The following sections present an ever-changing selection of ADA compliant signs offering options that meet your needs using industry standard materials and feature changeable inserts.
How to Make a Sign Selection
- CHOOSE SIGN STYLE: People Signs offers a series of ten standard sign families suited to interior wayfinding and office identification. Our interior design series features on-site changeability, is ADA compatible, and supports requirements for certificates of occupancy. The sign systems are low maintenance, fully recyclable and offer options for custom configuration. The signs may be wall-mounted or, where visibility is limited, ceiling-hung or projected overhead for easy viewing. Selection of the sign style should be based on the aesthetic of the office and brand’s overall look and feel.
- CHOOSE THE COLOR COMBINATION: With 50 modified acrylic colors to choose from and three wood laminates, the ability to coordinate with office decor or a brand’s design is simple. It is important to remember that color contrast of text against a sign’s background is imperative in order to meet ADA requirements.
- CHOOSE AN ADA APPROVED FONT: The ADA requires all signage fonts be sans serifs and that all text is uppercase on a tactile sign. While these fonts may not be the font used in a company’s branding guide, there is likely a font that will work in conjunction with the brand’s chosen font. Once a sans serif font is chosen it should be consistently used throughout a signage program.
- KNOW YOUR NEEDS: Wayfinding signage is intended to create a safe, customer-friendly space in and around a building. It is extremely important to keep signage as visual as possible, minimal, and easy to understand. This ensures that everyone is able to understand it with little confusion, regardless of age or ability. When creating a signage system for an area, building or architectural structure it is essential to develop a strategic wayfinding scheme. With this step you are able to build up a modular wayfinding system that will adapt to the environment and the human expectations for orientation and navigation purposes. Research is an important step to understand the environment and where information is needed to maximize legibility of the wayfinding system.
