Stairs to Left Sign Purpose and Materials
Directional signage, such as this stairs to left sign, is used for stakeholders ease of use as well directions in case of emergency. Many times people conflate emergency with “fire” but the most common scenarios are health related, such as heart attacks and similar issues. Would you want the EMT to know where the stairs are to your offices?
This sign does not include braille and is not required to do so as specified in the 2010 ADA standards. It does meet all visual character requirements in the standards. Additionally, this sign is offered with raised characters to achieve aesthetic continuity with your ADA signage.
In addition to the stairs to the left sign here, we also offer ready-to-order stairwell signs so you can order all the sign you need for your project quickly.
Please note if the stairs you are identifying are part of an exit passageway or exit discharge, you should use an exit directional sign, not this sign. Exits are one of the areas with specific ADA sign requirements. This should be use to mark stairs only, rather then “exit stairs”.
If you’d like to customize this sign beyond the color and braille options available on this page, please give us a call or visit the custom ADA room sign page and fill out our easy form.
This ADA 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.
