Braille Signage

On the 1st October 2004, part 3 of the disability discrimination act amendments issued strict guidelines regarding equal access to all people using public buildings, including educational venues.

Braille signs should be placed at a suitable height, allowing for them to be reached by anyone "unaided". The general guidelines are between a height of 1400mm and 1700mm from the floor.

The signs should also be placed at each entry point, at toilet locations, at fire exits and all exits.

Identification signs, for example door signs, should be located next to the door - this means they can still be accessed should the door have been left open.
