New York ADA - Accessible Signs

New York replaced their sedentary wheelchair universal symbol of access with a dynamic character leaning forward with a sense of movement. All accessible restrooms, entrances, exits, vehicles and any other areas showing accessibility require signs with this new dynamic symbol.

Standard ADA Accessible Symbol vs. New York Compliant ADA Accessible Symbol

New York City building code and the federal 2010 ADA standards for Accessible Design require that you mark all accessible building elements with signage. The Local Law 47 of 2012 was passed to ensure people with disabilities are able to access and use buildings throughout New York with ease. Signage is required for indicating a building's nearest accessible entrance, public restroom, and elevator if not all of these elements of your building are accessible. This law has assisted in making signage a useful tool in making buildings more accessible rather than just indicating accessibility.
