How To Create Decorative Tactile ADA Signs


ADA Signs Can Have More Than Braille

Photopolymer allows you to create raised decorative tactile elements on ADA signs. Raised elements enhance the look and feel of  ADA signs while often allowing for a unique design approach.

The raised elements on a photopolymer sign get exposed to UV light using a film negative. This mean that almost any 2-dimensional image can be tactile – Braille dots, text, room numbers, boarders, logos and decorative elements.

Photopolymer is the ideal choice for complicated tactile because there are no more steps in the fabrication process. Click here to see how photopolymer signs get fabricated.
