The Americans with Disabilities Act is a federal civil rights law passed in 1990 that prohibits discrimination based on disability. The ADA inspired subsequent federal, state, and local laws. One effect of the ADA was that businesses now need ADA signs.
ADA signs help people with visual disabilities read important information and navigate businesses.
ADA signs must have large text. Placement is also key in increasing visibility and fonts and color schemes must not hinder legibility. Braille is also a key component of ADA signs.
According to the National Institutes of Health, there are over a million blind Americans. When factoring in all types of impairments, there are between three and four million Americans with poor vision. According to the National Federation of the Blind, there are about 418,000 people in New York State and 14,100 people in Vermont who have a visual disability of some description. Plattsburgh Creative Signs can make effective ADA signs for your business in Saranac Lake, or wherever to make sure you can properly serve these people.
ADA signs are not just altruistic. Not having ADA signs puts your business at risk for receiving hefty fines. Each state and municipality can have their own ADA regulations, so you need to work with a local sign studio who can tell you which ADA signs you need. To learn more, please contact us.
