What is an ADA Sign?

ada signThe Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. That initial law has inspired subsequent federal, state, and municipal laws. The effects of ADA laws are many and one thing they affect is signage.

If your place of business does not have ADA signs, then you will not have the business of many people living in Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, and nearby with a visual disability. What’s more, without ADA signs you might be in breach of ADA laws.

Many people live with visual disabilities and they need to live their lives like anybody else. To help them get around, there are ADA signs.

Types of ADA Signage

ADA-compliant signs should include braille, be properly placed so as to be easily seen, and have prominent and legible text.
