Choosing accessible signage for your business or property is about more than avoiding fines (although that is important).It is also making sure that anyone who wants to access your property or be your customer can.

These are ADA compliant signs, or signs that follow the rules set out in the Americans with Disabilities Act. While we might think of these as braille signs, not all ADA signs require braille, and there are many more requirements for them than just including braille.
Accessible signage is about many different factors, including high color contrast for people with color blindness and moderate visual impairment, the size of text for those with other visual impairments, the placement of signs so they can be read and reached, and so much more.
We often get questions about these signs, including what type a business may need. There are many types of ADA signs. Bathroom signs, door signs, safety signs, and many more may be required to be compliant with the ADA—or they may not. It depends on what your property is like and how your company operates. We can give you the specific guidance you need to understand which signs you require.
It is often hard to step out of our perspective and into someone else’s. Companies and organizations that want to be accessible to everyone, to increase their customer pool, and protect their brand reputation may still fall short. Meaning well isn’t always enough. The ADA was created by experts who spent time and research on making signage (and many other elements of a business) more accessible to all kinds of people.
From a business perspective, the uses of ADA signs include:
Protecting your business from fines or penalties from missing ADA braille signs or other signs.
