No. There is no such requirement for ADA Parking Signs. Even the ADA traffic signs are
not required to be non-glare. Only indoors signs which designate permanent rooms and spaces are required to be non-glare because people with limited vision are not able to process glare or reflection very well.
Our parking signs are offered in three grades of reflectivity: Engineer Grade, High Intensity, and Diamond Grade for extra visibility in dark and dim light conditions.
Directional ADA Parking Signs facilitate wayfinding and make the traffic flow seamless. Signs with a directional arrow provide information and guidance to parking space users. For example, a Reserved Parking sign with a handicapped symbol and an arrow helps locate the space kept reserved for people with any physical disability. Instead of looking lost and confused, disabled visitors feel more confident and clear about navigating in your parking structures.
We offer FlexBollard with Sign Post that combines the durability of the bollard and the convenience of a post. A Flexbollard easily bends when struck by a vehicle and automatically rebounds to its original form saving you replacement cost. ADA FlexBollard features the ISA (International Symbol of Accessibility) and reflective strips to meet the ADA requirements. The flexible signpost and bollard combination meets ADA height regulations too (Federal ADA specifications require that the bottom edge of the sign must be more than 5 feet from the ground). Overall height of our ADA FlexBollard is 8.5 feet (Bollard 52", Post 96", Mounting Hardware 6") making it in compliance with ADA. Bollard comes with necessary hardware required to install it on any kind of surface like Asphalt, concrete, and natural ground. However, you have to buy signs separately.
Supplemental Van Accessible Signs are available in 6” x 18”, 6” x 12”, 8” x 12”, and 9” x 18”. Supplemental signs are used in conjunction with other signs like stop signs, guide signs, warning signs, street name signs, and more. Reserved Parking Van Accessible Sign measures 12 inches x 18 inches. ADA requires Van-accessible parking spaces to have additional ‘text’ or ‘sign’ below the accessibility symbol to mark the van-accessible area specifically.
Yes, SignatureSign Designer Signs can also be ADA compliant as long as they carry the official, universally recognized International Symbol of Accessibility and are mounted 5 feet above the ground as provided under ADA Section 703.7.2.1. Apart from the requirement of ISA, there’s no other requirement in Section 502.6 of the ADA for parking space identification signs. However, you may check with local codes for precise handicap parking rules and access signs posting guidelines.

These labels with adhesive backing can be used to retrofit an old faded or out-of-date sign. 3M Engineer grade sign reflects light from headlights. Printed using 3M MCS (Matched Component System) inks and films designed specifically for traffic and parking signs, the labels comply with DOT rules for parking lots and offer 7 years of outdoor life.
Labels, however, come with square corners. After application to a board or sign with rounded corners, the face can easily be trimmed with a utility knife.
