What Are ADA Wayfinding Signs?

Wayfinding signs are a class of signs that properly label store directions, room names, room numbers, egress doors, restrooms, authorized personnel rooms, and in-store maps so that customers and employees can find their way around your office or showroom. This is especially important for people who are protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act, which states that businesses need to accommodate individuals with disabilities so that they can navigate and partake in your store location. All businesses need wayfinding signs to remain ADA-compliant, but wayfinding signs can also be on-brand with your company colors and fonts so that a small feature of your corporate interior can serve its purpose while adding to the overall branding of your office.

How ADA-Compliant Wayfinding Signs Benefit Your Business

ADA-compliant wayfinding signs are essential no matter what type of business you work in, but particularly those that regularly face the public such as restaurants, bars, libraries, shops, or any establishment with regular foot traffic. There is no shortage of businesses, organizations, or especially government buildings throughout Washington, DC and its surrounding areas that meet these requirements. But it’s equally necessary for the facilities and rooms that employees with disabilities will use regularly as well.
