Although ADA compliant room signs can be made from wood and photo-polymer, the mostly used material for ADA signs is acrylic. In order for these signs to be ADA Compliant they need to be matte or non-glare, which is available in acrylic. ADA signs are required in all public areas and for that reason often required in large quantities. Therefore acrylic makes a good material for ADA signs, keeping it cost effective.

Another indoor sign type where acrylic is very popular, are Lobby & Office Signs. Acrylic is very durable and versatile at the same time, making it a preferred option. Lobby & Office Signs come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and therefore you need a versatile material. Acrylic can both be used for a back panel, as well as for cut out dimensional letters.

Moving on to outdoor signs is where an acrylic sign becomes interesting when you are considering a cost effective option for a commercial sign. Acrylic is an extremely strong material and therefore as good an option for cut out letters, compared to aluminum. Especially when the sign is custom painted, you won’t see any difference between an illuminated dimensional letter and an acrylic dimensional letter. In order to enhance it’s strength, dimensional letters fabricated for outdoor use are stud mounted into the building.
