ADA & Engraved Signs

The term “ADA Signs” has come into common use in the architectural, construction and signage
industries with the advent of the Americans With Disabilities Act, or ADA. The term is sometimes
misunderstood, as some people think it is synonymous with braille signs. Signs with braille and
raised characters are the most visible manifestation of the law requiring access to the built
environment, but the sign standards in the ADA Accessibility Guidelines, or ADAAG, require
much more than just braille and raised characters on some signs.
