Custom Signs

Custom ADA Sign

In Alberta, accessible signs are created using guidelines from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to produce ADA compliant signs that support accessibility throughout buildings and commercial spaces. ADA signs for Edmonton area businesses should be an important part of every signage strategy, so that all customers can safely navigate your space. 3Sixty Sign Solutions follows these guidelines to provide our clients with ADA compliant signs that support their business.

ADA signs allow you to welcome more customers into your building and offer an elevated level of customer service. While ADA signs are becoming required in more and more provinces, having them already be part of your business signage will demonstrate to customers that you care about every person’s experience inside your business.

There are many different aspects to ADA compliant signs, but that doesn’t mean that the signs can’t include your logo and brand colours. Compliant signage can still represent your business and work to support your brand identity.

If you’re looking to get ADA signs in Edmonton, here are some of the things required in order to be ADA compliant.

  • Height - overhead signs must be at least 80 inches above ground. Wall mounted signs should be 27 inches from the floor, but should not exceed 80 inches.
  • Colour - background and characters should be in contrast so they don’t merge into each other.
  • Finishing - signs should have a non-glare finish.
  • Raised characters - letters must be uppercase and should range from 5/8 inch to two inches in height and raised by 1/32 of an inch from the background.
  • Raised characters - letters must be uppercase and should range from 5/8 inch to two inches in height and raised by 1/32 of an inch from the background.

ADA compliant signs are most often found indoors or at the entrance of a building. If the purpose of a sign is to identify a permanent room or space, it is recommended that the signage adhere to the ADA guidelines. ADA compliant signs are also recommended to indicate exits, elevators, and restrooms, as well as signs that inform visitors about the accessible features of your building.

Having proper ADA signs means that all individuals can access the goods and services they need. No matter what type of industry you’re in, you should work to ensure that you’re meeting the requirements for ADA signage. 3Sixty Sign Solutions has extensive experience creating branded and ADA compliant signs, and our team can work with your business to make sure you have what you need to support your success.

Ensure that accessibility is part of your signage strategy.
