Signs Los Angeles | Important Rules & Regulations for Signs

Rules and Regulations for Handicap Parking Signs and Spaces that you should know.

Don't take chances with handicap signs at your business, we make handicap signs from restrooms to parking spaces. Our signs meet the high standards required by the AMA and we know where and how high to put them!

Accessible handicap parking spaces must be positioned at the closest accessible entrance to the facility. The space has to be big enough for a vehicle, at least 96 inches wide, with additional space on either left or right that acts as an access isle and should be wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair. Two accessible spaces can share an access isle.

A sign with the international symbol of accessibility must be located in front of the parking space, mounted high enough to be visible at all times. Van accessible spaces are to have additional signage stating "Van-Accessible" mounted below the international symbol of accessibility. The AMA states that the letters and numbers on signs are to have a width-to-height ratio between 3:5 and a stroke-width-to-height ratio between 1:5 and 1:10. Minimum character height is 3 inches. Confused? Don't worry, we at The Sign Studio understand all of it and will supply you with signs which meet all the standards for handicap parking.

We do all handicap signs including restrooms.

Signs Los Angeles | Safety Signs - Keeping Us All Safer............

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Fri, Aug 12, 2011 @ 06:08 AM

Safety Signs - Keeping Us All Safer..........

Big orange diamonds mean Construction Ahead. Bright red octagons mean STOP. Yellow or red triangles mean YIELD. Safety signs like these help keep all of us safer whether we are driving, are passengers or are pedestrians on the roads, streets and highways.

Consider the example of a car accident. One of the first things insurance companies will do is examine the scene and look at any safety signs in place. The signs dictate expected behavior and disregarding those signs can end in disaster.

Safety signs create a set of norms we all learn to follow. By following the rules these signs symbolize, we work together to ensure safety for everyone on the road. These signs and norms are so important we teach them to children at the earliest of ages to help protect these vulnerable citizens.

Safety signs don't stop in traffic, though. Signs to encourage us all to be watchful include signs for hazardous conditions, dangers in natural locations and many other hazards we face each and every day.

The sign pros at The Sign Studio can work with you to create the best safety signs for your location to keep everyone out of harm's way. Contact us today!
