The raster bead ada method has emerged as the preferred process for creating tactile/Braille signage for the blind and visually impaired. The process is quite simple: our router drills holes into the substrate, and the Raster Braille Tool automatically inserts the spheres. Because the spheres fit perfectly into the holes, the resulting Braille is resistant to wear and exceedingly durable.
The project is completed by digitally printing your design on the back surface. (if clear acrylic is fabricated).
Photopolymer ADA signs are a one piece integral sign, thus, standing up to vandalism better than the rest. Nothing is absolutely vandal-proof and almost any sign can get damaged or destroyed. But, your vandals have to work very very hard with photopolymer fabricated signs to do so. The signs will remain on the wall and intact… keeping your wayfinding ADA compliant.
To create tactile elements, the Photopolymer resin is exposed to UV light using a high relocation film negative. This combination allows for very detailed raised graphics and elements.
ADA Signs, customized and Braille Compliant
Custom ADA Braille Signs are designed to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. They are available in various designs and styles to suit the needs of different businesses.
The most common types of ADA Braille Signs are Raster Bead, Printed Braille, and Raised Letters.
Raster Bead Signs are made up of a series of raised dots that form a grid. This grid can be customized to form any desired design or message. Printed Braille Signs are made by printing the braille dots onto a substrate. Raised Letters are made by raising the letters of the alphabet above the surface of the substrate.
Custom Printed backgrounds can be added to any of these types of signs to create a unique look for your business.
What is an ADA Sign with Braille That is Compliant?
The term “ADA Signs” has come into everyday use in the architectural, construction, and signage industries with the advent of the Americans With Disabilities Act, or ADA. The Americans with Disabilities Act regulates accessibility and includes requirements for signage conveniently located and easy to read visually and through tactile touch.
In common parlance, “ADA Signs” is often synonymous with braille signs. Signs with braille and raised characters are the most visible manifestation of the law requiring access to the built environment. Still, the sign standards in the ADA Accessibility Guidelines (or ADAAG) require much more than just braille and raised characters on some signs.
The ADA dictates three broad categories of requirements.
- Whether or not a sign is required
- Sign design requirements, including font, spacing, and similar details
- Precisely where a sign must be installed, and broad requirements dictating where signs may not be installed
In general, almost every sign that would be considered an “architectural” sign must comply with one or more of the ADA Guidelines. If a sign identifies a permanent room or space of a facility (including exits), directs or informs about functional areas of the facility, identifies, directs to, or informs about accessible features of the facility, it must comply. Signs for advertising and marketing purposes, temporary signs, company logos, and names are examples of signs or sections that do not have to be compliant.
