ADA Signs For Offices In Florida Are Often Required – And Always Right
ADA signs for offices, building complexes and other public buildings in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Palm Beach, Orlando and beyond are often required by law – and always the right thing to do. Ensuring that your public areas are accessible to the broadest range of people possible is good for business.
You’ll find many specific stipulations about ADA-compliant signage in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and our team members at Expose Yourself Signs are experts at helping you comply with the law while making sure you maintain a beautiful and consistent look throughout your property. We’re better equipped than ever before to design and produce custom Braille restroom signs, room number signs, directional signs and more.
Are ADA Signs Really Necessary?
If your buildings are open to the public, ADA signs are probably necessary. The type of buildings you own, how they’re used and local regulations all come into play. In most buildings for public use in Florida, ADA signs are essential. Even if you’re not sure your facility is required to have ADA signs, it’s better to be safe than have a complaint filed against you by a disgruntled client or customer.
When required, all permanent exterior and interior signs must follow ADA regulations. This includes any sign that will be up for more than a week, including safety signs for stairwells and exits.
Does Every Sign Have To Be ADA Compliant?
Not every sign must comply. There are many types of signs in public buildings that don’t have to comply with ADA requirements, including your address, the company name and logo, most directories, occupant name signs, row and seat designation signs, parking signs except disabled parking, signs in non-public areas, evacuation maps and temporary signs, among others. Still, we recommend that all signs match for a consistent look and feel throughout your property.
If your building was made compliant with ADA regulations established in 1991, you might not be required to make additional changes to your signage to comply with 2010 and later ADA changes. As a building or business owner, however, it’s essential that you keep on top of those and other signage requirements to avoid legal and regulatory issues.
