The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) turns 30 years old in 2020. Originally passed in 1990, the major revision to the Standards for Accessible Design (SAD) in 2010 gave the law more teeth – compliance is now required and enforceable on the federal level.

Since the ADA views visual impairments as a disability covered under the Act, there are specific guidelines pertaining to signage products. The two categories covered under interior signage are Wall Mounted, Ceiling Mounted or Projected. Within the Wall Mounted category, Identification of permanent room signs, Directional signs, and Informational signs are covered. Within the Ceiling or Projected Mounted category, Directional and Information signs are covered.
