About Our ADA Signs, Room ID and Nameplates

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) governs the installation of signage that offers equal accessibility to your business for individuals with visual impairments. The actual application of these rules gets confusing for small business owners because some companies are exempt from the implementation of the law. We recommend contacting our experts before you place your order to discuss the ADA signs you need as well as the room ID and nameplate markers that do not have to comply. What do you need to consider before purchasing ADA signs, room ID and nameplates?

  • Sign placement. ADA signage must meet location-specific requirements that govern mounting sites and heights. Our technicians gladly visit your location to inventory ADA signs you already have to ensure continued compliance.
  • Pictograms and fonts. The symbols you select as well as the font you choose must comply with the law.
  • Braille II. We add Braille II dots that allow touch readers to take in your message.
  • Colors. The law specifies a high-contrast color combination. We can usually incorporate one of your company’s colors to include your branding information.
  • Non-compliant signs. Signs that do not have to meet ADA standards – name plates as well as temporary room IDs – may feature your company’s colors, preferred fonts and similar identifying attributes that make them fit in with your interior décor choices.
