Clients who trust in us

Serving San Diego, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Poway & Chula Vista, CA

The Americans with Disabilities Act was a U.S. federal law passed by congress in 1990. It prohibits discrimination based on disability. It has inspired subsequent laws on the federal, state, and municipal levels. ADA laws have far reaching effects and can require that businesses change the way they operate. When it comes to signage, ADA laws mean having to have ADA signs installed.

ADA signs are signs that have large enough and clear enough font so that they can be read by people with poor vision. ADA signs must also be placed correctly, so as to make them as visually accessible as possible. In some cases, ADA signs should also have braille so that even those who are blind can read the sign with their fingers. ADA laws can also affect the choices you make with regards to the color scheme and usage of fonts on your signs.

Without ADA signs, you’re leaving your business open to receiving hefty fines. Furthermore, you’re risking losing the business of the San Diego area. The National Federation of the Blind estimates that there are almost 800,000 people in California who have a visual disability. The San Diego Center for the Bling estimates that there are over 100,000 people in the San Diego area along with a visual impairment.

What Makes ADA Signs Different from Standard Signs?

  • Contrast – The background and fonts should use light-on-dark or dark-on-light contrast criteria for maximum legibility.
  • Size – Fonts must adhere to a specific height and width. The signs should also follow the prescribed padding requirements.
  • Glare – Signs must have a glare-resistant finish.
  • Braille – ADA signs must include Grade 2 Braille lettering.
  • Location – Signs should be installed 48-60 inches above the ground on a static surface.
