ADA signs aren’t just a legal requirement; they show consumers you care about inclusivity and making your business accessible to all. Adding ADA elements to your wayfinding and directional signs means that anyone can easily navigate your shop, store, restaurant, or professional office. While there are specific requirements for ADA signs, there are plenty of ways to infuse your brand aesthetic. Here’s what you need to include in custom ADA signs and how you can give all signs your brand stamp of approval.
ADA Sign Requirements
Every business and industry needs ADA-compliant signs should incorporate ADA-compliant elements into directional and wayfinding sign strategies. Some requirements that you need to consider are:
- Font size
You can also choose to incorporate tactile elements, like braille. Room identification signs, elevators, or signs leading to emergency exits or stairs are common places where you may be required, or choose, to include braille.
Required ADA Signs
Some ADA signs are required both inside and outside your business. Places like parking lots, restrooms, room numbers, floor numbers, important areas like dressing rooms, conference rooms, classrooms, and hospital rooms all need ADA-compliant signs.
Custom ADA Signs
A bathroom sign must be ADA-compliant but can still reflect your brand’s shape, size, colors. You can design the restroom imagery in a consistent style with other branding and still be ADA-compliant. The same is true for other signs, like room-identifying signs. As long as the sign is visible, legible, and placed correctly, you have creative control over the rest. When it comes to ADA signs, we can custom fabricate and print any sign style to your exact specification. If you need help creating the final design, we can help with that, too.
