Elevator signs and graphics are critical signage tools that establishments must invest in to ensure the safety and ease of use of elevator units as well as similar areas inside a building. These signs act as safety warnings and reminders about the safe use of lifts and similar types of machinery within establishments. They serve as wayfinding tools as well as informative signs that help users stay safe while riding elevator units.
Most of us have been in buildings where finding the right way becomes a challenge. Many times, we have to look for directions and ask around to get to our desired locations. Imagine how difficult it could get to navigate through the unknown territory for a person who is facing disability. With ADA elevator braille signs installed in your office or store, you can ensure that your customers do not have to go through this. This also shows that you care about your customers and take measures to make their life easy.
Elevators need two types of ADA compliant signs, first is used for identification and second is used for directing towards the elevator. The signs used for identification purposes are placed next to the elevator door and inside the cabin. The other type, i.e. directional is placed in corridors and lobby areas that guide people towards the elevators, escalators, and stairs. Just like all other ADA signs, the letters should be highly visible with non-glare high-contrast lettering combined with raised tactile lettering and braille for those who have visual disabilities. To accommodate those who use wheelchairs, there should be a symbol as well.
There are various types of elevator safety signs. Some indicate the location of elevators, while others serve as notices for passengers who are allowed or unauthorized to use the machines. You can likewise have elevator floor number signs made to indicate the maximum load capacity of an elevator unit or to warn passengers about the dangers of using the device during emergencies.
