Most Buildings Require ADA Compliant and Grade II Braille Signage
Let Us Help You Get Your Building Up to Code
ADA Compliant Signage – In terms of signage, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, provides specific requirements for certain types of both interior and exterior signage. Character height must be sized according to the viewing distance from which they are to be read; typestyle must be sans serif with contrasting colors (light characters on a dark background or vice versa); signs must have a non-glare finish; mounting location and height is specific to the type of sign and symbols may be required to accompany text. For more information, please visit ADA Accessibility Guidelines.
Grade II Braille – In addition to following the ADA sign guidelines, there are many types of interior signs that also require the addition of Braille (raised dots that accompany the tactile text of the sign). Raised letters or numbers with corresponding Brailled characters (and sometimes pictograms) are required for many permanent signs, such as restrooms, exit, exit route and room signs, stairways and handicap access, in buildings where the public has general access. Each state may also have additional signage requirements for use of Braille. For more information on CA requirements, please visit the California Access Compliance Reference Manual.
