The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed in 1990 to help protect Americans who are disabled from discrimination when it comes to employment, schooling, transportation, and other services that are open to the public. This law is meant to accommodate those with disabilities to ensure they have the same rights and opportunities as all Americans and it is composed of five titles that ensure accommodations for employment, state and local government services, public accommodations in commercial buildings and facilities open to the general public,telecommunications, and other miscellaneous provisions.
When it comes to your business, you must be in compliance with Title III of the ADA to accommodate those with disabilities within your building. To be in compliance, your business must have ADA signs, such as exit signs, restroom signs, signs for stairs, and room labels that include braille and raised, tactile characters posted throughout your office or facility. At Divine Signs and Graphics, we can create and install ADA signs for your business in Schaumburg, IL to ensure that your office or building is ADA compliant.
Our sign company professionals will work with you to help identify what ADA signs you need to be in compliance, and we can ensure a consistent design for all of your ADA signs. We offer a range of colors, fonts, and materials for our ADA signs so we can create designs that are cohesive with your branding. The ADA signs we create will also have tactile characters and braille for those who are visually impaired.
It is very important for your business to be in compliance with the ADA because non-compliance is considered a violation of civil rights. Your business can be fined tens of thousands of dollars and be subject to lawsuits if found in violation. Specific requirements may differ between municipalities, so make sure you are familiar with ADA requirements in the Schaumburg, IL area.
