What is ADA Signage?
ADA signage refers to any business or resource signage that can be accessed and interpreted by those with visual impairments. ADA compliant signage includes the use of braille, raised text, and symbols and graphics. It is used to help the visually impaired effectively navigate buildings and identify key features.
ADA signs are required at every doorway for most businesses. Grade II Braille should be included on all directional signage including the following:
- Interior and exterior signage identifying building name and address.
- Navigational signage such as directories, floor and room numbers and names.
- Instructional signage like entry card swipes, call box instructions or security procedures.
