Pennsylvania Handicapped Parking Signs

ADA Compliant Pennsylvania Department Of Transportation Disabled Parking Signs

When it comes to handicap access and accessible spaces, there are regulations in your state that govern which Handicap Parking Signs need to be clearly displayed to point the way for disabled drivers. Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) follows the federal requirements for handicap parking sign compliance. The State of Pennsylvania DOT follows the regulations set forth by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to list the proper signage necessary for any and all handicap stalls. Pennsylvania disabled parking space placards shall include the International Symbol of Accessibility (ISA) on white reflective material. Vehicle parking stalls designating van accessible parking spaces with a striped access aisle should be marked with the description of “van accessible”. The federal R7-8 sign and the Van Accessible R7-8A sign can be mounted onto a u-channel post, square post or be affixed onto the building as long as they are in front of the handicap parking stall. The MUTCD compliant R7-8 disabled parking sign also comes with an empty space to optionally add directional arrows to indicate the locations for designated parking. Our signs come with predrilled holes for simple installation and only take a matter of minutes to mount onto any u-channel post or square post.

What Is The Purpose Of The ADA In Regards To Pennsylvania Handicap Parking Signs

Any facility offering parking for employees or visitors must provide accessible parking for people with disabilities. Handicapped residents of Pennsylvania, or any state for that matter, deserve the same high quality of life as non-disabled residents. The Americans with Disabilities Act helps to ensure that parking areas for schools, the workplace, recreation areas, shopping malls and all public facilities be open and accessible to anyone who wishes to visit them. Accessibility is the key focus for the ADA. By designing and marking special parking spots to be available to those with disabilities, the ADA is making the lives of the handicapped much easier to navigate through. The State of Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s goal is to ensure full accessibility, great quality of life and safety for any and all residents of Pennsylvania.

What is Accessible Parking?

An accessible parking space consists of a vehicle parking stall marked by a reserved handicap sign and handicap symbol painted on the asphalt inside the vehicle space. You may also see a handicap parking space with a striped access aisle which is designated for accessible vehicles to be able to unload any disabled passengers who use a wheelchair. These “Van Accessible” parking spots allow for a lightweight ramp for side-entry to unload and load freely without obstruction, making for an easy entry and exit. Wheelchair accessible vehicles are manufactured to offer ease of access for wheelchair and scooter users. For this reason, it is absolutely important to keep that space clear of obstructions at all times. To comply with Pennsylvania law and avoid fines, please be sure that there are no shopping carts, parked motorcycles or vehicles, trash, foliage, snow or any other obstacles occupying the access aisle that may prevent wheelchair users from using your van accessible parking spots.

We Manufacture Our Signs Using High-End Materials and Premium-quality manufacturing processes

STOPSignsAndMore constructs our Federal and Pennsylvania Handicap sign designs with rustproof, heavy-duty aluminum and reflective sheeting from 3M. The surface of the sheet aluminum is cleaned, deoxidized, and coated with a light and tightly adherent chromate conversion coating, free of powdery residue. We use 5052-H38 sheet aluminum in .063 or .080 gauges pre-treated in accordance to ASTM Designation: B449. All of our Aluminum signs come ready for mounting, with pre-drilled holes at the top and bottom for easy installation.

We also install federally approved fonts using high quality 3M reflective materials and 3M fade-resistant inks. All of our signage offerings are rated by 3M to last for up to seven years without any fading. To increase the lifespan of your signage, you can request that we add the 3M Protective Overlay Film (POF). With this film, you can DOUBLE the lifespan of your signs up to 14 years. Our 3M protective overlay film protects sign faces against fading caused by the sun and other harsh weather conditions. The Protective Overlay Film (POF) also helps you to remove graffiti, paint or other markings of vandalism easier without the necessity of abrasive cleaners or devices.
