North Coast Signs offers a variety of ADA Signs. The Americans with Disabilities Act(ADA) signage guidelines started in 1990. It protects and helps ensure those with disabilities have the same access as any other customer. In making sure your business is ADA Compliant, a common requirement is braille.
ADA Signs range in cost, from standard to custom. Standard Wayfinding and ADA signs can be simple and very affordably made from low-cost materials. Custom ADA signs can be designed to match the rest of your commercial signage. Customizable material options include glass, bronze, etc.

Hospitals, shopping malls, corporate buildings, office lobbies, museums, exhibits, are just some examples of where way-finding signage is needed.

What makes a sign ADA-Compliant?
There are specific guidelines outlined by the ADA that must be followed. The specifications will vary based on the type and installation location of the sign. Here are some of the key features that are necessary to create an ADA-compliant sign:
- High Contrast Colors
- Non-Decorative Font and Appropriate Size
- Tactile Characters
- Mounting Height
Braille signs are an essential component of creating a truly accessible space. These signs use raised dots to represent letters and numbers, allowing those with vision impairments to read and navigate their surroundings.
Tactile signs are designed to be read through touch and are essential for making the space accessible to individuals with visual impairments. The characters must be a certain height and spacing, and the sign must be positioned at the correct height from the floor to ensure accessibility. These are commonly used for restrooms and to identify rooms.
Wayfinding signs help individuals navigate through space, and they are an important part of making a building or facility accessible to all. To be ADA-compliant, wayfinding signs must include both visual and tactile components. The sign must have high contrast between the background and the characters/symbols, and the characters/symbols must be raised and easily discernible by touch.
Handicapped signs are used to designate parking spaces, restrooms, and other areas that are accessible to individuals with disabilities. To be ADA-compliant, handicapped signs must include the International Symbol of Accessibility (ISA) and be positioned at the correct height from the ground. In addition, the sign must have high contrast between the background and the symbol, making it easily visible to all.
