Tactile ADA

Tactile ADA

Here at Encompass Sign Systems, our tactile ADA signs are made with the innovative thermoforming, compression-molding process that enables designers the creative latitude to accentuate their client’s brand stylings.  Unprecedented quality, design-rich capabilities and a wholesale pricing model all combine to result in compelling sign packages that meet all ADA requirements. 


ADA Signs Like You’ve Never Seen Before

Our production method allows designers to focus on the smallest details of their ADA sign designs, enabling our team to create visually striking ADA signs with vibrant colors, images, textures and much more.

After the designs are complete and the tactile signs are manufactured, architects and designers alike will find our signs blend seamlessly into any environment, making them the optimal solution for any exterior or interior signage project.

Unprecedented Durability in ADA signs

Our exterior and interior signage solutions balance stunning aesthetics with reliable durability. Every tactile sign we create comes with a life-of-the-property guarantee. They will not suffer the same wear and tear as other signs, and are near indestructible with normal day-to-day use.
