Suite signs are important, not only for finding restrooms and which door to go to when you’re late for that meeting but they’re also a way for your company to communicate your sense of style to your clients in a practical way. These architectural wayfinding signs need to communicate effectively but also give a seamless professional look. We can suggest and design the appropriate signage for your office suite, cubicles & hallways.
Braille and directional office signage may need to be ADA compliant but it doesn’t have to look completely standard, boring or ugly. We can show you a variety of colors, designs and styles that will reflect the integrity of your interior space and still meet all the requirements needed to pass inspection. We can suggest colors, fonts and sizes that match Federal Regulations. Often office signage needs updating. Please contact us to establish not only a beautifully designed, comprehensive signage package but also a great on-going working relationship.
An ADA sign is not synonymous with a Braille sign. From Wikipedia, authored by Sharon Toji, The ADA Sign Lady
The term “ADA Signs” has come into common use in the architectural, construction and signage industries with the advent of the Americans With Disabilities Act. Unfortunately, it’s a misunderstood term. Most people think it’s synonymous with braille signs. Certainly, signs with braille and raised characters are the most visible manifestation of the law requiring access to the built environment, but the sign standards in the ADA Accessibility Guidelines, or ADAAG, require much more than just braille and raised characters on some signs.
In general, almost every sign that would be considered an “architectural” sign must comply with one or another of the ADA Guidelines. In other words, if a sign identifies a permanent room or space of a facility, including exits, directs or informs about functional spaces of the facility, or identifies, directs to, or informs about accessible features of the facility, it must comply. (Signs for advertising and marketing purposes, temporary signs, company logos and company names are examples of signs or sections of signs that do not have to comply.)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia…
Creating built environments and facilities that are accessible and user-friendly equally to all, with safety and with dignity, is a right protected by law in many jurisdictions. It is an indispensable pre-requisite for social inclusion, focusing on equal opportunity and diversity. Accessibility to the built environment affects a large number of people within society in their day-to-day normal life, concerning their safety and physical, mental and social well being. Even a single step can deny entry to a person pulling a suitcase on wheels, or a person using a wheelchair or even pose a safety hazard to anyone with impaired vision. Built Environments that do not comply with safety and accessibility standards, especially toilets and wash areas, ramps, steps and doorways, are often safety hazards posing unwanted risks to precious human lives, especially to increasing huge sectors of populations concerning the elderly, pregnant mothers, those with numerous debilitating conditions, those carrying small children and heavy luggage and also the dis-Abled persons.
