Restroom Signage Requirements

Maanik Singh
ADA restroom signs are essential to ensure safety and accessibility for all individuals. Proper installation should follow federal guidelines in order to remain compliant. This prevents penalties and legal repercussions while providing patrons with an inclusive environment. These signs should include a symbol designating the facility as a restroom, located above or to the left of the text, with no adaptation other than size and visible from at least 50 feet away for those with disabilities. The symbol and text should contrast enough so that they are distinguishable by those with low vision, and must include Braille characters below for those who are blind or have low vision. Changes must be pre-approved by enforcement agencies, providing organizations a safe and accessible experience for all patrons.
