NW Sign Solutions is an industry leader in business signs, banners, ADA and directional signs, vehicle wraps, and more. ADA signs in Vancouver WA allow companies to assist their visitors and comply with federal law.
In 2020, many Americans acknowledged and celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
On July 26, 1990, then-President George H.W. Bush signed this landmark civil rights law into effect. It immediately afforded protections from discrimination to Americans with mental and/or physical medical conditions. Protected disabilities included deafness, blindness, mobility impairments, intellectual disabilities, and many, many more.
As the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice explains, “The ADA has transformed American society and enabled a generation of Americans with disabilities to thrive.”
The ADA welcomed and embraced millions of Americans into the broader world of American life. It ensured equal access to employment, facilities, and events and mandated both public and private entities to make accommodations for those with disabilities.
The act covered an enormous range of public, private, and social spheres. It protected people reliant on service animals, provided accommodations for those in need of auxiliary communications aids, and required telecommunications companies to arrange for programming to be accessible to those with hearing deficits.
And those are just the highlights. There are very few areas of modern American life that haven’t been profoundly affected by the ADA.
We’re proud to continue to honor the enduring legacy of the ADA by working with clients to produce ADA signs that are durable and informative. Our clients want to remain in compliance with the requirements of the ADA, and our talented and informed staff helps them do so.
We can populate your store, building, construction site, and more with ADA-compliant signage. The ADA requires not just accessibility but signage designed to be easily read and understood visually and via touch.
The ADA specifies when and where signage is required as well as what design elements must be included on the signage itself. Thus, ADA signage is a form of architectural signage because it informs relevant parties about the facility itself.
It should be noted that the ADA does not always require accessibility signage when that signage is designed solely for marketing or advertising. Think company logos, for example.
NW Sign Solutions
So how can NW Sign Solutions help you? We can help design and produce quality signage that, where and when necessary, will keep you on the right side of the ADA.
Some signage is absolutely essential, depending on the business or event in question: street signs, monument signs, directional signs, window signs, lobby signs and graphics, vehicle wraps. Not all will need to be ADA-compliant, however. We’ll help you keep track of what’s what.
We produce ADA signs in Vancouver using a variety of high-quality and durable materials. These include metals, wood, plastics, vinyl, and more.
ADA signs are typically necessary at events and concerts and within businesses open to the public. They can be used both indoors and outdoors and can be designed to last a good long while in all sorts of environments and atmospheres. Thus, an investment in an ADA sign today is an investment in the future of your enterprise.
Think of all the ways in which customers access the spaces within your facility or shop. Think of the entryways and exits, bathrooms, customer service desks, and other spaces.
These are all spaces perfectly suited for ADA signage. In fact, it’s usually a good idea to remain compliant with the ADA even in instances in which the ADA may not even apply.
