Create Compliance.

ADA compliance is so much more than just Braille. In order to remain in compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), your custom signage must adhere to strict industry, government and independent organization guidelines. Some of these requirements include the use of non-glare materials, proper typeface, color and size selection, the proper use of standard symbols, tactile elements and Braille.

Planning and designing an attractive sign package around these restrictions can be a daunting task, and the staff at DesignElement is well versed in all aspects of ADA compliant signage, including the pitfalls to avoid and when ADA standards apply to your business or organization. Call us today and we will develop an ADA signage package that is not only informational and attractive, but also compliant to all applicable ADA codes.
