Americans with Disabilities Act
In the 1990s the Americans with Disabilities Act was first put into legislation, to help the disabled and handicapped in public spaces. In short, the Americans with Disabilities Act is commonly referred to as ADA. 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 Signs in place. If you are not ADA compliant, your business can be fined up to and in excess of $50,000.
Room Identification Signs
ADA Compliant Room Signs can be found in every facility. These type of ADA Compliant Room signs usually are identified with 3 or 4 digit room number. Depending on the type of Room Sign, we can provide an insert for the employee or patient name. Below a summary of where you will need Room Identification Signs.
- Apartments in a multi-family housing facility
- Patient Rooms in a hospital
- Guest rooms in a hotel
- Offices in a medical facility
- Classrooms in a school or university
ADA Restroom Signs
Even more common then Room Identification Signs are ADA Restroom Signs. In the state of California restrooms require a second ADA Sign. For male restrooms this requires a triangle shaped symbol and for women and unisex restroom a round circle. You will find the triangle and circular signs mounted on the door, in addition to the federal ADA Compliant Signs on the door latch.
Maximum Occupancy Signs
Every room or space that is an assembly occupancy shall have the occupant load of the room or space posted in a conspicuous place. For example near the main exit or exit access doorway from the room or space. Maximum Occupancy Signs are common in conference rooms, event venues, classrooms, restaurants and more.
