Placing Your ADA Signs in Compliance to Regulations

In commercial buildings or institutions we find a lot of ADA door signs which a very common sight in these places. If the building owner purchases and displays ADA signage, it is a simple and cheap way to achieve compliance with ADA standards.

Building owners are to comply with the standards set by the American Disabilities Act. In order to do so, you will need to know the safe locations for hanging your tangible signs near doorways.

If you have single doors, you need to mount your ADA signs at the latch side of the door leading into the room or office. This is the most convenient area for any signage to be found easily. And this is also in compliance with ADA standards.

For double doors where only one side is being used and the other side is inactive, then the ADA sign should be mounted on the inactive side. If a door is not being used to enter the area in a double door, then the immobilized door should bear the mounted ADA sign.

ADA signs should be put on the right wall of the right handed door of a double door which are both actively swinging.

If you have single doors and there is no space on the latch side to mount your ADA sign, then you can put it on the right side of the door.

You should look for the next nearest adjacent wall to put up your ADA signs if there are no wall spaces available that are indicated in the ADA requirements.

IF you want to see actual examples of ADA sign mounted on building walls, then you should visit any building and see for yourself where they have mounted their ADA signs. If you want guidance on where to mount your door sign locations, you can simply check out the ADA signs in hospitals and office building and you will know where the proper place they should be are.

The location must be safe to mount your ADA sign of the room it is indicating. If you put your ADA sign properly, then the people looking for their rooms can be kept clear of swinging doors.

In the ADA official guidelines, a floor measurement of 18 inches by 18 inches minimum is used. This measurement starts from the swing of the door edge to the center of the ADA lettering of the sign.

You will know that enough clearance has been allow with a 45 degree angel of opened door. The minimum measurement of 18 inches from the sign face and to the right of the door swing should provide the needed clearance for safe mounting.

If the area will experience heavy foot traffic, then you can choose to leave more space. You need to keep the sign close enough to the door to clearly indicate that it is meant to identify that room.
