Many methods are available for making signage that meets the Americans With Disabilities Act, or ADA, guidelines. But none are as easy as a new and patented process created by Direct Color Systems, which is UV LED printing.
If your company is in the business of producing and selling ADA signage or you want to make them in-house for your own company, UV LED printing has numerous benefits that make the entire process easier. Here are three ways this process beats other methods for ease of use:
1. It Simplifies the Process
Many other ADA signage creation techniques require you to use different pieces of equipment in numerous steps. But this new method helps you meet the ADA requirements with just one machine in only a few steps. The printed signs can match the signs a company already has that were created with a different technique, so all the signs are cohesive.
2. Saves Time
Another reason this method is easier is the time it takes to create a sign. The UV LED printer can create a simple 6-by-8-inch sign (152mm x 203mm) with Braille and with no background in less than four minutes; adding a raised pictogram only adds about 30 seconds to the total printing time.
3. Works With Your Materials
With other methods, you must ensure that you have a substrate that complies with ADA guidelines. But with UV LED printing, you can often use a material you have and the printer will make it fit regulations. For example, if you have a glossy metal that won’t work in its original format, this printer can print a matte color over it to make it fit regulations. Nonetheless, the company also sells compliant substrates.
Direct Color Systems’ UV LED printers create signage with colors, raised characters and pictograms that meet ADA signage standards. Plus, the company offers software to design the signs. The software gives the user options to use standardized designs that fit ADA guidelines or to customize designs they already have. You can find these UV LED printers and software on the Direct Color Systems website.
