Braille & Tactile Signs

No matter where you operate your business, installing braille and tactile signs is a good idea. Some countries and cities require that a business have accessible ways to enter and exit a business as well as clear instructions in place for any impairment. Failure to do so can result in some hefty fines.

Having quality braille and tactile signs in your workplace can not only keep you compliant with laws but also sends a message of acceptance and diversity in the workplace.

An Enhanced Experience

For the visually impaired, having accessibility to braille enables them to be able to be independent and make educated decisions. Braille and tactile signs also let any visually impaired employees or customers know that they are important and worth the inclusion that these signs give to them.

When ordering braille or tactile signs, be sure to discuss what material is recommended for use where you plan to post the sign. Some materials can wear down easily while others can last for long periods with the right care. If you’re planning to put the sign in a high-traffic area, you’ll want to go with durable material. Common materials used for these types of signs include wood, metal, acrylic, and plastic.

Placing braille or tactile signs in your business does wonders in helping visually impaired people to maintain a high level of independence. Whether one of these types of signs is displayed in a restaurant, hotel, airport, doctor’s office, or other public location, they facilitate independence and productivity for a visually impaired person.

Inspired Trust in Your Business

You can imagine the frustration and even anxiety a visually impaired person may experience when there’s no braille or tactile sign to help guide their way. It makes it easy to understand why having these signs in your business matters to these customers. Avoiding frustration and anxiety opens a person up to having a favorable impression of a business that shows that they care.

Any business that wants to be successful knows that safety must be of a high priority. A visually impaired person who has braille or tactile signs easily accessible is more likely to be able to remain safe either as an employee or guest. In extreme cases, braille or tactile signs can help save a life if posted where a visually impaired person needs to be able to find emergency exits.

Safety, Style, and Satisfaction

With braille or tactile signs, a business can help maintain the safety of a workplace while providing anyone on site with a visual impairment to remain mobile. When ordering your sign, consider the size and location where you will be posting them. Think about signs for directions and identifiers (bathroom, break room, elevator, emergency exit, etc.).

When a business values all of the people who walk through its doors, word will get out about how welcoming and inclusive it is. Being valued can go a long way in how a business is perceived and how it performs. Investing in braille or tactile signs can do great things for any business, and we’re here to make that possible.
