Searching for a great local ADA Sign design and installation company?

.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted in 1990. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. The ADA gives civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, state and local government services, and telecommunications. This Act covers in detail almost every aspect of interior signage for all buildings that have public access.

The act was amended in 2008 along with the standards for interior signage. With recent legislation, the responsibility for enforcement has fallen to local municipalities like fire inspectors and building inspectors. Some communities have made ADA compliance a part of the process for occupancy, while others have adopted even more restrictive versions of the ADA standards. Optimum Signs understands the various codes and can help you ensure your project is in compliance.

What Are ADA Signs? – An ADA Sign is any type of signage that properly fits the necessary requirements outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act. These requirements include easily visible signage, use of legible fonts, and braille in order to make the signs both accessible and useful to as many people as possible. Signs that must comply with ADA regulations include room identification signs, informational or directional markers, and exit or entrance signs. 

Do You Need An ADA Sign? – Making the signage in your building ADA compliant can benefit your business in many ways. ADA Signs are a great way to make your product available to everyone. By following these signage regulations, it helps keep your signs completely user-friendly, allowing the blind or visually impaired to access your services with ease. In addition, by making your business more accessible, you show customers that you care about them and value their business. Finally, these regulations also help make your work environment safer by allowing people to readily locate exits and entrances in case of emergencies. 

Not sure whether or not your signs are required to meet ADA standards? Generally speaking, most indoor signage must fit ADA guidelines, however, there are a few exceptions. These exceptions include temporary signs, banners, logos, and the like.
