The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) specifies the types of displays that certain signs have to feature. Adherence to these standards is not just a good idea; it is the law. Make a mistake here and your facility, office or store is not just unsafe for those consumers covered by the ADA, but it is also in violation of the law, which may result in heavy fines and even lawsuits. At The Sign Factory, we are well-versed with the ADA requirements.
Handicap parking signs
Made from durable aluminum, these markers show your commitment to ADA adherence. We use reflective lettering, which makes the symbol and writing on the sign easily visible during daylight and nighttime hours. Other makers that fall into this category are signs identifying van-accessible venues.
Frequently on the outside, these signs signal oncoming traffic and highlight the areas where pedestrians may cross safely. We ensure that these markers meet ADA standards, which helps to keep consumers safe while on your property’s parking lot.
The ADA specifies that certain interior signs must feature Grade II Braille. Do you know which markers are exempt? We do. For those that are mandated to feature this addition, they also must display sans serif characters of a specified height that are set against a contrasting color background. The finish of the markers must prevent glare from overhead or natural lights. Last, but not least, there are regulations that spell out the mounting heights of these signs.
