Thermoformed signs
Posted by: SharonToji (---.oc.oc.cox.net)

WE are working with AccuBraille to develop special thermoformed signs to comply with the new provisions of the ADA 2010 sign section. If you haven't looked into thermoforming yet, I have to tell you that I think it's the long awaited answer to a one piece ADA sign that doesn't have any of the drawbacks that metal signs have. (If you think photopolymer signs, or even most sandblasted signs are truly one piece, sorry, but I have to disagree!).

We're working out ways to design signs with separate tactile and visual graphics, with everything subsurface so it can't be scratched off or wear off. The raised characters are the best I've ever seen -- so readable by touch. The braille is perfectly rounded.

Although I wish we could afford our own equipment for the molding, luckily it's available on a wholesale basis, and we can still do a lot of the work ourselves to save money.

I really recommend that you look into it. AccuBraille in San Francisco is a good source.

Anyway, I'm calling it the Holy Grail of ADA signs.
