About Metal Braille Signs

Metal Braille Signs

Metal Braille Signs are a durable and elegant solution for accessible signage in various environments, adhering to the standards set by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). These signs are typically crafted from materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, or brass, which not only provide a sleek and professional look but also ensure longevity and resistance to wear and tear. The incorporation of Braille along with raised tactile lettering on these metal signs is crucial for assisting visually impaired individuals. The metal surface offers a distinct tactile experience and is often finished with non-glare coatings to make the signs easily readable under different lighting conditions. Additionally, these signs are often used in high-traffic areas due to their resistance to corrosion, vandalism, and environmental elements.

Beyond their functional benefits, Metal Braille Signs also offer aesthetic versatility. They can be designed in various finishes, from brushed to polished, and can include colored accents to match or complement the design scheme of the building or space they are in. This blend of functionality and style makes metal Braille signs a preferred choice for settings that seek to maintain a high standard of design while ensuring accessibility. Their robustness and visual appeal make them ideal for corporate buildings, upscale retail spaces, and government institutions where both durability and a professional appearance are important. The use of metal in Braille signage not only enhances the environment but also reflects a commitment to inclusive design principles.

ADA Braille Restroom Signs

ADA Braille Restroom Signs play a crucial role in ensuring accessibility and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in public spaces, especially in restrooms. These signs are specifically designed to aid visually impaired individuals in navigating public facilities with greater ease. Characterized by their raised letters and Braille characters, these signs are not just a legal requirement but also a step towards inclusivity. The ADA mandates specific criteria for these signs, including size, color contrast, mounting location, and height to ensure that they are easily readable both visually and through touch.

The importance of ADA Braille Restroom Signs extends beyond mere compliance with legal standards. They represent a commitment to providing equal access to all individuals, regardless of their physical abilities. The tactile nature of Braille allows those with visual impairments to independently identify and locate restrooms without assistance, promoting a sense of autonomy and dignity. Furthermore, the consistent and universal design of these signs aids in creating a more inclusive and welcoming environment for everyone, reinforcing the societal value of accessibility and equal opportunity for people with disabilities.

ADA Braille Door Signs

ADA Braille Door Signs are an essential component in making public spaces accessible and inclusive, as mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). These signs, often found on doors of facilities such as restrooms, offices, and meeting rooms, are designed to assist visually impaired individuals in navigating buildings independently. The key features of these signs include raised letters, Braille text, and high-contrast colors, which are all part of the ADA’s guidelines. The signs must be made with non-glare materials and installed at specific heights and locations near the door they are identifying. This standardization ensures that individuals who rely on touch or limited sight can easily find and read these signs.

The significance of ADA Braille Door Signs extends beyond legal compliance; they embody the principles of equality and inclusivity in public spaces. By incorporating tactile elements such as Braille and raised characters, these signs empower visually impaired individuals to move confidently and independently in unfamiliar environments. This autonomy is vital for their dignity and social participation. Additionally, the use of these signs in public buildings and businesses signals an awareness and respect for diversity, fostering an inclusive atmosphere where the needs of all individuals, regardless of their physical abilities, are acknowledged and accommodated.

  • We are a sign manufacturer in China.

  • By default, we use DHL for transportation, and we can also use express companies such as UPS and FEDEX. These express companies can transport goods to many places of the world.

  • If your local or the lord has some specific requirements for the signage, please send these specific requirements to us. Our signage products have UL certification.

  • Under normal circumstances, excluding the necessary communication time, the approximate timeline is as follows:

    • Detailed design: 1-3 working days
    • Production time: within 15 working days
    • Shipping: DHL takes about a week

    So it takes about 25-30 days total.

    If you order a lot of signage, or are close to major holidays, such as China National Day, New Year’s Day, Christmas, and Spring Festival, it may increase.

  • Each of our quotations has fully taken into account the discounts we can offer. If you only produce 1 set of signs, basically there will be no discounts. Of course, if you order a lot of signs, a dozen sets, dozens of sets, or even hundreds of sets, these can significantly reduce the production cost. Anyway, if you have any question about the price, please contact our salesman, we will try our best to give you the best price.

  • You can always find a cheaper supplier, but there are usually some reasons for being cheap. We prefer that you consider the quality and service life of the signs. After all, if you have to replace a set of signs in a few months, even if you do not consider the production cost, the installation cost also would be a lot of money to point out. Anyway, if you have any question about the price, please contact our salesman, we will try our best to give you the best price.

  • We can produce almost all kinds of signs, but because we are a sign maker in China, you have to consider the shipping cost if you buy from us. For many cheap business signs, the production is very convenient, even if most costs in the United States will be higher than that in China, but once the expensive international shipping costs are considered, it is generally cheaper to buy locally in the United States. For such a signage case, we will recommend customers to buy locally. Of course, sourcing from China can be a good option if you’re ordering such a large quantity that international shipping isn’t the main cost, as many American advertising signage companies do.

  • Our signage products have the UL certification and fully meet the US standards, so there will be no difference in use. Specifically, some of the processes may be different, because different factories will have different equipment, and the process might also be different. In addition, the row material may be different, the biggest difference is the thickness of the material. We are a sign factory in China. In China, the unit of thickness is the metric unit, while the US uses the English unit. For example, the 1/2-inch thick material used in the signs made locally in the United States is not available here, and usually uses 10mm (0.39″) or 15mm(0.59″).

  • We usually use vector design files in ai, cdr, eps, svg formats, vector design drawing files in PDF format are also available. If your design drawing is made by AutoCAD, please provide the version of AutoCAD 2007.

  • Very sorry, we suggest you contact your local designer to design your logo from scratch. This design work requires a lot of communication work, and we are in China, the time difference and language differences will make the communication very difficult. We can advise you or help you modify your logo design so it can be produced.

If you have sent out payment, if we have started the work, including detailed design, production, etc., you will be required to pay the cost that has occurred, if you paid with PayPal fee, then the corresponding PayPal handling fee will also be borne by you.

  • Yes, we provide color matching service, it’s free. We use the Pantone color card for color matching by default, you only need to provide the Pantone value of the color, but generally speaking, the amount of paint required for the production of a set of signs is very small, which is not suitable for using a dedicated color matching machine. Therefore, in most cases we use manual color correction, which is only a simulation of Pantone colors, and we cannot guarantee an exact match.

  • We lovingly pack every order to ensure that your signs arrive in pristine condition. UPS assures us that their delivery personnel take every precaution to handle your package with care.

  • Unfortunately, DHL and UPS won’t deliver to a P.O. box, so we’ll need a physical street address.

  • Unless the installation of large signs will involve the use of professional engineering equipment, the installation of signs is not complicated in most cases. However, we still recommend that you hire a professional sign installer who can make your sign look better, stronger, and more safe, especially if your signs are illuminated signs.

  • We are very sorry, we are a sign factory in China and currently do not have any offices and branches in other countries and regions, so we cannot provide you with installation services. But we have partners all over the world, and if you can’t find the right installer, we can help you find one.

  • Usually the maintenance of the signage is very simple, just wipe off the dust with a soft cloth dipped in clean fresh water. Never use organic cleaners, especially if your signs are painted or electroplated. In addition, for illuminated signs, placing the AC transformer in an environment with good ventilation conditions can effectively improve the service life of the AC transformer.

  • For most LED lighted signs, it is possible to open the signs and renew the LED. However, we recommend that you find a local electrician to do it for you, as it will involve wiring and other work. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
