Are your buildings ADA compliant?
Making sure you have the appropriate ADA compliant signage for your building is a must these days. With the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, just about all public buildings must meet the requirements set out by providing adequate signage in parking lots and on the exterior and interior of buildings. Fortunately, Imagine SignWorks has the experience and tools necessary to help Longview, Tyler and Kilgore Texas businesses become compliant.
What Is Required?
For both exterior and interior signage, there are specific requirements which must be met with the ADA. Included in these requirements include:
- Proper mounting locations
- Contrasting colors
- Letter or character height and size
- Universal and recognizable symbols
- Non-glare finish
- Typeface and font
We can Braille any sign!
Based on federal regulations and rules, the State of Texas is allowed to require additional signage. Also coming into play are local codes. When it comes to ensuring your property is ADA compliant, Imagine SignWorks excels. We know all of the requirements for the local jurisdictions in the Dallas and Irving areas and can make sure you are up to code. Often times, all you need is a few signs to be compliant.
We Have Braille Signs
Grade II Braille signs are among our offerings. On directional signs, these are raised dots that will accompany text. The numbers or letters can also be dimensional allowing for those with vision impairments to use the signs. To inform about handicap access, these signs must be on stairways, restrooms, elevators, and exits to make sure you are ADA compliant.
To let people know where to go in case of a disaster, like a building fire, an emergency evacuation map is a must for any public building. These signs can also be rendered in Braille.
You may face costly penalties if you are void of the ADA compliant signs necessary to pass inspection. Let the experts at Imagine SignWorks update your premises.
