In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed to ensure Americans with disabilities do not face discrimination in schooling, employment, transportation, and other commercial and public services. The purpose of this law is to make sure disabled Americans are properly accommodated so they have the same rights and opportunities as all Americans. The ADA includes five titles that protect disabled Americans when it comes to employment, government services, telecommunications, accommodations in public and commercial buildings, and others.
All businesses must be in compliance with Title III of the ADA to accommodate disabled people within their property. To ensure compliance, you need to have ADA signs that feature braille and tactile characters throughout your building to label restrooms, stairways, offices, exits, and other areas. Divine Signs and Graphics makes and installs custom ADA signs to help businesses in Palatine, IL stay in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Our sign makers will inspect your office or building with you to identify where you need ADA signs to be in compliance with the law. We will then work with you to design your ADA signs with a consistent design that incorporates the branding of your business or institution. Our ADA signs can be made from different materials and include a variety of colors and fonts. The braille and tactile characters on these signs will help those who are visually impaired navigate your building.
By law, your building must be compliant with the ADA and include the proper signage or it is considered a civil rights violation. Businesses that violate the ADA can be fined tens of thousands of dollars and they are vulnerable to lawsuits. Each municipality may differ slightly with their ADA requirements, so it is important for businesses in Palatine, IL to be familiar with the local ADA requirements.
Putting ADA restroom signs throughout your property is not enough to be compliant as the signs themselves must meet the ADA Standards for Accessible Design.
