Businesses that contact the Vibrant Sign Studio to discuss the purchase of ADA signs in Miami FL, frequently do not realize that they may actually operate on the wrong side of the law at this time. Having bought signage to meet the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) a long time ago, and having since upgraded some, owners and operators of these companies do not recognize that the arrival of the 2010 standards has changed the definition of acceptable and non-compliant markers.
What has Changed?
Did you know that Helvetica Medium Copy Style used to be a good font choice for ADA signs? This is no longer the case. Moreover, mandated installation heights for signs have changed, as have the core height requirements for letters placed on your signage. Companies that bought markers to comply with the original rules of the ADA are protected against claims as long as they do not make any repairs or changes to their signs. But once these upgrades take place, the new mandates kick in.
ADA Signage Can Market, Brand, and Look Visually Appealing
The mandated signs have gotten a bad reputation for looking drab, overly utilitarian, and not really something that adds pizzazz to a setting. This is simply not true. Sure, if you decide to buy your signs at a big box office supply store that specializes in mass-produced goods, you may walk away with this impression.
Because our graphic artists specialize in customization as well as compliance, we succeed in creating products that underscore the interior décor scheme of your venue, look great on the wall, and meet all the compliance issues regulators look for.
- Material use. For starters, we help you select materials that fit into your overall setting. In some situations, this might refer to transparent acrylic boards with raised lettering. It could also refer to brushed aluminum signs that champion a silver and black color combination for identifying restroom locations.
- Sign design. Envision the use of a clear acrylic suite sign board that we mount to a dark blue wall. Next, consider the use of raised characters that we paint gold, in keeping with your company’s colors. By following the ADA rules regarding contrasts but still selection a corporate hue, we help you brand your business. Another design option is the use of cast plaques that look sophisticated and stylish against any backdrop.
- Style selection. There is a limited library of fonts and icons that companies may choose from when selecting characters for compliant signage. Our experts help you choose a combination of the two that bespeaks the overall atmosphere of your business while following the rules. You no longer have to choose between style and function.
