Braille Signage Positions.

Posted by James Lavender on Thursday, July 04, 2013

Braille Signage Positions.

We are often asked to provide information as to the positioning of Braille Signage for access and mobility doors within a public building. The code states that the signs are to be placed not less than 1200mm and not more than 1600mm above the finished floor level. Signs that have a single line of tactile characters must be placed not less than 1250mm and not more than 1350mm above the finished floor level. Signs identifying rooms etc are to be placed on the wall on the latch side of the door with the leading edge of the sign to be located between 50mm and 300mm from the architrave. If it is not possible to place the sign within this position then the sign may be placed on the door itself. 

Another question that is often raised, is in relation to the RH (Right hand) and LH (Left Hand) text that is shown on braille signs. This effectively means the side of the toilet that the disabled person (when backing into position) transfers off their wheelchair and onto the toilet seat. We will often ask the customer for the handing of the grab rail as this will also provide the correct handing for the sign.

We have provided the link to the current Access Code for Buildings Schedule 1, Access for people with a disability. Refer to Part D4 Braille and Tactile Signage. We would encourage you to access this link to make sure you are aware of the particulars of the code before fixing and or adhering any signs into position.
