Displaying your ADA signs correctly will promote safety for everyone. It's important that road signs on your organization's property adhere to all guidelines to avoid being held liable for any accidents and injuries that may happen on your property. All signs and posts should be ordered from experienced and legitimate suppliers like LA Signs in Mobile AL. Reputable suppliers will always provide you with signs that are compliant with all federal codes and regulations.
All ADA signs must be mounted on FHWA-approved perforated square steel posts to make them outstanding on the roadside. These posts are installed at an optimum height that enables all drivers, regardless of vehicle, to see them clearly. For indoor signs, those identifying rooms and spaces should be located adjacent to the door. They must also have non-glare characters and backgrounds.
Some outside signage applications include:
- identifying parking spaces
- indicating wider walkways
- highlighting passenger loading zones
- designating entrances and exits
- noting rescue assistance areas
- providing directions to the nearest accessible facility
The indoor ADA signs must have a great dark-to-light contrast between the background and the characters for clarity purposes. The difference enables even visually-impaired individuals to read the signs easily. Additionally, the directional and informational signs should use the simple upper and lower case letters for quick and easy readability.
