ADA State and Federal Law

The ADA prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in employment, programs and services provided by state and local governments, goods and services provided by private companies, and in commercial facilities.

The ADA was signed into law on July 26, 1990. It contains requirements for new construction, for alterations or renovations to buildings and facilities, and for improving access to existing facilities of private companies providing goods or services to the public.

A quick synopsis of the 4.30 Signage requirements are as follows:

4.30.3 - Characters and numbers on signs shall be sized according to the viewing distance from which they are to read.

4.30.4 - Letters and numerals shall be raised 1/32" and shall be accompanied by Grade 2 Braille. Raised characters shall be 5/8" to 2" high.

4.30.5 - Background of signs to be non-glare finish. Characters to contrast with background.

4.30.6 - For permanent rooms and spaces, signs shall be mounted on latch side of the door. 60" on center. No obstructions in front of sign.
