The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has been in place for more than 20 years, with major revisions enacted in 2010. The 2010 Standards for Accessible Design (SAD) gained teeth – compliance is now required and enforceable on the federal level.
Since the ADA views visual impairments as a disability covered under the Act, there are specific guidelines pertaining to signage products. The two categories covered under interior signage are Wall Mounted, Ceiling Mounted or Projected. Within the Wall Mounted category, Identification of permanent room signs, Directional signs, and Informational signs are covered. Within the Ceiling or Projected Mounted category, Directional and Information signs are covered.
