Please Use Other Door Sign Purpose and Materials
This “Please Use Other Door” sign clearly communicates which door is to be used. It is common in offices, campuses, and buildings of all types.
If this sign is being applied to glass, we have several options that can be placed on the other side of the glass in order to cover up the adhesives and make a polished appearance. Just reach out and we can confirm our standard options.
A Use Other Door sign does not require tactile characters per §216, Titles II and III of the DOJ’s 2010 ADA Standards. This sign does meet visual character requirements per §703.5. For overall consistency of your sign package, this sign has raised features like those in our tactile signs. This is purely aesthetic.
We make all types of custom facility signage, including large corporate sign packages. If a hanging or project sign suits your needs better, or you’d like a sign with a different font, size or shape, just let us know. Either way, give us a call or use the form at the bottom of our custom signs page. We look forward to hearing from you!
This Use Other Door sign is eligible for our end of life recycling program. When your 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.
