Indoor Code Signs For ADA Compliance

If you are needing indoor ADA signage, Connecting Signs is your best choice for getting this done. ADA Code signs are a unique type of sign because they’re required to be made with specific features and to be installed in specific locations under many municipality codes. Many requirements must be met for all indoor, directional (wayfinding) signs. In fact, if you are not compliant, you could get fined or an occupancy permit will not be provided. The guidelines differ slightly for informational and directional signs and the application should be considered.
