Beautiful Signs for a Better Planet


Post Area of Refuge Signage to Meet ADA Requirements

In the event of an emergency it is important for those who can not evacuate on their own to know where to go in a building for assistance.  The area where the disabled should wait for assistance is called an area of refuge. Area of Refuge identification Signs are used to mark where to wait to help, and directional Area of Refuge Signs guide to the exact place to wait. Area of Refuge Signage identification and directional signage is specifically required in §216.3, §216.4.2 and §216.4.3, Titles II and III of the  2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design.

Our Area of Refuge signs include either the standard or modified ISA (international symbol of accessibility or person in a wheelchair pictogram).  Know that the newer, active, modified ISA is required in NY and CT. If your facility is not in either of those states, call to your local building inspector to confirm ISA 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.
