The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 prescribes Standards for Accessible Design. It lays down a framework for signage that will help people with vision, cognitive, hearing, and mobility impairments safely navigate spaces.

It is a common misconception that there is a single set of rules to make a sign compliant with the ADA. Instead, signs for different purposes and hung in different areas will have different requirements under the ADA. This might, or might not, including braille, clear script, color contrast, and much more.
ADA features are parts of a sign (or something else, like a building) which has features that are compliant with the ADA. It’s more common to see a building’s ramps or other accessibility features refer to as an “ADA feature.” However, compliant signs may also be considered ADA features.
Carefully! Really, when it comes to making ADA signs you should start with a design and double-check that it fulfills all of the ADA requirements for the specific type that it is. It is always wise to have a professional’s help making an ADA sign so you can be sure it is compliant.
An ADA assessment is when you or a third party assess your facility, or a part of your facility, in order to ensure that it meets ADA requirements. You can use an ADA checklist to perform the assessment yourself, however it is better to have a professional perform it so you can be certain.
The ADA does not call for a specific material, instead relying on a sign maker’s skill to use materials that will otherwise accomplish the visual requirements of the act. However, there are materials which are more commonly used in ADA signs. Rasters are usually clear acrylic.
In order to be compliant with the rules, many different signs will need to include braille. However, not all ADA compliant signs require braille. When a sign does require braille it will also have many other requirements like height of the sign, and size of the braille rasters, among others.
Yes, almost all restroom signs will require pictograms in order to be ADA compliant. The pictograms must have a verbal description of what they depict below them. They must also have a border which makes them more visible. Also, this border must be at least six inches in height.
There are different types of braille. ADA signs which require braille typically require Grade 2 braille and also may require a certain spacing between each braille character. Grade 2 is a type of contracted braille which is faster to read. It has abbreviations as well as letters, which is convenient for many signs.
Once you have professionally made ADA signs, it’s not over. The placement of your signs is sometimes also prescribed by the ADA. The height of your sign may be mandated to allow people with visual impairments to find and read it easily. The side of the sign that your door is on may also be mandated.
