Womens Restroom Sign Purpose and Materials
A handicap accessible womens restroom sign or bathroom sign is one of the most common ADA-compliant signs. As a permanent room, bathrooms are required to be identified with signs detailed in §703 of the 2010 ADA standards. Please see our ADA guide for more information, or reach out to us with questions.
This ADA-compliant sign should only be used to mark womens’ toilets that meet the accessible restroom requirements in §603 of the 2010 ADA standards.
Additionally, this sign uses the newer, modified International Symbol of Accessibility (ISA). We prefer the new ISA, and it is required in New York and Connecticut. Outside of NY and CT check if it is okay to use the active person in a wheelchair pictogram with your local building inspector.
This sign is eligible for our end of life recycling program. When your womens restroom sign needs change simply ship your signs to us and we’ll take care of the rest.
We first plane the raised sign elements off the wood base and dispose of them responsibly. Next, the wood sign base is shredded and the wood fibers get re-used as animal bedding, then as fertilizer, and finally they return to the earth as soil. We hope you can appreciate this is more responsible compared to the fossil fuel derived plastics used in most ADA signs. To make it easy to participate in our product recycling program we extend a 10% Green Dot Sign® credit for the value of the returned signs. To learn more or get started, visit our Eco-Friendly Approach page and expand the “recycling” section at the bottom.

Many buildings have signs in different styles, often made by different companies at different times. Our aspen based standard ADA signs have consistent style so your whole office, store, facility or campus will look professional and uniform. This means that if you already have our standard signs in place, you can add this Womens Restroom sign and know it will look like it was always there.
