Since the ADA's inception, we have been manufacturing signs with EMBOSSED Grade 2 Braille. Embossed braille is the preferred braille type of the vision impaired population due to it's rounded or domed tops.
By embossing braille, the braille is an integral part of the sign, unlike other processes that attach braille by adhesive or drilling holes and friction fitting beads to the sign face.
Our state of the art equipment ensures that the embossed braille is made with precision accuracy on each and every sign. For environments such as schools where vandalism is a concern, the braille can be backfilled with a hardening compound for a tough, durable sign.
See our Technical Bulletin explaining the proposed changes to the ADA regarding braille. These proposed changes are nothing new to us, since we have always made our braille to these new requirements.
There are limitless color choices for these signs. We can match any Pantone color or paint chip to make the signs match the building's decor.
We have several standard signs such as restroom and exit signs, but the majority of our signs are custom made to either our designs or architect's designs.
