ADA compliant signs

At Vital Signs, we offer ADA signs that meet all of the requirements! We add a combination of either braille, tactile text, or a pictogram identifying the room, feature or space behind a given doorway. ADA compliant sign requirements also dictate non-glare finishes and high contrast ratios between background and content. At Vital Signs, we know all of the specifics and can make it happen!

What to Know About New Jersey Dynamic Accessibility Symbol Laws

Overview

New Jersey has adopted new accessibility legislation, which requires the International Symbol of Accessibility to be changed to a new image showing a person seated in a wheelchair while appearing to be in motion. A.8193 and S.6846 are two separate laws both stating the same requirements for the new icon. These laws also require the removal of the word “Handicapped” on any signs, and will replace it with the word “Accessible.” This change started as a small movement, but was signed into law.

These changes were made in order to maintain “a people first perspective, and [place] the emphasis on the person, rather than the disability.” [1]

Only new signs will be required to include the Dynamic Accessibility Symbol. Signs that were already in place as of November 25, 2014 will remain as is because they were grandfathered in. When it is time for old signs to be updated, they will be replaced by signs displaying the new symbol.
