What is a Tactile Character?
Characteristics of Restroom Signs
ADA restroom signs must meet a number of guidelines in order to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. These include having a pictogram of a person with an accessibility symbol, Braille lettering, text descriptions, and high contrast colors such as blue & white or black & white. They must also be between 48 and 60 inches above the floor and have rounded corners to eliminate any sharp objects that could potentially cause injury. Lastly, they should have a matte finish to allow for easy cleaning. To create an inviting atmosphere for all customers, it is important to regularly check and update ADA signage accordingly. Following all guidelines set forth by the ADA helps ensure that everyone can easily find the facilities they need without feeling excluded or confused.
