Building and Office Room Name Signs

Building and Office Room Name ADA Signage

ADA Compliant Tactile Braille Room Identification Signage

More than 2.5 million Americans are legally blind (visual acuity less than 20/200) and as our country ages millions more will suffer from limited vision caused by glaucoma or macular degeneration. ADA room name or number signs are required by law for the fundamental purpose of making buildings safe and accessible to all people, including those of us with visual disabilities. Correct ADA Signs are matte finished for non-glare, with high contrast legend versus background for optimal readability, with tactile (raised to the touch) letters, and Grade 2 Braille. All rooms that are not likely to change function (such as a restroom, kitchen, elevator, etc) should be identified by an ADA compliant sign with the room function name. Other rooms that may change function can be identified by numbers or letters. A flexible solution for such rooms (e.g., classrooms, offices) is to identify the room with its number on the sign and to also include a window where changeable paper inserts can identify the room's current occupant or function. The take-away message: If it's a room that is not likely to change, you are required to have an ADA sign identifying it.
