ADA Signs

When you are told that your office signs need to be ADA compliant, it is a good idea for you to follow such advice. This is because using ADA signs for your office will not only help you show everyone, including those who have visual impairments and other disabilities, where certain facilities are. These signs will also help you avoid any problems that come with non-compliance.

As you may know by now, the use of these signs in certain areas of your office is mandatory. This means that if you do not use ADA compliant signs in areas where these are required, you are essentially breaking the law. Breaking the mandates of the ADA can come with rather heavy repercussions, and these include fines, penalties for your business, and of course, the added expense of having to redo your signs.

Some people unwittingly find themselves violating some of the rules set by the ADA for these signs because of the fact that they thought they knew what features were needed for these signs to be compliant. Add to that the use of a sign manufacturing company that is not that well versed in the laws that govern these signs, and you have for yourself a signage problem that may cost a lot of money. This is why it is important that, aside from educating yourself with the regulations that these signs are supposed to follow, you hire a company that not only knows what is needed when it comes to ADA signs, but one that actually employs sign designers who are also compliance experts.

You need to ensure that when you choose a signage company to create your signs for you that they inform you of any changes that need to be made for compliance sake. You should also make sure that they are up-to-date when it comes to the changes that are periodically enacted into this law, as well as what local compliance laws need to be followed too. You will find that being on top of your signage compliance requirements, and not straying from what is required, will do you a wealth of good.

Not only will you be able to skirt any problems that may arise with non-compliance, but you also enable those with disabilities to easily find where they need to go. You need not compromise when it comes to your sign’s designs since today’s manufacturing methods enable sign makers to create signs that are not only compliant, but are also visually pleasing.
