ADA Requirements

The ADA and how it impacts your business signs.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a comprehensive list of architectural specifications that also includes certain categories of signs and graphics. Many people think the ADA just refers to Braille or raised lettering on directional signs. But the ADA addresses signage for all kinds of physical handicaps. Complying with the guidelines may affect the specifications for nearly all of your facility's architectural signs and the sign requirements aren’t always clear. Your ADA compliant signage should be designed to keep pace with your growing business. And while some might not think these are mutually exclusive, Image360 has the ability to customize any ADA signage package, while still maintaining your brand identity.

Image360 will help educate you on which building signs must comply with the ADA regulations. Signs used for advertising and marketing purposes, temporary signs, company logos and names do not necessarily have to comply, but almost every sign that would be considered an “architectural” sign must comply with one or another of the ADA Guidelines.  Here are some examples of ADA signs that are regulated by the act:

  • Signs identifying a permanent room or space of a facility, including exits
  • Directional signs or signs informing about functional spaces of the facility
  • Signs that identify direct or inform about accessible features of the facility
