Handicap Stenciling and Signage in Your Parking Lot
Handicap Parking Signs Requirements
Besides the ADA parking striping, signs with the international symbol of accessibility must be posted on the parking spaces. To be visible to the driver, signs should be 60 inches above the surface.
There is quite a complicated issue concerning a difference between the posted sign and the painted symbol. Imagine a situation when the symbol is painted but there is no signage. What rule should the drivers follow? The thing is that painted symbol doesn't indicate a handicap space because a sign is the required marker.
On the other hand, sign without a symbol does not allow handicapped drivers to use these spaces. Though ADA parking space requirements may differ in some states, both sign and symbol are obligatory to install in every parking lot.
The accessibility sign should be a 40-inch blue square with a white international accessibility symbol inside. The sign looks in a similar way as handicap striping. It can contain different inscriptions including” Handicapped parking”, “Reserved parking”, “Parking only”, “Van accessible” and other.
This size and shape are not obligatory as manufacturers can produce specific sizes and shapes if needed. Also, logo and wording can be used with any material including aluminum, steel and other.
