Most of us are aware of ADA signs being required to mark bathrooms, and to inform us of which gender (male, female, or unisex) the room is for, and if it is accessible to people using wheelchairs. But did you know that every permanent room is required to have an ADA compliant identification sign? Think of it the next time you check into a hotel, or visit an office building. In properly signed buildings, you will notice that each room has a small sign indicating it's purpose.
The most common ADA room sign is a room number sign that has tactile (slightly raised to the touch) numbers and/or letters, and Braille that reflects the sign's tactile message.

What rooms are legally required to have ADA signs?
The short answer : All permanent rooms and spaces are required to have ADA Signs.
The ADA applies to signs that 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, 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.
The key thing to remember: It it's a room that is not likely to change its function, you are required to have an ADA sign identifying it. Most rooms fall under this designation. Restrooms, vending areas, closets, etc. tend not to change function often and are required to have ADA signs. Consider this: Even if an ADA sign is not required, it's still a good idea. Properly identifying the rooms in our buildings makes them accessible to everybody. It's the right thing to do, and the difference in cost to identify a room with an ADA compliant sign versus a non-compliant sign is slight.
