Custom ADA Braille Signs Washington

ADA Braille SignsWhat are ADA braille signs?

The term “ADA braille signs” refers to a wide range of sign types that follow the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) standards for braille size/spacing, as well as general sign design and installation.

The ADA is a comprehensive civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. To that end, the ADA outlines a number of sign design specifications that must be followed by businesses to make all products, services, buildings, and information totally inclusive. Braille is a system of touch reading and writing used by blind persons.

ADA braille signs display embossed dots arranged in quadrangular letter spaces, called cells, each of which may contain up to six dots. For ADA braille signs to be easily read by individuals with blindness and visual impairment, the dots must be easily discernible by touch and also meet ADA design standards, which include specifications regarding:

  • Measurement range
  • Dot base diameter
  • Distance between dots in the same cell
  • Distance between corresponding dots in adjacent cells
  • Dot height
  • Distance between corresponding dots from one cell directly below

If this seems like a lot to learn, don’t worry: Conover DeSIGNS can help.

  • Building directories
  • Menus
  • Seat and row designations in assembly areas
