: : What is ADA? : :

ADA is a law (The Americans with Disabilities Act) which was enacted in 1992. Its purpose is to provide people with disabilities easy access to public buildings, services and employment.

All interior signs which identify permanent rooms or spaces must conform to the law. The law states that these signs must have raised upper case characters accompanied by Grade 2 braille. If symbols or pictograms are included on these signs, the space for the pictogram is also regulated.

The greatest effect, by far, of this regulation has been on facilities such as office buildings, health care facilities, educational institutions and hotels where there are many rooms or suites. Each of these spaces must be designated with a raised character and braille identification sign installed in the proper location.

Sign Source is very familiar with the ADA law as it pertains to signs and will provide guidance to help you comply.
