Beautiful Signs for a Better Planet


Mark Accessible Elevators with Sustainable Signage

Green Dot Sign offers ready to order identification and directional ADA-compliant elevator signage to mark and guide to elevators.  This signage type is especially useful in large, confusing, or somewhat dark building floors.

Additionally, for those with physical disabilities or injuries, using the stairs is not an option and locating the elevator is mandatory. If not all elevators in a building are ADA compliant, directional signs leading to the handicap accessible elevator are required.

We make elevator signage with both the traditional and modified styles of the International Symbol of Accessibility (ISA or person in a wheelchair pictogram).  In New York and Connecticut the modified, active ISA is required.  In other states it is often acceptable to use this newer pictogram, however, it is wise to confirm with your local inspector before ordering signs.

Interior elevator cars have unique sign requirements within the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design.  Green Dot Sign is in the process of creating a definitive Guide to ADA Sign Requirements that will fully review legal guidelines. For now, please see Standards sections §216.7, §407.2.3 for elevator sign requirements.  For hoistway signage, reach out via phone or the Form on our Custom Signs page for the necessary hoistway signage.

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.
