Evacuation Signs by ADA Signs Wholesale

Evacuation Signs by ADA Signs Wholesale

Evacuation Signs are often included in the ADA Sign specs given to sign shops or building managers by the architect. Sometimes when the evacuation sign specs are received, the sign shop or the building manager, or whoever else may be in charge isn’t quite sure what to do with those evacuation sign drawings. We can help, and we can include it in the wholesale ADA Sign order!

Naturally, we all realize that the evacuation signs are very important. As of this writing (Thursday May 25th, 2017), ff you visit OSHA’s website you will see their guidelines for evacuation procedures. Additionally, Osha’s website has a page with an example evacuation map. If you would like to see the text from the Occupational Safety and Health Standards that pertains to evacuation,  It is currently available here, and it is in this section: 1910.38(c).

Besides OSHA insisting that you have evacuation routes posted, and an evacuation plan in place, don’t you want visitors and employees to easily and safely leave your building in an emergency? The Evacuation Map is clearly not a sign you can afford to skip. So don’t!

What to do with those Evacuation Route specs often included in your ADA sign specs from your architect?  A few things:

Evacuation route signs could save your business from a large number of terrible outcomes, if they are easily visible and properly placed.
Your ADA Signage throughout your business, has a uniform look. People notice the ADA Signage, even if that individual has no obvious need for the ADA features of the sign. ADA Signs stand out and scream, “Look at me! I’m official!” This is the same message your evacuation route signs should send.

In an emergency, the evacuation route signage, the ADA Signage and the Exit signs must be clear.

ADA Signs Wholesale is already covering your ADA Signs, so why not add on your evacuation signs, as well? The only other option is to pay full price for them elsewhere. Skipping the evacuation route signage is never an option.

Construction Company ADA Sign Project

Building Directory for Construction Company Sign Project

Apartment Construction ADA Sign Project

When an Apartment building is remodeled, there’s always a need for ADA compliant signage. We recently worked alongside Signs PDQ, our sister company, on the  Waverly Apartments project with Mistick Construction .

Mistick Construction’s revamp of The Waverly Apartments required ADA compliant room signs, wayfinding signs, building directory signs and even an exterior Monument Sign. The goal with any sign project is always to make the client happy. For this project, and this client, that meant:

  • Meeting all ADA requirements, to be sure the building would be in compliance.
  • Creating clear signage that would easily guide all visitors to, and through, the building.
  • Meeting the client’s aesthetic needs. Matching colors and matching materials)
  • Providing the finished product on schedule.
  • Offering the finished signs at a price that worked with the budget.
Adjustable Building Directory Sign
Editable Building Directory Sign by Signs PDQ and ADA Signs Wholesale.

The building directory sign for Waverly Apartments, needed to be informative, clear and attractive, but it also needed to be adjustable and resistant to smudges or damage. Additionally, the construction company wanted to plan ahead for changing room locations at a later time.  This meant they needed a sign that was adjustable, or could be “edited”.
Why would a building directory sign need to be adjustable, or edited? In the photo of the directory sign, S4 is clearly the Media Center. However, S4 may, or may not, always be the Media Center. If the building management someday chooses to move the Media Center, or change it’s name, they can simply order new parts for the affected rooms on the sign. If they didn’t have this type of sign, they would need an entirely new sign, whenever they needed to shift rooms.

Rather than purchasing an entirely new sign, if the Waverly changes their room layout, they will most likely only need to change pieces of the sign. The Waverly Apartments Directory Signs have been created to grow and change with the needs of the business.

If you’d like to see more of the sign types offered by ADA Signs Wholesale, we have quite a few! If you don’t see the sign type you want, by all means, just ask us! We design and manufacture virtually any type of sign you can imagine.

ADA Signs Wholesale – we offer experience.

ADA Signs Wholesale and Signs PDQ have been working together for over 20 years to bring our clients the best TRUE wholesale prices on custom ADA Signs.

Over the years, we have become experts on creating, customizing and installing ADA compliant signage.

Signs PDQ was, and still is, a full service sign shop based in Ohio. We’ve been providing all sorts of custom business signs, ranging from banners to building signs to electrical signs to Vehicle wraps and graphics to yard signs to traffic signs … and the list goes on and on, for many years! 

Naturally, a very important part of our sign product capabilities list is ADA Compliant Signage with Tactile and Braille. Why is ADA compliant signage so important? Federal, State and Local laws require all businesses to post ADA compliant signs, thanks to the The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Federal Law ensuring that those with special needs have proper access to public places and facilities. 

Initially, we didn’t manufacture our own ADA compliant signs at Signs PDQ. Like many sign shops, we reached out to wholesalers to cover the ADA sign portions of our sign projects. Unfortunately, we found that our sign shop would lose money on the ADA portion of our sign projects because the wholesale companies weren’t charging us true wholesale prices, even though we were buying large quantities of their signs. 

We understood the cost of creating signs and we understood that the ADA compliant signs had to have special features and meet specific requirements, but why couldn’t we get high quality custom compliant ADA signs at true wholesale prices? We were happy to take on projects requiring ADA compliant signs, but, since we couldn’t get true wholesale prices, Signs PDQ would sometimes have to forgo profits on certain portions of large sign projects. Like everyone else, we have bills to pay, too. We searched everywhere for a real ADA sign wholesale solution, but we didn’t have much luck.

Don and Brenda O’Toole, the owners of Signs PDQ, did what they always do when faced with a roadblock, they found a way through it. ADA Signs Wholesale was born. Don, Brenda and their team already knew a great deal about ADA Signage compliance, but they studied everything they could find about ADA rules and regulations. Additionally, they purchased and mastered the equipment needed to create custom ADA compliant signs.

Today ADA Signs Wholesale and Signs PDQ sells custom ADA and Braille business signage to Northeastern Ohio, including: Cuyahoga County, Lake County, Akron and Cleveland, Ohio… and to any business through the world.  Let us guide you through selecting and installing ADA compliant signage for your business.
