    What Is an ADA Sign?

    These are signs you can find, both indoors and outdoors, that help a business stay compliant with The Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990. They are required at almost every commercial establishment to ensure that visitors with differences in ability are able to navigate a space safely and easily.

    ADA signs must follow specific design guidelines, including:

    • Size of lettering
    • Font type
    • Non-glare finish
    • Height above the ground
    • Braille lettering

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the purpose of the ADA?

    The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is the leading federal legislation on accessibility in the United States. Its ultimate purpose is to make spaces safe and accessible for people with visual, auditory, cognitive, and mobility disabilities.

    The ADA prescribes that certain types of signs must be installed on commercial property; for instance, the blue and white wheelchair signs.

    Where are ADA signs required?

    ADA signs must be installed at the premises of most commercial establishments that receive visitors regularly. ADA signs are required at:

    • Spaces that serve the same function for more than seven days (such as break rooms and bathrooms).
    • Accessible parking spaces.
    • Anywhere that needs safety signs.

    Talk to us to find out where else you need ADA signs.

    Why is ADA compliance important?

    The ADA endeavors to make spaces equally accessible for all Americans, and we can certainly get on board with that. ADA signs convey that your office complies with local and building bylaws. Moreover, a failure to install ADA signs can result in an employment lawsuit, an ADA violation, or even an expensive fine!

    What are the requirements for ADA signage?

    The ADA has a strict list of requirements for signs to be considered ADA-compliant, and we can’t reproduce that in full here. However, a few ADA requirements relate to:

    • Contrast between background and text.
    • Location of sign.
    • Size of sign.
    • Glare and reflectivity.

    To understand the requirements a sign must fulfill, speak to an experienced signage professional at Pacesetter Signs and Graphics today.

    What is an ADA bathroom?

    An ADA bathroom is one that must meet the specific space and dimension requirements laid down by the Americans with Disabilities Accessibility Guidelines and the American National Standards Institute. Together, they specify how large the space should be, what equipment should be present, and more.

    ADA bathroom signs, similarly, have to be installed at a certain height, have braille lettering, and other features.

    What are the height requirements for ADA braille signs?

    ADA signs with braille lettering must be installed anywhere from 48 inches to 60 inches from the floor. The braille text, too, should be of a certain minimum size.

    In addition to meeting the height requirements, an ADA braille sign must not be obstructed by anything that prevents a person from reading braille, nor should it be in the path of a swinging door.

    Where do ADA exit signs need to be placed?

    ADA exit signs must be placed adjacent to all exit doors, such as for internal rooms and exits to the building. But that’s not all; ADA signs must also be installed in stairwells and along routes that guide people to emergency exits.

    We highly advise that you get a signage professional to inspect your space for where signs should be installed; failure to install signs at the right spots can lead to heavy fines.

    What is the ideal size of an ADA sign?

    The ADA doesn’t specify a particular size of ADA-compliant signs; rather, it requires letters to be a minimum 5/8 of an inch each. There are spacing requirements around the text, too, so the sign should be large enough to accommodate that.

    Contrary to popular belief, you can customize ADA signs substantially, as long as you satisfy the requirements laid down by the ADA.

    How much do ADA signs cost?

    A small ADA room sign can start from as little as $15, while larger ones can run into the hundreds of dollars. The cost of the ADA sign will depend on the materials used, its size, where it’s intended to be installed, and the text you need.

    To find out how much installing ADA signs will cost your business, talk to us today.
