Beautiful Signs for a Better Planet
Exterior ADA signs are often overlooked aspect of sign system design. It is not unusual for designers to specify the same design and materials for interior and exterior applications with disastrous results. Typical ADA signs fail when exposed to exterior conditions.
Failures usually fall into all or one these four categories:
Green Dot Sign® is committed first and foremost to sustainable signage solutions. Rather then fossil fuel based plastics we use infinitely recyclable metals as the base for our exterior ADA signage. Each sign is 100% recyclable at end of life and during manufacture we capture and recycle all waste.
Instead of plastic, we machine solid aluminum or bronze plate. Each sign is then painted, letters and pictograms are sanded to expose the natural metal, then a top coat is applied. All paints are automotive grade, two part catalyzed paints with the longest possible exterior life. Fading will occur around 10 years, but usable life is much longer.
If your facility has specific rooms accessed through exterior doorways ADA compliant signage is required. Common examples include restrooms, mechanical rooms and similar permanent rooms and spaces.
