Wayfinding Signs are signs that give us directions and guide us on how we are to maneuver within a specific area or situation.
Two decades ago, Congress passed the Americans with Disabilities Act. To the sign industry, that meant providing signage that could guide and assist us all.
New standards for Braille characters, typestyles, type sizes, message contrast, symbols, background gloss, tactile surfaces and sign placement are introduced to govern exterior ADA / Wayfinding signage, rendering it more helpful for all users, including persons with disabilities. Signs located in public areas must accommodate all who rely on signage in order to be properly directed from point A to point B.
Continental Signs Etc. takes pride in producing the components of accessible interior and exterior ADA and Wayfinding signs. These components include direct-to-wall mounted signs, self-standing signs, Braille tactile signs and plaques, framed signs, modular systems and suspended and projecting directional and informational signs.
When properly developed, the core elements of Sign programs work together to assist users in knowing where they are, recognizing their destination and safely moving around. At Continental Signs Etc. we stress design flexibility, superior functionality and attractive appearance to provide lasting ADA and Wayfinding Signage solutions.
