What is ADA material?

ADA refers to the Americans with Disabilities Act. Material must meet a certain set of standards to comply with the legislation. ADA materials vary in their substance but require a set level of contrast, particular thickness, and no shine or reflective properties. We carry several materials that comply with the ADA, including Rowmark’s ADA Alternative plastic. Each compliant product is labeled clearly on the website so you can easily find the material that fits both your job and the law.

How do you make ADA signage?

Creating ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) signage involves following specific guidelines to ensure accessibility and compliance with regulations. ADA signs are designed to be easily readable and understandable for people with various disabilities. ADA signage requirements cover factors such as visual contrast, tactile characters, Braille, and mounting height. Choose materials that provide good visual contrast and are durable.

Characters on ADA signage should be tactile, meaning they can be touched and felt. The characters should have a raised surface and meet specific height and spacing requirements. The tactile characters and braille can be created using either a laser engraver, UV-LED printer, or rotary engraving methods and may require a specialized license to create.

Always check the latest ADA guidelines, as they may be subject to updates or changes. Additionally, local building codes may have specific requirements that should be considered during the design and installation process.
