More Info - ADA Braille Signs
In 1990, the American government declared failing to provide the mentally or physically disabled with sufficient access to be discriminatory and illegal. This measure came in the form of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). One of the standards required by the ADA is Braille lettering to accompany signage. As you can imagine, complying with the government is a high priority for businesses. Compliance is difficult, though, with so many signs designed for so many different purposes. So the question is - which signs are legally required to have Braille? An ADA-compliant sign is required in all public accommodations and commercial facilities including public libraries, hotels, restaurants and schools, but it’s also required in workplaces and businesses that are patronized by the public. ]When agencies like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) or the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) provide guidance on necessary signs, those signs should also be ADA compliant, in order to serve the widest possible audience in a public space or commercial facility.
Braille Signs supplied by Insignia Signs come in various colors, sizes and styles to meet the needs of your business.
