The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) helps remove barriers for people with disabilities. More than 2.5 million Americans suffer from a visual impairment - not just blindness. High contrast ADA compliant signs help ensure accessibility for seniors, the visually impaired and blind.
An ADA compliant sign is required for every permanent room or space in a building. This document is designed to help you understand how ADA compliant signs should be installed. Always defer to your local building authority for regulations and code updates. You can review the guidelines enforceable as of March 15, 2016 at www.ada.gov - Chapter 7, section 703 of the ADA code relates to signs.
