A business that goes out of its way to cater to all its customers—despite their limitations or handicaps—is a business that people respect. Having ADA signs is not only required by law for most businesses, but it’s necessary if you want to show that you’re considering the needs of everyone. Everyone wants to feel welcome, and with ADA signage, you can make everyone feel comfortable in your business.
At BlackFire Signs, we’ve helped many businesses in Atlanta, GA, and we’re always looking to partner with more brands and businesses that are ready to implement signage solutions that will set them up for success.
What Are the Height Requirements for ADA Signage?
ADA Signs have to follow a guideline. These signs must be mounted between 48-60 inches from the ground. This is so they’re easy to find and easy to read. The distance is measured from the floor to the bottom of the lowest letter on the sign. They have to be mounted in specific locations. Typically, they’re mounted at every door, elevator, or place where there‘s a change in the environment so that people know where they are. If you hang ADA custom restroom signs from the ceiling, then the height requirement is different. These signs have to be a minimum of 80 inches from the bottom of the sign to the floor.
In addition to the height requirement, most ADA signs have a tactical requirement so they’re accessible for blind people to read, meaning they must be written in braille. For further details on the tactical and height guidelines, refer to the chapter 7 regulations on ADA signage.
ADA Signs Mounting Location
As mentioned, you must mount ADA signs in a specific location adjacent to a door. To stay in line with regulations, mount them on the wall on the latch side of the door. If there’s a situation where there’s a double door, they need to be mounted on the right side of the right door. If one of the doors in a double-door scenario is inactive, mount them on the inactive door.
If you’re still not sure about the mounting requirements of these signs, don’t panic. BlackFire Signs has your back, and we’re available to answer any further questions you have.
