Customers need to navigate your office or showroom safely, especially if you want your business to remain compliant with regulations surrounding the Americans with Disabilities Act. ADA-protected persons include the physically or visually impaired, which requires that key pieces of signage that help customers or employees find their way around your business have easy-to-read fonts, bright contrasting colors, braille on door numbers, and that your entrances and exits are wheelchair accessible. One of the key factors to keeping your business ADA-compliant is wayfinding signs that conform to these specifications. Wayfinding signs help visitors to your restaurant, facility, and business navigate to their point of interest. They guide your visitors to your egress points, rest areas, and other facilities or points of interest.
Wayfinding signs need to be varied and purposeful to guide your customers and employees throughout your company or store. That’s why directional signage can take on a variety of forms while still conforming to ADA regulations. The materials used and the purpose of each piece of wayfinding signage should reflect its installation site and function. Some examples include:
Whatever your company desires for your wayfinding signage, the team at Heritage Printing, Signs & Displays can custom cut and print just about any sign in just about any shape with our CNC router and laser cutter/etching technologies. We fabricate wayfinding signs signage that not only meets ADA regulations, but conforms to your business’ unique branding and imagery as well.
I worked with Heritage to design custom banners for my small business and got wonderful service from Dean and the rest of the team at Heritage! The signs were beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. They stood out well at our outdoor events!
Wayfinding signs are typically for providing direction within a particular space, but the same rules apply if the signage is meant to be installed outdoors or if your facility has interior and exterior zones. Wayfinding signs need to make it easy to find the designated portions of your building, with consistent visual communication and messaging. Eliminating unnecessary messaging and placing your directional signs in the right places on the outside and inside of your building will assist everyone, employees, and customers alike, with navigating your space.
