Guidance on the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design

Most of your ADA signage questions are easily answered in chapters 216 and 703.

  1. ADA Standards are not difficult to follow but should be reviewed for each project.
  2. A common mistake is assuming tactile signs are required which can lead to additional costs and restrict design options.
  3. Use the ADA Standards Guide but be sure to cross-check your interpretation with your local fire and building inspectors.
