommended that the sign should be at least 2” away from the door.

 Note: This location is based on the federal ADA law. Check your state and local laws to see if you need to match a different standard.

When it comes to ADA compliant signs, there are a lot of options to choose from and many that are required depending on the layout of your building. For example, if you have stairs, elevators, or both in your property, you need clear signs to let people know where they are. We can also create signs to make people aware of specific rooms in your building including cafeterias, restrooms, and more.

In addition to standard signs that alert visitors to the layout of your building, we also offer more specialized options including handicap accessible restroom signs, assistive listening device signs, and signs that specify what to do in the event of a fire. These signs may tell visitors to use or not use stairs if they detect a fire, as well as point them in the direction of the nearest exit.

Having ADA compliant signs in your building is very important when it comes to the safety of all of your visitors, whether or not they are handicapped. By taking advantage of our services, you can rest easy knowing that your building is properly marked and as safe as possible.
