Providing ADA-Compliant Signage in Lancaster County, PA

ADA-compliant signage provides wayfinding information to persons with disabilities–the blind, visually impaired, and mobility impaired. As part of the legislation passed in 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) established guidelines for signage required for compliance. Businesses with ten or more employees must comply with the Act. 

ADA signage communicates that your place of business accommodates persons with a disability. Businesses utilizing ADA-compliant wayfinding signage create a welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone.
