In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities ACT (ADA) was passed in order to prevent discrimination against disabled Americans in cases like schooling, employment, transportation, and other services. This law's purpose is to ensure that Americans with disabilities have the same opportunities and rights as able-bodied Americans, including accommodations for employment, local and state government services, and public accommodations in facilities and commercial buildings open to the general public.
Your business must comply with Title III of the ADA to accommodate guests with disabilities who visit your building. In order to comply, you must have a variety of ADA signs, including restroom signs, exit signs, stair signs, and room labels that display braille and tactile characters. At Divine Signs and Graphics, we can design and install ADA signs for businesses and commercial buildings in Hoffman Estates, IL, to guarantee that your office is ADA compliant.
We will help you identify what ADA signs your building needs and once a design is chosen, our designers will ensure a consistent design for all ADA signs. We provide a variety of materials, fonts, and colors for our ADA signs so you can choose whatever combination best represents your company's brands. Our ADA signs will also include braille and tactile characters for the visually impaired.
If your business is in violation of the ADA with the design of your ADA signs or lack thereof, this is considered a violation of civil rights and you may be subject to lawsuits and hefty fines. For this reason, it is important that you understand the ADA requirements in Hoffman Estates, IL.
Our professionals are familiar with these guidelines and will ensure the sign font, size, location, character size, color contrast, overall design, and mounting height of your signs are all compliant with the ADA Standards for Accessible Design.
ADA signs are meant to help Americans with disabilities navigate your building, so your ADA signs must include tactile characters and braille to benefit the visually impaired. Tactile characters are characters on the sign that are raised so people with visual impairments can feel them. Room labels, exit signs, and restroom signs with tactile and braille characters help the visually impaired work their way through your building with ease.
