Vaughn Next Century Learning Center is a large urban public school located in Pacoima and is part of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). In 1993, Vaughn became the first conversion charter school in the nation that was authorized by LAUSD. One of the five campuses is Vaugh International Studies Academy which is a high school. They were working with Del Amo Construction who is a long-time customer of ours, and we were awarded the job for their ADA signs.
ADA signs are signs that are required in buildings made for public use by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The signs we made for Vaughn include room identification signs, exit signs, exit route signs, exit stairs down signs, restroom signs, maximum occupancy signs, fire riser/sprinkler control signs, fire extinguisher signs, and evacuation maps.
Hiring a professional sign company to handle your ADA signage is important because there are a lot of rules and regulations attached to these signs, and if you do not adhere to these rules you will not pass the fire inspection and therefore, would not be allowed to open the business to the public. Signage that helps ensure the safety of the people inside is crucial, and you also need to make sure that those with vision impairment are able to read the signs as well. We do so by adding Braille translations and tactile lettering to the signs. Tactile lettering is raised copy that can be felt, so someone could feel the letters to read the sign.
Our ADA signs are completely customizable when it comes to material and color, as long as you adhere to other regulations such as font type and non-glare material. This means that we can make you room identification signs and restroom signs that will look great with your interior décor, while ensuring that you are up to code.
