Seek the right advice at the design stage, says Fastsigns Chelmsford

Jenny Boreham of Fastsigns Chelmsford (right) FASTSIGNS Chelmsford has been in business since 1995, using innovation and technology to make the sign buying process simple for its customers, from concept to completion. The Fastsigns team regularly supplies customers within Essex and London with Braille and tactile signage.

Business owner Jenny Boreham, has a few words of wisdom: "With Braille signage it's very important to fully understand the Disabilities Discrimination Act (DDA) to avoid applying Braille to signs either unnecessarily or in unsuitable locations. A recent, typical example I came across was a large construction project where the architect had specified Braille/tactile information on a directory board, which was installed at above head height and therefore completely inaccessible. My advice would be to first seek the advice of a signage company that fully understands the DDA, at the design stage, to avoid wasting time and money. FASTSIGNS centres have the expertise to challenge unnecessary decisions, and advise how and where Braille signage should be applied."
