Americans with Disabilities Act in Melbourne
ADA stands for Americans with Disabilities Act and was first put into legislation in the 1990s to help the disabled and handicapped in public spaces. The act states that all public areas have to have the proper signage displayed for all handicapped people. It’s important to note as a business owner that you are required by law to have your facilities ADA compliant. This means that you need to have ADA Compliant Signs in place. If you are not ADA compliant, your business can be fined up to and in excess of $50,000.
What is an ADA Compliant Sign
ADA Compliant Signs need to meet the ADA Signage Regulations. Although our team is experienced with these regulations in and around Melbourne, you can download the ADA Signage Regulations below. In summary, ADA Compliant Signs need to have braille and tactile lettering. In addition to this the text copy needs to comply with a certain size and font. Furthermore, when it comes to color there needs to be enough contract between the background color and the font. Meaning a lighter font and darker background or the other way around. Also, Braille & Tactile Signs shall have a non-glare finish.
The above summary of ADA Signage Regulations may seem overwhelming, however at Sign Partners we take all the regulations into account when designing your ADA Signs. Even with following these regulations we are able to design custom signs, matching the interior of your facilities. We can use different types of materials like acrylic, wood or metallic finishes. Furthermore we can incorporate your company branding colors into the design of the sign.
An ADA Compliant Sign alone does not make you pass your inspection and therefore the installation guidelines are important.
