WheelChair Signs in Renton, WA – ADA Compliant Signs

Wheel chair braille signAre you searching for wheelchair signs in Renton, WA?

Wheelchair signs fall under the category of ADA signs.  ADA signs (American’s with Disabilities Act) are sign that inform everyone about important information related to people with disabilities. Wheelchair signs, handicap parking lot stall signs, exit signs, and wheelchair accessible bathroom signs are all types of ADA signs.  If your business isn’t up to code (ADA compliant), we can help you avoid potential penalties from the Department of Justice. At Shine On Signs and Graphics, we specialize in ADA signs, as well as all other types of signs for businesses.

All wheelchair signs require the universal icon seen in the picture to the left. Wheelchair signs like this one, which are often located inside of buildings and used to point people to bathrooms that are wheelchair accessible, must also have braille, as specified in ADA guidelines.   There are specific requirements for wheelchair signs, and any other type of ADA sign for that matter, that must be followed.  For one, the braille must be located below the writing on the ADA sign, like in the picture above.  Also, all lettering and pictograms should contrast with the sign’s background. Either dark lettering on a light background, or light lettering on a dark background, is required in order to create enough contrast to make the sign easy to read.  There are only a few fonts that the Department of Justice allows you to use for wheelchair signs.  Signs with cursive or calligraphy writing are not allowed because they make the sign difficult to read, especially from a distance.

Whether you need help with installing wheelchair accessible signs, bathroom signs, or braille signs, you can count on us.  If you aren’t sure if your business is up to ADA code, give us a call, and if needed, we can come out and give you a free estimate for what it will take to get your business ADA compliant.

At Shine On Signs and Graphics, we’re a full service custom sign and graphics design company located in Renton, WA, and we serve the entire King County area.  If you need ADA signs, or any other kind of sign for your business, give us a call!
