ADA compliant signage means more than adding braille and raised lettering.
Deringer-Ney Inc recently moved to a new state of the art facility designed and built specifically to meet their present and future needs. (Details on their move can be found on the Deringer-Ney website.)
As part of this move, they required ADA-compliant signage.
What makes a sign ADA-compliant?
In a nut-shell, to be ADA-compliant, a sign needs to have raised lettering, braille, and the letters need to be at least 5/8″ tall. Where the sign is installed is another factor of compliance. For example, there are thresholds for lowest-point and highest-point mounting. Plus the sign must be mounted to a wall on the latch-side of the door – there are exceptions for when there is no possible way to mount in the specified location.

The Installation at Deringer-Ney
For Deringer-Ney, we installed ADA-compliant exit signs on all exterior exits. This installation was required to receive a CO (Certificate of Occupancy) from the town.
