ADA Signs for Room Identification

Room Number and Room Name ADA Signs

What rooms are legally required to have ADA signs?

Shopper Award The short answer: All permanent rooms and spaces are required to have ADA Signs.
If the function of a room is not likely to change, you are required to have an ADA sign identifying it. Most rooms fall under this designation. Specifically, ADA compliant signs are required to provide designations, labels, or names for interior rooms or spaces where the sign is not likely to change over time. Examples include interior signs labeling restrooms, room number signs, stairwell and floor numbers or letters, and room name signs. Tactile text descriptors are required for pictograms that are provided to label or identify a permanent room or space. Even if an ADA sign may not required, it's still a good idea. (more info...)

ADA Room Identification Signs Information


Signs that identify rooms and spaces are to be located adjacent to the door they identify so they can be located by persons who are functionally blind. For the most part, one sign is used by both tactile and visual readers, so there are compromises to assist tactile readers. However, it is possible to use two separate signs with the same information. Tactile room name signs require uppercase characters in sans serif typefaces. The characters can be from 5/8 inch to 2 inches high. The Braille must accompany the characters (below the characters) and must be Contracted Braille (formerly called Grade 2 Braille).

Room number and room name signs are installed 48 inches minimum from the baseline of the lowest raised character and 60 inches maximum from the baseline of the highest raised character. If pictograms (symbols) are used to identify the space (example: restrooms with gender pictograms), they must be in a six inch high clear field and accompanied by a tactile character and Braille label below the field.

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.
