Braille/Textile Signage For The Disabled - Accessibility Legislation

February 13, 2017

Braille_utility_plaque_Ontario-service-350x245.jpgIn recent years, the Canada and the U.S. have created new rules about the way public spaces are created. This legislation makes it easier for people with disabilities to navigate.

Signage for the disabled has 3 main considerations. Text/Pictographs need to be raised to the touch. Text needs to be translated into braille. Surfaces cannot be glossy.

Typical uses for this signage includes Room Numbers, Room Labels, Elevators, Stairs, Fire Escapes and any other situations a disabled person may need to be aware of. The signage can be produced with a broad range of colours and finishes to match the surrounding decor. Company logos can be incorporated into the design.

At Upper Canada Stretchers we routinely design, produce and ship or install these products to suit our client’s needs. Contact us at for more information.
