Beautiful Signs for a Better Planet


Use Accessible Exit Signs to Guide Those in Wheelchairs

Here’s the problem handicap accessible exit signs solve: imagine you are in a wheelchair or helping someone with an impairment.  You make your way to a doorway, only to discover that it is not accessible.  Now what?  For those with disabilities and the people helping them, it is important to be able to find a handicap accessible exit.

Handicap accessible exit signs are important for facilities where not all exits are handicap accessible.  The ADA has slightly different requirements for entrance and exit markings.  For exits, signage related to accessibility is not required, however, there are directional sign requirements.  Essentially, if a directional Exit Sign is required by 1003.2.13.6 of the 2000 IBC or 1007.7 of the 2003 IBC, then the sign must comply with visual character requirements per §703.5 of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design.  All of the signs in this Green Dot Sign Accessible Exit sub-category meet ADA Standards §703.5 requirements.

Order a Sample – Color Selection & Quality

Within our sub-category product pages there are 13 colors of content and braille to choose from. Additionally, a clear braille option is available. Colors can appear differently on computer screens than they do in-person. To be sure your signs meet expectations, we suggest ordering a Green Dot Sign sample!

Our sample sign is handcrafted in Minnesota with the same machinery and processes as our Ready to Order ADA signs. Sample signs are our most common 7.25″ by 9.25″ size. They are made of aspen from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, have a beveled edge, and contain 3D non-toxic printed content. The front of samples has a random pictogram with lettering and braille in one of our 13 standard colors. The sample back shows all of our standard 13 colors in both letters and a raised square.

Holding a high-quality Green Dot Sign product will make you appreciate its unique beauty. Selecting a 3D printed color within your interior environment will ensure you are pleased with your choice for years to come.
