When it comes to following trends in building and facility safety, it often pays dividends to get out in front of it rather than lag behind. This way, you are already where you need to be while others are scrambling to play catch up. This is particularly true when keeping the business or municipality you manage in compliance with state and federal ADA compliance laws. Though not yet required in all states, the New York City Department of Buildings (Local Law 26)
now requires use of ADA compliant luminous signs. The local fire and safety officials believe the new ADA luminescent signs provide an array of safety benefits not available in signs that are either lighted by electricity or not lighted at all.
